Mac Standalone TiVoToGo Client A “Possibility” Says Roxio
As most of you are aware, just a couple of days ago, Roxio and TiVo announced that they had partnered up on a TiVoToGo solution for the Mac. The only problem with this partnership is that you have to pay ~$100 (without rebates) to get this software. For somebody who is cheap like me, this is a lot of money. Especially considering the fact that an upgrade to OS X Tiger only costs $129.
The folks over at tuaw (the unofficial Apple weblog) were able to speak with somebody at the Roxio booth(Macworld 07) about the possibility of Roxio developing a stand-alone TiVoToGo client for the Mac. The nice thing about a standalone client would be that it would cost less since you wouldn’t be getting the CD/DVD burning capability that Roxio provides. According to tuaw, the Roxio folks said that they would consider producing a standalone client if enough people showed an interest.
