TiVo and Pace push 6 way cable gateway

By PETER WHITE

Published: 25 May, 2012

TiVo and the world's largest set top maker Pace have announced the first product from their collaboration and we can now see why the two are working together - it's a cable home gateway, probably beyond anything that TiVo could build on its own, but by adding TiVo capabilities onto the Pace specialisms, this could sweep through cable operator networks as the multiroom solution.

The device has 6 tuners - the TiVo Premiere already being delivered at RCN has 4 tuners so this is a sign of the time. It may be a co-incidence that MaxLinear (see separate story) this week has come out with a chip that has 6 or 8 tuners onboard, but it may also be a clue to the supplier of this component.

The new device is called the Pace XG1 multi-tuner video gateway and it offers DOCSIS 3.0 too. Additionally it comes with TiVo's new whole home solution - effectively it can feed smaller TiVo devices for each TV in the home, as well as transcode for tablets and phones and such.

Tom Rogers, President and CEO said, "Consumers not only want an enjoyable TV experience, but now demand choice and the flexibility to watch content on multiple devices and screens within the home. TiVo has worked with our operator customers to create a suite of affordable companion devices that deliver a cohesive experience regardless of the screen the customer wants to use."

US cable operators currently deploying TiVo include Charter, RCN, Suddenlink and Grande Communications, and in Europe Virgin Media, in the UK and ONO in Spain.
