“TiVoToGo lets owners of TiVo boxes transfer TV shows to their computers, including laptops. The content can also be transferred to gadgets compatible with Microsoft’s Portable Media Center format. TiVo is expanding that service by permitting shows to be encoded and transferred to Sony’s portable game machine, the PlayStation Portable, and to iPods capable of playing video,” Scott Ard reports for CNET News. “TiVo said beta testing will begin in ‘coming weeks’ for owners of newer Series2 boxes who also own a video iPod or PSP. By April of next year, all subscribers should be able to use the feature.”
Ard reports, “TiVoToGo does not support the Mac operating system, so this extension of the program also will not be available. A Mac version of the service is expected sometime next year. To recap: TiVo owners with a Series2 box who subscribe directly with TiVo and have a Windows-based PC and a video-capable iPod or PSP can use the service.”

Oh, the good old “sometime next year” line, huh? Forgive us for not believing it until we see it. Long-time Mac users know that “Mac support coming soon” too often means “get lost Mac users, we can’t bother to support you.” Hey, maybe TiVo will be the exception to the rule? We’re watching and waiting TiVo.
