The Arris IP805-M DVR, produced for Time Warner Cable

Time Warner Cable customers in New York City and Los Angeles will get a major set-top box upgrade from a next generation DVR allowing six programs to be recorded and once and viewed anywhere in the home.

Arris filed papers with the Federal Communications Commission seeking certification of its new IP805-M set-top, branded with the Time Warner Cable logo.

The new device includes six internal tuners, 1TB of recording space, and a “whole house” platform that will let customers watch recordings from other televisions or portable wireless devices within the home. The new DVR is capable of transcoding traditional QAM channels into IP video.

Time Warner Cable will unveil the new box later this year as part of plans to upgrade service in New York City and Los Angeles under the TWC Maxx project. Customers in other cities may have to wait for the device to become available.

Time Warner has fallen behind many other cable operators, satellite providers and phone companies that offer superior DVR equipment.

Arris’ newest piece of equipment, caught by FierceCable, is just one of the upgrades the company announced last week.

    Verizon FiOS is also launching the same DVR (which, by the way, is based on MOXI technology).
