TiVo Adds YouTube

TiVo's added YouTube support to their Series 3 DVRs. So how does it work?

Short answer, horribly.

The user interface is a bit clunky, but overall works. But when you get to the videos, finally, the audio skips. (On every one I tried.)

And the video quality is horrible, but then again, it's YouTube. I was expecting YouTube quality video and that's what I got. I was also expecting YouTube quality audio, but it managed to fail to deliver on that.

All-in-all, not a very effective way to visit YouTube. My PS3 does a much better job.

Whatever happened to visiting YouTube on your computer?

There is an argument to be made for watching video on your TV, even if it is YouTube quality video. Most people have nicer TVs than they do PC monitors. So that's the "why."

The fact that it doesn't freaking work is the "WTF?!"
