TiVo reveal new hardware; Update for iPad TiVo App

A report over at Engadget/TMCNet reveals TiVo's future hardware plans - a new, quad-tuner PVR called the Premiere Q, and the Preview, described as TiVo's first non-DVR HD set-top box, which acts as a client to the local TiVo PVR.

While the Premiere Q packs an extra tuner compared to Virgin's TiVo, the Preview sounds on par with the previously annouced plans to bring TiVo software to Virgin's non-PVR, the V box, and in time (we hope), allow streaming of recorded content from the main TiVo box to any V box in your home.

The report also mentions that the TiVo iPad App will receive an update which allows Cable VOD content to be accesssed and then 'flicked' to a TiVo box. The App is expected to be available for Virgin Media's TiVo at some point this year.
