More Details:

The company is pushing ahead with some enhancements to its ReplayTV products and in March will release a new software version that will improve networking between multiple units in the same home and activate a USB port with support for peripherals for a wireless connection to the Internet.
By the end of the second quarter, the SonicBlue plans to enable the ReplayTV to play back music stored on a PC through a home network. It will also allow MP3 digital music files to be stored on its hard drive rather than on a computer.

During the third quarter, company representatives said, SonicBlue will introduce receivers for under $100 that will allow programs recorded on a ReplayTV unit to be played back on other TVs in the home that are not connected to a digital video recorder. It also plans to redesign its user interface.

SonicBlue's Rio line of digital music players will also get an update this summer. One line of products, code-named "Project Slate," will offer small MP3 players, no bigger than the palm of a hand, with 1.5 gigabytes of storage and high-speed PC connections for $349 or less.

A line of "Pro" MP3 players will also offer high-speed connections in a palm-sized form factor, but with a 20 gigabyte hard drive and the ability to connect to a network.
