Yahoo! recently acquired a company called Meedio, and they have wasted no time rebranding Meedio's PVR technology as "Yahoo Go TV". The technology is available now as a free download from Yahoo!.

From the Yahoo! Go TV web site:

" Now you can take Yahoo! off your computer and put it in your living room for everyone to see. View photos, search for video clips and watch movie trailers on your TV. Plus, your own digital video recorder (DVR) lets you record and watch your favorite shows anytime for free. Be part of the Yahoo! Go for TV Beta! " (Source:

Yahoo! Go TV: Requirements

Using Go TV requires the following: a Windows XP® operating system, a 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB RAM, 40 MB free disk space for installation, 20 GB additional disk space for TV recordings, a high-speed Internet connection of at least 1.5Mbps recommended, a TV with video and audio input connections, cables to connect your PC and TV, and, optionally, a TV tuner card and remote control (required to enable the DVR functionality).

All that's needed after that is to connect the cables, download the software, and if desired, set up the DVR. Yahoo! Go TV isn't just about getting TV on your computer -- it also works the other way, too. Go TV brings Yahoo! to your television so that you can view photos, search for video clips and watch movie trailers on your TV.

Pretty cool stuff!
