Yesterday we told you that HP had launched a new Add-In for Windows Home Server called the HP MediaSmart Expander for TiVo that enables TiVo owners to manage their content from their HP MediaSmart Windows Home Servers.

One of the questions we have been asked a few times since yesterday is how to obtain the add-in if you are a TiVo owner outside of the US. I was surprised as I didn’t think there were that many outside the US, but we have an answer.

Rather than going through the Windows Home Server Console and following the steps, you can download the add-in directly to your computer from here: http://www.hp.com/united-states/consumer/everyday-computing/mediasmartserver/add-ins/HPTivoExpanderAddin.msi

You can then install the add-in “the old fashioned way”. If you want to know how to do that, you can click here: How to install or remove an Add-in for Windows Home Server

Also, it has been confirmed that you can install this add-in on ANY HP MediaSmart EX series Windows Home Server.

  1. I have a TiVo, I just don't know where to start trying to break it into my OEM box. Try to install it from add-ins setting and it tells me that this is not compatible with my version of WHS

    • hmmm, maybe its looking for a particular HP bit of code in the 3.0 update?

      I might try to install it on my HP box and then also on the Acer…

      watch this space….
