TiVo Premiere to get UI overhaul, apps?

updated 04:40 pm EST, Thu February 11, 2010

TiVo's next DVR could have fully HD native UI

The TiVo Premiere if launched at TiVo's special event next month could center on an interface revamp, a tip says this afternoon. The software would finally take full advantage of HDTV resolutions. It may also include a streamlined way of loading apps and media as well as improved search.

The update if it comes about would also represent a sea change for TiVo as it would accompany a phase-out of Series 2 DVRs, which have been in the company's lineup for the majority of TiVo's existence and have to date been kept around to accommodate non-HD video. Only Series 3 devices like the original Series 3, the HD and the HD XL would get the new interface.

No new info has surfaced regarding the Premiere, but apart from multi-stream CableCARD support its main changes are likely to be a smaller shape and a larger capacity hard drive.
