Podcast #792: Tivo Update, One Year Later…

Last May, on Episode 740, we talked about moving to a Tivo based system for home television instead of a (typically) much more expensive standard Cable or Satellite package. We built our system around the Tivo Bolt and a few Tivo Minis for whole-house DVR.

Hulu is already somewhat organized around TV shows, so it feels like a bit of an app-based DVR. Add live content behind that and it simply feels like it belongs there. You don’t feel like you have two separate sides to the same app. Live TV flowed seamlessly in the interface.

We discuss a couple interesting takes on how to use smart home technology to enable those who may not otherwise want to jump into something so “techie.” Voice control alone could be huge for many as they age or those with serious injuries or disabilities.
