Smart Home Control of Heos Multi-Room Audio Solution
If music be the food of love, play on-- all over the house. Thanks to a recent partnership between Denon and Control4, consumers should have no problem playing their favorite songs in every room.
Stream HD Video, Store 1000 of Hours of DVR Content, and Download for Offline Viewing
The Roamio is the latest in a long line of consumer level digital video recorders from Tivo. It takes all of the features that home users everywhere have come to love and elevates them to the next level, allowing you one simple solution for all of your over the air TV recording needs.
Tivo Roamio Features
The Tivo Roamio includes four separate tuners, allowing you to record up to four different shows at the same time. All four tuners are fully HD compatible, meaning that you can enjoy the benefit of full high definition, 1080p or 720p playback whenever you'd like.
To make things even better, the device comes with a 500 gigabyte hard drive - larger than what you would be able to get from renting a DVR on a monthly basis from most cable television service providers. This will allow you to store hundreds of hours of full HD video without needing to worry about what you're going to be forced to delete to make room for the latest episode of your favorite show.
Perhaps the best feature of the Roamio (and the biggest difference from previous iterations of the company's DVR systems) has to do with the built-in Wi-Fi connection and the large number of streaming apps that are available. When you're not using your DVR to record over the air shows, you can use it to connect to the Internet and watch streaming content from Netflix, Hulu Plus, Vudu and more.
Using the Roamio
Since its inception, Tivo is a company that has always prided itself on simplicity. The Tivo Roamio continues this fine tradition by offering software that is not only easy to use, but an interface that is even easier to navigate. The graphical user interface of the Roamio has been redesigned and streamlined compared to older models, allowing you to begin recording much faster and change any necessary settings with minimal hassles.
Smart Home Connectivity
Because the Tivo Roamio is connected to your home Wi-Fi network, you can also control it in a number of ways that have nothing to do with the recorded remote. You can use iOS and Android apps to use your tablet or smartphone to delete shows, add new recordings and more whenever you'd like. You can even access the DVR while you're away from home to set a recording that you forgot to do before you left the house.
