DirecTV HD DVR Plus Partners with Intel Viiv

In an effort to make the Intel Viiv platform useful, Intel has
partnered with DirecTV to allow the recently released HD DVR stream
video and audio from Intel Viiv systems with the Digital Media Server

Intel leased a huge space at CES back in January showcasing their Viiv technology. While the Geeks thought Viiv was "kinda cool", we were drooling over the dual core laptops.

DirecTV's HD DVR could definitely use an ability to grab digital
media from other sources around your house. Not based on TiVo, these
units have yet to be hacked and made more useful... yet.
