It is always nice to be able to see something that you worked on actually being used. While I worked at TiVo, I worked on the project to download video to the DVRs.
Now you can download Amazon Unbox videos directly to Series2 or Series3 TiVos. I was curious about Amazon Unbox, but previously it was only available on Windows PCs. Also, I never thought that watching video on a small computer screen was a compelling experience
Currently, when you sign up for Amazon Unbox for your TiVo, Amazon will give you a $15 credit to try some downloads. So, this evening, I selected a documentary. It didn't take that long to download. I haven't watched it yet, so I don't know what the quality is. I will put my comments on the quality later.
Update: I just watch the movie, and the quality was pretty good. The quality is pretty similar to standard-def content on my Series3. I didn't see any video artifacts in the video.
