TiVo users can now remotely control DVR via i.TV

i.TV has released an update to its self-titled iPhone app, which now supports a variety of remote control functions. Version 2.0 sports a new interface, redesigned for improved simplicity and aesthetics. iTunes integration allows users to discover related TV and movie content, then simply tap to download the videos from iTunes. The new push notification feature sends alerts when a favorite TV show is about to air.

The app provides both a TV guide and a new framework that allows third parties to develop their own remote controls for use on the system. TiVo remote is the first "soft remote" on i.TV, with controls for changing the channel, fast forward, recording, and playing favorite shows or channels.

i.TV 2.0 is available as a free download for the iPhone or iPod touch.
