TiVo Mobile for iPhone
TiVo and web firm Mobui today rolled out TiVo Mobile. The web app gives the iPhone, iPod touch and other mobile devices with full web browsers the ability to remotely schedule one of TiVo's Series 2 or 3 DVRs and to find shows using most of the criteria the set-top boxes themselves use, including content and keywords from shows as well as daily highlights and popular shows.
Accessing the service is free and doesn't require a TiVo just to browse shows, though scheduling appropriately requires both a TiVo and an active subscription. Mobui and TiVo are currently offering the Mobile site as a beta and should be launching it in a more official capacity within the next few weeks.
