Nero tells Digital Home TIVO on your PC within 12 months
For those of you who missed it, last November Nero, developers of multimedia digital media software, and TiVo announced they had entered into an agreement to integrate TiVo's television user experience with Nero's next generation of PC software.
The goal would be software that could turn your PC into a TIVO digital video recorder. Plug a coaxial cable into your computer, output the signal to a television and your PC would do double duty as a TIVO unit.
When the announcement was made last year, no time frame was given as to when consumers might expect the new software, however, today I spoke to Richard Carriere President and General Manager of Nero who told me that consumers could expect the TIVO software to be available in the next 12 months.
