TiVo Mega: A DVR That Stores 3 Years of Video (For $US5,000)

So much TV, so little time to watch it. So why not stockpile, say, three years of the stuff using TiVo's new Mega DVR? You'll just need a spare $US5000 to enjoy its capabilities.

Not so much a set-top-box, more a server, this thing packs a full 24 terabytes of hard-drive space. According to TiVo, that will hold 26,000 hours of continuous standard-definition video (or 4000 episodes of Real Housewives, as the Wall Street Journal points out). And if you're concerned about simultaneous recording, don't be: this thing will record six channels at the same time. You can also stow it anywhere in the house, as it serves video via the Internet to your iOS devices, transcoding on the fly.

Fortunately, the $US5000 price tag includes a lifetime subscription to TiVo's service so you should at least have something to record. It goes on sale in early 2015. [WSJ]
