    Swanni at TV Predictions says to expect a HD TiVO, probably within the next three months, for $299. The link is here, if this works...

    OK, we'll be nice. Just tell us WHEN we will KNOW the specifics. Some of us have to talk with Santa.

    Other than ego, why would you even bother to post something like that? If you have nothing to say, why not do just that?

    Maybe they will be offering a Series 3 for $299.99

    BUT: Instead of paying $12.99 a Month for a 3 Year Commitment, they will charge $32.99 a Month.

    As for MRV/TTG/TTCB, we have already been told its coming some time be it in 2008, 2009 or somewhere around there :D

    Let me be the first to say, f*$% that.

    How about this, drop all the hoopla crap and just let me record live TV in HD (include ATSC because I'm not going back to cable) to view when I want. No TTG/MRV/TiVoCast/Live365/etc., sh*t I really had no use for when I had a standalone, and let me do it for $79.95 per year or less. Maybe then I'll be interested.

    Because a moderator breaking the rules (one login per person) would be right up there with hinting at (what one would think is, or at least should be if this is true) NDA protected information.

    A major CE retailer was just notified that the new Tivo-lite will be in the store the week of August 5-12. It is currently named "Fusion", but will likely just be called Tivo HD. The specs on it are:

    price: $299
    source: Digital cable, digital antenna
    NO THX certification
    Dual tuner
    Storage: 20 hrs HD, 180 hrs. SD
    No front panel display
    Standard remote

    Support for SP, WL, KidZone, Online scheduling, Digital music player, Digital photo viewer, Home Movie sharing, Amazon Unbox, Univ Swivel Search

    Both the S3 and Lite will have TTG and MRV PRIOR TO THE END OF 2007.


    Based on this it seems the cost savings are:

    1/2 the storage
    No THX
    Digital-only tuners
    No front panel display
    Standard remote (I assume this means the peanut)

    So I won't be able to tune any of the analog cable channels? (Most of my SD cable channels are non-digital.) If I can't record the Sci Fi Channel or other basic programming, it's fairly worthless to me.

    I don't care about THX or the silly display on the front. And I can install a larger hard drive any time I like, so they could sell it with a 10gb drive for all I care.
