Update: 8/7 @ 11:08PM 2.5 still isn’t available on TiVo’s website. I’m not sure what TiVoPony was talking about. Hopefully 2.5 ends up being available tomorrow…
TiVoPony (a TiVo employee) has announced that TiVo is going to release TiVoDesktop 2.5 tomorrow. 2.5 appears to be a major upgrade. According to TiVoPony, 2.5 will include the following new features:
* Support for Windows Vista
* Support for DixV and Xvid formats for Web Video Conversions (wrapped in .avi or .divx containers).
* Convert individual shows from Desktop’s Now Playing list at any time, to any profile, by right-clicking.
As of right now, 2.5 has not been posted to TiVo’s website. I can hardly wait to try this version since it includes a lot of new features. Hopefully the support for Vista will be a welcome addition for a lot of people. Stay tuned for more information once the software is available on TiVo’s website.
Now if only we could get an update to the Mac version of TiVoDesktop…..
