However, all of this changed dramatically in early 2004 when TiVo purchased a small company called Strangeberry, which, led by Arthur Van Hoff, a seasoned software engineer from Sun’s Java labs, created a robust platform for delivering broadband content to low-powered television-connected devices. TiVo feverishly began work to merge the Strangeberry technology into its Series2 TiVo boxes, and by November of 2004, TiVo delivered the first early release version of a flexible and completely open source Java SDK initiative for creating network-powered applications for TiVo boxes, and dubbed it the Home Media Engine.

These can connect to both Ethernet and Wi-Fi networks. These drivers, along with some great software, allow users to make TiVo part of their life beyond avoiding the drama of missing their favorite television show. Proving its commitment of transitioning TiVo boxes from a DVR to a digital lifestyle device, TiVo’s newest generation of hardware includes a physical Ethernet port, allowing TiVo boxes to connect directly to household networks out of the box without the need to consider external USB network adapters.

11g wireless network adapter. Unlike normal USB wireless network adapters, this one has specialized firmware and chipset components that make this the most compatible and fastest wireless network adapter available for the TiVo hardware platform. In fall 2006, TiVo added support to its adapter for WPA security, offering better security on your wireless home network. We highly suggest that if you do need to have your TiVo box join a wireless network that you seek out the TiVo-branded adapter. Following is a table of the officially TiVo-certified USB wireless network adapters that work on all Series2 and Series3 TiVo boxes, along with the wireless standard in which they can connect.
