TiVo iPad app to get Series 3 support 'soon'

TiVo iPad app to steer Series 3 DVRs too

A notice in the TiVo for iPad app has validated hopes that it might come to Series 3 DVRs. A quiet update to the app on Monday (free, App Store) is now producing a pop-up message that tells users that full support is coming for set-top boxes provided by cable providers RCN and Suddenlink as well as "limited support" for the Series 3 and related TiVo HD. The update is "coming soon," it said.

What limitations were coming wasn't said, but the older software and hardware could rule out interface tricks such as keeping the interface off of the TV when browsing as well as some of the Internet-specific video services. Direct control is probable, and both Facebook as well as Twitter sharing are specific to the app and should be independent.

The company had never promised support for devices earlier than the Series 4 era and had been criticized by longtime TiVo owners who didn't want to upgrade. TiVo hardware has supported control over the local network for some time, but usually only through desktop apps. [via ZatzNotFunny]
