TiVo Photo Streaming

TiVo today revealed that its digital video recorders will all support streaming photos directly from online image sites such as Photobucket and Picasa, allowing subscribers to its service to view and distribute images to TVs without buying a second media hub. The feature supports viewing one's own collection and viewing others, but also allows users to view customized feeds regardless of the owner. A subscriber can view photos from either service by keyword tags that automatically update as new images are posted online.

All images will display at the maximum resolution of the DVR in question, TiVo says: the HD and Series 3 devices will both output large images at or near the full resolutions of HDTV sets. The update should be available starting today and will be available for free for every TiVo, though a broadband connection is recommended for heavy use.
