WiLife: TiVo’s Wireless G USB Network Adapter
This little monkey is a USB drive you plug in the back of your Tivo. By doing so, your Tivo and your home computer can talk to each other. The main benefit for you is that you can schedule your Tivo from your computer. After reviewing the USB device, iLounge.com suggests even more advantages:
Because of the connection, it’s now possible to transfer the TiVo’s contents to a networked PC or another TiVo, if I had one, as well as to access MP3 music and photos stored on either a Mac or PC. And in addition to the fact that a phone line’s no longer necessary for TV schedule updates, you can also program your TiVo to record from the web with a feature called Online Scheduling, even if you’re not at home – useful if someone from the office recommends a show and you can’t get home in time to set up the recording.
