Yahoo has made available a beta version of its Yahoo Go for TV software that can turn any TV-tuner-card-equipped PC into a DVR.
The free software comes with a daily updated onscreen programming guide. Its basic requirements include a PC with at least 20GB of free space, 512MB of memory and a minimum 1GHz processor. The PC connects to a television via its audio/video ports, which means the PC and TV should be co-located. The programming stored on the PC can then be accessed by other computers through a home network.
The new software does not interfere with consumers who already use TiVo as long as each device has access to the TV signal.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
