A company called Orb Networks announced today a new software product called DVR Everywhere, which enables users to play and program their television recordings for free anywhere in the world from a wide range of networked devices -- including work PCs, WiFi-enabled laptops, and mobile phones on any carrier network.

The software works only with TiVo Series 2 DVRs.

Users can both play and program their television recordings right from their devices' native Web browsers and Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, or 3GP player.

DVR Everywhere is an add-on to the company's free Orb software for Windows XP.

The DVR Everywhere add-on to Orb utilizes the publicly available Orb Add-Ons API, released last summer under the open-source Mozilla Public License. This API empowers developers to make a wide variety of programs and content available from almost all Web-enabled devices through the Orb interface.
