DVR iPhone/iPod sync

A new version of the Beyond TV software (4.7) adds the ability to automatically sync recordings to the iPod and iPhone via an optional plug-in using H.264 compression. It can also make use of an iTunes podcast RSS feed to push television recordings to your iPod or iPhone. Another new feature is drive pooling, which lets you treat a group of hard drives as one recording folder and automatically manage and distribute the content you have recorded. There's also built-in support for Firefly Mobile allowing the use of iPhones, other smartphones and mobile devices as remote controls for the device. Community Recordings is a feature that will automatically record the top shows each day as reported by Beyond TV Buzz.

Other features improved relative to previous releases include the ability to extend the recording time while a job is currently being recorded by hitting the record button and adding the amount of time needed (up to 3 hours), an update to the "Record This Timeslot" option that adds "Record Only on This Day" as an option. Further, users can now recover recordings that might have been interrupted due to a power outage, machine reboot, etc. Beyond TV is priced at $70.

    PC only...

    When you mention a piece of software on a primarily mac website - even if it is electronista - it would be helpful if you stated it was (PC only) right after you name the title of the software so that some don't waste time checking it out.
