TiVo as a Podcast – Netcast player

Posted By on November 19, 2006

TiVo Screenshot of PodcastSince I’m relatively new to my Series 2 TiVo branded DVR and have recently networked it rather than use the phone line connections, I though I would play with a few of the less used features today. One of them is to access Internet content in the form of ‘netcasts’ … previously known as ‘podcasts’ until Apple Computer decided to defend its claim to the name? Anyway, here is a YouTube clip that I’ve uploaded that demonstrates how TiVo handles podcasts.

The clip is from the TWIT technology discussions talking about Microsoft’s restrictive reviewers agreement for its “iPod” like device called the “Zune.” (BTW, as for the Zune device itself, even Bill Gates exercises caution when bragging about the device.)

    I’ve had a Tivo for years and never knew about this! Thanks but don’t think I need more junk to listen too. 🙂

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
