Tivo releases TivoToGo

Tivo, the acknowledged leader in Personal Video Recorders (PVRs), has announced the availability of their new TivoToGo service. Of course, they've short-sightedly released it only for the PC (Windows 2000 and Windows XP), but if you have a Series 2 TiVo (people with DirecTV TiVos need not apply), you can download the software and try downloading your favorite programs to your computer. Later in January, they'll be releasing a version of Sonic DVD that allows you to copy your programs to DVD.

There is, however, a note that indicates that you may not be able to transfer some programs, due to the originators requesting that they not be available for taping (think of it as the TiVo no-record flag).
