TiVo Premiere

For those of you (like us) who've been waiting years for an all-new TiVo interface, feast your eyes on the TiVo Premiere ($300). The new interface takes full advantage of HDTVs as well as its web-connectedness, with the ability to search across standard cable, YouTube, the web, Netflix, Amazon On Demand, and Blockbuster, all new specific movie and TV collections — like Oscar and Emmy winners — the ability to click on a show or actor to learn more, an on-screen space meter, and new content from Pandora Radio and FrameChannel. The standard TiVo Premiere will offer up to 45 hours of HD recording, E-SATA for external storage, video output up to 1080p, and a single multistream CableCARD slot; the beefier XL model ($500) steps up to 150 hours of HD recording and adds THX certification. As an added bonus for Adobe supporters, the new interface is built on Flash, so you'll know who to blame if it starts crashing more often than a NASCAR rookie driving with a blindfold on.
