HAVA for iPhone
Monsoon has announced upcoming iPhone support for its TV placeshifting hardware, HAVA. Designed to work through broadband Internet or a network-connected PC, HAVA allows users to watch and control live TV, including satellite and TiVo content. With the iPhone application, users will have access to an on-screen remote from which they can watch TV, pause, change channels, browse a program guide and launch recorded shows.
Also coming is a tool for exporting HAVA DVR recordings to iTunes, which will allow offline viewing on a handheld. Both the HAVA iPhone app and the export tool for iTunes will be available as free downloads; HAVA for iPhone is slated to be released during the second quarter of 2009, while the export utility will come in the first.
