DirecTV, which has a Tivo HD in the works, is going all in on the DVR tip. In short, the HDPC-20 is supposed to make it a snap to get hi-def content on your PC with DVR functionality and presumably an EPG. The additional value adds are unspecified special features thanks to Windows, a remote, all in one media (movies, music, etc), powerful search functions and streaming to Windows compatible devices, such as the Xbox 360.
I’ll take a Tivo, thank you. No word on price or release date.
