TiVo Premiere Goes Elite
TiVo just keeps upping the ante with their Premiere line of DVRs, and the newly announced TiVo Premiere Elite is no exception. Packing support for four CableCARD tuners, MoCA bridging, and 2 TB of storage along with all of the streaming service support that TiVo has been bundling in for a while now, the Premiere Elite looks to be a beast of a DVR. According to the datasheet and the Networking Options section of the TiVo website, the Premiere Elite also supports streaming shows from one TiVo DVR to another, though it appears that might be limited to streaming to another TiVo Premiere. At $500, the TiVo Premiere Elite even seems priced right, though as always, one must add in the price of the TiVo service.
Right on schedule, coinciding with the 2011 CEDIA Expo, TiVo has made the TiVo Premiere Elite official. The 2 terabyte, quad tuning digital cable DVR will hit Magnolia outposts, TiVo.com and custom installers by the end of the year… assuming the FCC grants TiVo an analog tuner waiver (which is highly likely).
