IceTV's Keyword Record service

IceTV has announced new features for PVRs and Media Centre PCs that use its service. Any device that is able to connect to the IceTV Interactive Web-scheduling service now has the ability to record via keywords.

Users can simply navigate to the IceTV Interactive Web site, sign in to their accounts and then add a Keyword Record note. Once a television show or movie that matches the keyword enters the schedule — ranging from actors to directors to genres and more — it will be set for recording.

Since the majority of IceTV-connected devices have hard drive storage larger than the TiVo’s 160GB, this service should allow plenty of shows to be recorded before hard drive space runs out.

For space-conscious users the system can be set up to flag shows meeting keyword criteria as Favourites — so they’ll be marked in the IceTV Interactive schedule but not recorded.

The features come at no cost and join a long list of updates to the IceTV Interactive service throughout 2008. The IceTV team say there's more to come in 2009, including downloadable content.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
