Yahoo plans to connect services with TiVo

In a move that further blurs the lines of television and the Internet, Yahoo and TiVo have partnered to schedule downloads to TiVo boxes from any Internet connection.

Uh, no. CNet seems to have missed the mark on this one. You do not ‘schedule downloads’, and this doesn’t provide access to anything other than scheduling recordings via Yahoo’s TV pages, just like TiVo Central Online and an earlier deal with AOL. I would also say that this is not ‘Tahiti’ (TiVo’s codename for new features), as announced earlier. Tahiti is more far reaching, and online scheduling in general has been around since HMO. If Yahoo and TiVo expand this partnership to cover broadband content delivery, Yahoo hosted HME apps, etc, then I think you could claim it is Tahiti.
