Cox Communications launches Trio guide and whole home DVR

Cox outs whole home DVR

By: Shane McGlaun from Nov 22, 2010 @ 14:00 CST

If you live in an area of the US, where you get cable from Cox Communications the company has announced a new service that will get your attention quickly. The new service wraps a new Trio program guide into a package with a DVR system that works for your entire home. That means you can record a program on any DVR in your home and then play it back on any TV in the house.


The part I like the best is that the new service has a bookmarking option. That means you can start watching a program in the living room and then bookmark it to pick up right where you left off in the bedroom. The DVRs used in the system have 500GB of storage.

That is enough storage space for up to 250 hours of video recording. The new package also comes with new HD channels for subscribers. The program guide lets the user schedule recordings for every TV in the home from one guide. The new HD channels include SWRV, DIY, the Cooking Channel, and the HUB among the 18 new stations total.
