PVR on the Go


SONICblue Inc. and Intel Corp. are teaming up to give consumers television on
the go.

The two companies are working on a 'ReplayTV Portable Video Player' that will
allow consumers to record TV shows on home-based equipment, then watch the
material anywhere. The portable device sports Intel 'Xscale' processors and is
designed to handle video, audio and photos.

The PVP will contain a 'large capacity' but unspecified amount of hard-drive
space, SONICblue said, and it will support multiple audio and video formats.
Recorded TV content can be transferred directly from ReplayTV set-top boxes to
the PVP player.

The PVP will also connect to PCs so users can transfer and play personal MP3
files and other multimedia content.
