ViXS talks about their chip in the TiVo HD – and TiVo Lovers!

The image is a capture from the current homepage. Notice what the top news item is? Yeah, they actually linked to my review. Of all the reviews out there, they linked mine. Damn. I feel all special and stuff.

OK, that’s enough basking. (Seriously, thanks ViXS.)

More interesting is the second item, a press release about the ViXS XCode-2115 used in the TiVo HD. An excerpt:

Dual stream MPEG2 encoding in the TiVo HD is achieved using the ViXS XCode™ 2115 IC which provides a high performance cost effective solution TiVo was looking for when designing the TiVo HD. The ViXS IC provides a number of key benefits which enhance the capabilities of the TiVo HD DVR:

● Single chip with dual channel MPEG2 encoding for efficient physical space utilization of PCB
● High video quality with multiple bitrate options for optimizing disk space utilization
● Excellent filtering capabilities to deal with poor analog broadcast
● Support for custom data required by TiVo PVRs
