TiVo Mega


TiVo's new Mega DVR is so insane that it almost feels like an April Fools joke you'd find on a tech blogger's wishlist. The Mega will be TiVo's biggest and baddest DVR with six tuners and a massive 24 Terabyte RAID that is more than enough space to record up to three years of television.

Broken down, that is 26,000 hours of SD content and 4,000 hours of HD content. The Mega can act as a video server for your whole home and recording and streaming can be done via a smartphone or tablet. It will also have universal search across cable and of course your favorite video streaming apps.

Bang & Olufsen BeoVision Avant


Bang & Olufsen's first 4K TV isn't simply a screen with a higher resolution display. The company made sure the Avant was their ultimate TV. B&O's new set features a hidden eight-driver 7.1 surround sound speaker panel that deploys when you turn on the TV, a Chromatic Room Adaptation feature that automatically adjusts the display to the room's color tones, and anti-reflective coatings help reduce reflections by 98%. Just a few of the innovative features that B&O hopes will set the standard for what should be in a TV of the future.

$7,995, Bang & Olufsen
