Ed Brill Reviews TiVoToGo
Another review out on the new TiVoToGo add on. This time from Ed Brill. Although Ed appreciates that it’s a freebie kind of service for him he is not wild about it:
“This is a nice incremental feature for TiVo, but it’s not a barn-burner. There are other PVR solutions that allow PC playback without all this extra work.”
Like a lot of others out there Ed cites the slow transfer speed as a significant limitation to the service. He does note however that the transfer can run in the background on a PC allowing you to do other things while it is going on.
A while back Michael Gartenberg suggested that the TiVoToGo speed problem probably has more to do with people’s wireless networks than the service itself, but it is inevitible that the service will be blamed for slow speeds.
