TiVo Releases New TiVo Wireless N Network Adapter

By Nathesh, TMCnet Contributor

TiVo, a dealer in advanced television services, has stated that they have release a new TiVo (News - Alert) Wireless N Network Adapter that is specifically designed to enable customers transfer and download content faster within the home using TiVo Premiere and TiVo Premiere XL music, web and mobile features.

Officials with the company have commented that the new Wireless N Adapter takes users' TiVo DVR broadband experience up a notch, making moving content within the home both faster and more convenient. They've offered a Wireless G Adapter for many years, but just as Premiere was their first step in the next evolution of the DVR, they wanted to upgrade their total offering with the addition of a new Wireless N Adapter focused on speed and performance. They'll continue to release accessories and features that further improve the overall customer experience, leaving the competition behind.

Using the TiVo Wireless N Network Adapter consumers can connect their TiVo box to their 802.11n, g or b wireless home network and the solution's greater range offers optimized performance from anywhere in the house. It has multi-room viewing feature that allows transfer of recordings from one TiVo box to another with greater efficiency.

As TiVo's first adapter that takes advantage of the 802.11n networking standard, the Wireless N Adapter is designed to deliver quicker transfer speeds, across longer ranges and with less interference by using the 5GHz versus 2.4GHz band.

The TiVo Wireless N Adapter is also available in a Double Pack that enables users to create a fast, N-speed connection without having to upgrade their entire home network. They can just plug one adapter into their TiVo box and the other into their existing wireless G- or B-speed router and they'll establish an N-speed connection to move their HD entertainment faster. The advantage of Double Pack is that offers shorter download times, speedier streaming and quicker multi-room viewing.

The Wireless N Adapter is for use with TiVo Premiere, TiVo HD, TiVo Series3 HD or TiVo Series2 dual-tuner DVRs. TiVo Desktop or TiVo Desktop Plus software is required for music, photos and TiVoToGo transfers.
