We are big fans of the TiVo interface and ease of use. Not much has changed with TiVo (sans sharing and some web additions) until now with the all-new TiVo interface TiVo Premiere ($299.99 to $499.99 for XL). The new TiVo Premiere interface loves HDTV, is ready to connect to the web, and can search across many platforms including YouTube, the internet, cable, Netflix, Blockbuster, Amazon On Demand, and all new movie and TV collections. The interface/database is improved as well with the ability to get more info on shows or actors by clicking. Additionally you can now see how much space is left on your TiVo and have access to FrameChannel and Pandora Radio.
The new TiVo comes in standard Premiere and and XL model. They both offer HD recording, an E-SATA port for external storage, 1080p video output, and a multistream CableCARD slot. The XL version has a higher capacity (from 45 hours up to 150 hours) and THX certification.
