TiVo will be coming out with an app for your Apple iPad which will let you control your DVR boxes using your iPad. Unlike other remote apps, TiVo app has some added features to it. You can change channels as well as schedule shows you want to record and can go through all the shows using your iPad and even play them.
The app will also support multitouch controls and lets you access more information without interfering with the television. However for the app to work correctly the iPad and the DVR have to be on the same network. Social integration such as twitter and facebook are allowed to share what shows you are watching.
