Jungo Gateway: An Israeli Version Of TiVO?

An Israeli company has come out with a powerful device that may enable your computer and television to communicate on a whole new level. Called Gateway, this technology may make it easier for cyber geeks and normal people alike to record their favorite shows for later viewing without interrupting their lives.

(Israel 21st Century) The modern home is now part of the digital revolution. TVs, computers, internet, telephone, video recorders, DVD players, printers, fax machines, copiers, even your washing machine, dishwasher, cooker and microwave. They all speak the same digital language, but they don't speak to each other.

Make way for the 'gateway' - a slim-line box that not only allows all the computers in your home to talk to each other and operate cooperatively, but also provides a sophisticated software hub for extending and refining all sorts of Internet and TV services. [...]

Now use your computer to browse the gateway's Electronic Program Guide (EPG) and decide what you want to record - it will be stored in that USB storage facility. You are used to planning ahead with your video but what about the episode you missed last week, last month? No problem, Jungo's gateway software will find which of those millions of viewers did record it and then download it onto your system. You are looking at the future and it is only just around the corner.

This device seems like a cross between TiVO and KaZaa (except that this one may be legal). It will be interesting to see whether or not Jungo breaks into the American market, as they could give TiVO a good run for their money.
