A quick note to any of our American readers thinking about laying your hands on a TiVo HD IPTV set top box. According to the good folks over at Gizmodo, you are going to need the official TiVo Wireless Adapter.
TiVo lists on its site that you need to use TiVo branded gear for the unit, which is a bit of a shame although at least the company is being forward in informing you, the consumers, about it.
It seems that seeing as the new TiVo HD unit runs Linux, there are only very few drivers for wireless adapters included in the OS, meaning that third-party devices won’t work. Makes us wonder why TiVo didn’t just build their own wireless adapter into the unit in the first place. *harrumph*[Via Gizmodo]
