TiVo have outed their latest peripheral for the newest TiVo Premiere, and if you’ve been regularly tripping over a stretch of ethernet cable running between your router and the DVR then the TiVo Wireless N Network Adapter should save your knees. Backward compatible with WiFi b/g, the 802.11n adapter is all about speed: whether that be faster video-on-demand downloads, transferring HD files between multiple TiVo units, or speedier exporting to portable devices.
Installation looks straightforward, though it’s not quite as plug-and-play as a regular USB WiFi adapter; instead it works more as an ethernet bridge, with two connections: one for power and the other plugging into the Premiere’s ethernet port. While it’s billed as a TiVo Premiere accessory it will in fact work with all TiVo DVRs bar the DIRECTV DVR with TiVo.
The TiVo Wireless N Network Adapter is available to buy online from the company’s webstore now, priced at $89.99. It’s also expected to land in Best Buy stores later on this week.
