Tivo hopes to hit home

Home networking features to come as standard

TiVo is to include home networking features as standard with its devices and users will be able to schedule recordings online.

TiVo is also working to allow movies and music from the internet to be downloaded to TiVo digital video recorders. The service will enable users to get films on their TV sets, aside from pay-per-view films.

No date has been set for the download services.

The TiVo home networking feature works on wireless and wired home networks by connecting a network adapter to the USB port on the TiVo Series2 devices. Virtually all TiVo customers have Series2 boxes, the spokeswoman said.

Sony and Philips have announced similar products, where consumer electronics devices form the home entertainment hub.
