Yahoo! TV, which is like an online version of TV Guide, has updated its Tivo scheduling service to now include support for the Tivo Series 3. The features of this update are outlined by the Yahoo! TV blog:
- TiVo Series 2 and TiVo Series 3 receivers supported. We previously only supported Series 2 TiVo receivers.
- Manage multiple TiVo devices. Users with multiple TiVo devices can now program all of their TiVos through our service, choosing which TiVo records which shows.
- Easy to read receiver names. We now display your DVR name, as you’ve set at TiVo.com, as receiver name. So for users with multiple devices, you’ll no longer need to guess which TiVo box you’re recording to with a numeric device name. We now display whatever name you associate to your TiVo boxes.
The idea behind this website/service is to encourage you to browse what is on TV and then tell your Tivo to record it. Overall, I think it is a pretty good idea and would love to see Vista media center supported as well. To take advantage of the programming capability offered by Yahoo! TV, simply click the “Sign Up” button on the Yahoo! TV TiVo page to get started.
