TiVo refreshes lineup with 6-tuner Roamio DVRs


TiVo is unveiling a new line of digital video recorders to give television viewers more control over what they watch on traditional channels and over the Internet.

The fifth-generation DVRs - from the company that pioneered the devices - come as consumers have a growing number of choices for finding and watching video. Those options include streaming devices such as Roku and DVRs from cable companies.
TiVo is hoping avid television viewers will prefer one device to do it all - the new Roamio DVR.
The mid-range model can store as much as 150 hours of high-definition television and record up to six channels at once. It also lets users stream live and recorded shows to iPhone and iPads.
The Roamio is TiVo's first major update in three years.
