The TiVo HD is a user-friendly PVR chock-full of interactive features, resulting in a device that's full of potential. It comes with everything you need to record World Cup matches, including a 320GB inbuilt hard drive and dual high-definition tuners. TiVo2Go’s cross-format copying feature allows you to transcode recorded television shows into iPod and PlayStation Portable formats – perfect for watching soccer on the go.

The TiVo HD has one of the best user interfaces we’ve seen: it’s prettier, more feature-packed and more streamlined than the majority of PVRs, The electronic program guide segment of the interface is very easy to navigate and manages to cram plenty of program and channel info into a simple hideaway menu. The recording presets allow you to tweak plenty of options, including timer padding — so you don't miss out on injury time, for example.
