    LiquidTV sub is handled by Nero. Nero did the software nad licensed the TiVo software.

    Despite the service codes looking very similar to TiVo's, they aren't the same, and TiVo doesn't handle LiquidTV subscriptions at all (fat chance for MSD or MSD Lifetime subs).

    And the LiquidTV works with an Hauppage HD-PVR so you can connect it to a cablebox for high-def. For some people, that's the only option.

    The tuner that comes with LiquidTV will work just fine under Windows 7 Media Center. No need to pay Tivo any monthly fees to use it. WMC can do just about everything that the Tivo software can do and much more.

    It's September 30, 2012 and I'm ready to install the Nero Liquid TV that I bought for $35 three years ago. Is anyone still using Nero Liquid TV (or the TV Tuner and Liquid TV remote with other software). My computer is an Acer Aspire Revo (Nvidia Ion / Intel Atom) with 3 GB RAM and Windows XP SP3.

    Its discontinued and has some sever problems
    In win7

    Too bad, it was a great idea and a natural
    Upgrade to tivo desktop but it is not working

    You probably will not get the product to register to
    Get guide data at this point

    I'm guessing it didn't go... LOL!

    And yes, I know I am resurrecting a very old thread, but that it because I just found MY LiquidTV that I never got around to installing. :cool:

    And not sure I am going to try installing it, but rather will list it on Ebay. I'm just wondering if I want to list it simply as the LiquidTV, or should I make mention that it can be used with other software and is a great little tuner? :eek: Suggestions?

    What software does it work with? I have one sitting in a box. I did install it. It was pretty cool, a tivo on a pc. I even had it do recordings and tivodecoded them way back when

    Blast from the past... forgot I had a watch on this thread.
    Wow, I think you were one of the few for whom the install and software actually worked. Mine never did, tried a couple different computers. The tuner stick should be great but I don't recall whether I got it to work right with my laptop and windows 7 media center. Never got beyond that. I should sell mine on ebay too, if it has any value... has an atsc and ntsc tuner in it...

    I was just curious if the Nero LiquidTV remote (peanut remote) can work with a regular TiVo set-top box (Series 1,2, and 3). Can someone test and see if it works?

    I was pretty sure the answer was yes, but I actually pulled out my old Liquid TV remote and confirmed it works with my Bolt+, so I'm sure it will work with those older boxes. Not sure what the Stop and DVD Menu buttons would do.

    In TE2 the Stop button would stop playing a show and return you to the menu. Not sure what, if anything, it does in TE3 or TE4. The DVD menu button never did anything on regular TiVos. It only worked on the DVD units. The regular units just ignored it.
