A new patent filing shows that Apple will finally release a useful home media center solution: a digital video recorder. The patents not only indicates that you’ll be able to record up coming shows and stream video from the iTunes story, but you’ll be able to program the device from an iPod like remote. Details are a little scarce, but according to Appleinsider one will be able to fill up the remote with select shows and the device will run a Tivo like algorithm to determine other shows that might be of interest.
I can’t see why Apple wouldn’t integrate the iPhone and iPod Touch into this system.
