    Hey guys,

    I know you've been anxiously awaiting TiVoToGo and Multi-Room Viewing on your Series3 and TiVoHD boxes.

    I wanted to let you know that development has been progressing smoothly, and all is well. You can expect TTG & MRV to be available for Series3 and TiVoHD this November.

    These features will provide support for video transfers between Series3 & Series2 systems and between a Series3/Series2 system and a PC. High Definition content will not be supported for transfer or playback on a Series2 system (Series2's just can't play HD), and copy-protected High Def or Standard Def content cannot be transferred (same as our current Series2 products). The aptly yet unofficially named TiVoToComeBack also will be supported, including HD content (originally recorded on a TiVo DVR).

    It's not far off guys. ;)

    Pony

    ps - If you've been beta testing this stuff, you have a beta forum to participate in. Shoo! Get out of here! Remember the first rule of beta club... :)

    [edit - clarified that HD TTCB is initially for content originally recorded on a TiVo DVR, not HD content from other sources]

    Sweet! Happy to see the "official" news (finally.) The Series 3 (and TiVoHD) now rock completely, no excuses. :)

    Will shows recorded in HD be able to be transfer and be shown in SD on the S2?

    From the OP: "High Definition content will not be supported for transfer /../ on a Series2 system"

    This is good news!

    A question: will the Series 3 TTCB be MPEG-4 compatible?

    Is there a way to tell which programs I have currently recorded are copy protected? It would be nice to get a feel for what won't be transferable.

    From TivoDeskTop, the shows on my S2 that are not available for TTG are marked with a X next to them, instead of the green or yellow dots like the ones you see in NowPlayingList.

    OK, I assume that since HD is so locked up by the networks it won't be transferrable between S3 devices? TivoPony doesn't mention this specific relationship...and the whole reason I would purchase I a second TivoHD.

    Yes, HD will be transferable between S3 devices, HD Tivos, and Computers, and between them.

    ONLY those shows that are copy-protected flagged can't be transferred.

    Yunlin12,

    Since I don't have a s2, and obviously TivoDeskTop does not yet show content on an S3

    What I would like to know... is what shows are you getting an "X" marked next to them that ARE copy protected and are unable to transfer?

    Are they from the Major Networks that are also OTA (Such as NBC, Fox, CBS etc...) or
    are they from the cable side networks? (ESPN, Showtime, HBO... etc.)

    Just curious what shows are coming with the copy protected flag and which are not

    thanks

    TGC

    Thanks Pony for the update! Now all of us can tell Santa that we want a TiVoHD for Christmas to go as a companion for our S3s.

    The pretty bow would be the ability to either transfer Lifetime from our current S2s or even better - a one day after Thanksgiving sale that bundles Lifetime membership (non-transferrable) with a TiVoHD or S3 purchase (Must have purchased an HD series TiVo between 9/06 and 11/07, i.e a loyalty reward for those of us that have endured pixelation and cableCard battles).

    I can dream...

    Once this kicks in to wide use we are really going to find out which MSOs are incorrectly tagging their transmissions with respect to CCI bits. I imagine any digital show tagged as 'Copy Once' will not be able to be transferred.

    On the up-side, there was fear that we would not be able to transfer ANY digital shows. I was fully expecting the first incarnation of this to be for analog channels only.

    This is great news. I might even consider a THD companion to my S3 and burn off that old grandfathered S1.

    One more question...

    Can someone explain TivoToComeBack? exactly what is that? Is that video transfer from PC to Tivo? Or what?

    Thanks

    yes like dumping your home videos in mpeg format to the My Tivo Recordings folder in My Documents, now shows up in Now Playing (with a little computer icon next to it, ala, transfer from computer to tivo and watch)
