TiVo’s Home Media Option Now Free

TiVo’s Home Media Option, previously a $99 upgrade, is now free for all TiVo Series 2 owners. Once you have connected your TiVo to your network, you’ll have access to web-based scheduling, multi-room viewing, music streaming, and photo browsing. A downloadable PDF guide describes these features in greater detail.

While being able to remotely schedule programs via TiVo Central Online is a great feature, most Mac folks will be more interested in serving up their iTunes music and iPhoto pictures into their living room via the easy-to-use TiVo interface and remote. So hurry up and order TiVo’s recommended USB networking adapters — the wired Linksys USB100TX or the wireless Linksys WUSB11 — and then start streaming music and browsing photos from your Mac-based media server via the TiVo Desktop software.
