In a fresh press release from NVIDIA, they let us know of their PureVideo Decoder (implemented on the 6 series of graphics cards) to have been recently approved by "TiVo Inc." for content playback using the "TiVoToGo" feature.
New this year, the TiVoToGo feature allows TiVo® subscribers to transfer recorded television programs from their TiVo Series2 DVR to their PC for viewing anywhere, anytime. Watching a program on a PC that has been recorded on a TiVo DVR requires the use of an MPEG-2 decoder, such as the NVIDIA PureVideo Decoder which employs sophisticated algorithms to decode and enhance television content.
Further details within the full PR over at NVIDIA's press room.
The NVIDIA PureVideo Decoder combines the high quality DVD and MPEG-playback with rich Dolby® Digital surround sound. Also featuring hardware-accelerated video on all Microsoft® DirectX®-compatible graphics processors, the NVIDIA PureVideo Decoder delivers unmatched color fidelity and smooth DVD, video, and TV viewing.
The NVIDIA PureVideo Decoder is the best way to experience NVIDIA PureVideo technology-a combination of hardware and software technologies that raise the video capabilities of today's desktop and notebook PCs. PureVideo on a NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series GPU enables such features as spatial temporal de-interlacing, inverse telecine, and bad edit correction-all of which eliminate jaggies and blurriness for a sharp picture, even in scenes with a lot of motion.

I have just had a chance to take a walk around the QuakeCon floor this morning at the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine, Texas and noticed a company called Radio ITG broadcasting live video and radio coverage from QuakeCon - is it really the start of e-sports going mainstream? How long before ESPN get in on the act? Not long I imagine!

I downloaded this video from our friends over at nV News only a couple minutes ago. Remember when the NV30 reviews were released and only hours later all the dust buster type pictures emerged on the web? Well Steve Sims and company from nVidia have posted a three minute video which basically owns themselves - you'll see when you watch it.
I have mirrored the 4.6mb file on our servers for you all, grab it here!
First up I noticed talk of Doom 4 videos over at Warp2Search. Before you get too excited, users commented these videos are merely a mod for Quake3 called Q4Gladiators. Nevertheless, the faked Doom 4 videos and wallpaper are pretty cool and worth a look.
There are more videos than what is listed on the earthlink page, just follow one of the directories from the earthlink downloads and you end up hereMore information @ Warp2Search
Intervideo has released WinDVD Platinum. It includes all the great features included in previous versions with the addition of DivX playback, Dolby Virtual Speaker which uses advanced algorithms to replicate 5.1 surround sound over two single speakers and more, if the latter was not enough for you.
WinDVD Platinum is InterVideo's latest version of WinDVD which is a simple-to-use DVD player that combines all the features of a standard consumer DVD player and offers much more. WinDVD Platinum is the ultimate DVD player with advanced audio and video functions, not found anywhere else.More information @ Intervideo
Our friends over at Warp2Search have a link to Japanese Watch Impress with three MPEG videos show casing nVidia's new GeForce FX. They appear to be camcorder rips from an nVidia press conference of some sort with somebody explaining how each piece of footage is achieved through the new technology of shaders. The quality is quite good, so ensure you make time to download these for the archive.

Words cannot describe what I am thinking right now... stunned, I guess could be one of them. Anyway, I followed a link from our friends over at Warp2Search to the nVidia website (hmmm, that's a new one for today - heh) which shows demos and such of its new GeForce FX in action. You'll also find information on up and coming DX9 games supporting the GeForce FX and a couple videos which we had already known about for the past few days.
Power and performance, the two elements every gamer craves, are the heart and soul of the GeForce FX. Powered by pure adrenaline and engineered with a passion for perfection, the GeForce FX delivers cinematic effects beyond imagination. Its CineFX engine produces gaming effects on par with the hottest motion pictures. Combined with the industry's first true 128-bit studio-quality color processing technology, 3D worlds and characters are more real than anything that's come before.More information @ nVidia GeForce FX Homepage
Yes, this is for real!
This dose should keep some of you busy for a while and as I've got to go and see a doctor here it is.
