AMD unveils media processor, teams with TiVo for DVRs

I’m stuck on a plane waiting for departure at Logan – 2 hour delay so far, still waiting. But I have my laptop and a BlueTooth phone with GPRS. ;-) And so I can bring you this:

AMD has unveiled a system-on-chip (SoC) solution for portable media players that supports direct video content transfer to digital video recorders and scaling to DVD-quality displays. At the same time, AMD is partnering with TiVo to support its new DVR initiative.

Wouldn’t that be nice? A portable media player you just plug into the TiVo’s USB port and fill with shows? :-) Some of us has been speculating about that since the Series2 came out. :-) Then there was the TAZ I, which was announced at the last CES but is still vapor.
