TiVo is teaming up with Germany's Nero AG. The two companies will launch a software package that converts a Windows-running PC into a TV recorder that operates just like a TiVo DVR.

Users will be able to burn recorded TV shows to a DVD or watch them on a portable device like a PlayStation or an iPod.

The Nero Liquid TiVo PC kits will go on sale October 15 for about $200.
