TiVoToGo is live! The feature — which was announced a year ago nearly to the day — will allow people to copy shows from their TiVo box to their Windows PCs. If you're anxious to get started follow the instructions on TiVo's site to make sure your TiVo box is updated, add a network adapter if you haven't already and download the latest version of TiVo Desktop.
For more information, be sure to check out this post from TiVoBill on the forums. There are a bunch of caveats that go along with TiVoToGo like it not working with non-Windows computers (they're working on Mac support), DVD burning TiVos or DirecTiVos. Then there's this DRM doozie:
Note: Not all shows may be eligible for transfer from your TiVo box to your computer. Programming providers may restrict or limit the ability to record, display, view or transfer any particular program using a variety of copy protection mechanisms.
See our post about "transitional fair use" for more about what that could mean in the future.
We'll be sure to post our impressions of the feature once we get a chance to actually use it.
