    What relation will the Comcast Tivo have in all this? Just wanted to know before I buy a THD, especially b/c of SV and VOD.

    As long as I can take content from my S3 and transfer it to my computer to put on my iPod, I'm completely happy. Please tell me this means that, cause it sure sounds like it!

    The feature-set of the UI the cable companies have commissioned from TiVo to run on Motorola and SA boxes is controlled by them and I strongly doubt that they'd order TTG (although I could believe they might go for MRV). In any case, doesn't TTG require an Ethernet connection? Do any of the leased cable boxes have one?

    Well, this is good news, although I have been let down on this topic before so I am cautious.

    I own one Series 3, and without these abilities and Mac support, I have held back from getting new S3 or HD's Tivos for my other 4 TV's. I have a bunch of friends in the neighborhood who are the same way.

    I just hope Tivo understands that Mac is a key segment since it is generally folks with higher spends--the customers you WANT to have.

    Deliver these features and Mac compatibility, and I'll order 4 new ones with subscriptions before the holiday.

    Great news !

    (Good thinking to have the retailer demo videos on the Tivo HD boxes already have this information embedded in them. Now if you could just find a way to have more stores actually hook up a unit in demo mode)

    Maybe the software won't work correctly on Vista and we can complain about it. :)

    I bet people will find something else to complain about. Nobody is ever totally satisfied it seems.

    It depends upon how busy your life is. The rest of September, all of October, and an indeterminate number of days into November is just barely over the line of 'far off' to 'not far off' to me. To some people, that time span is more like 'before you know it.

    I don't have anything new to say, but can't resist chiming in with a Thank You to TiVo And TiVoPony for announcing this now.

    I think Santa is bringing two more TiVo HDs to our household for Christmas.

    Does "copy protected" mean "anything from a digital channel with a non-zero CCI value"?

    It will be interesting to see how many of the S3/THD "I'm not buying another box until Tivo enables MRV" crowd actually goes out and gets another box ... :)

    Wow, awesome news, I'm impressed that it's pinned down to a date rather than "soon". I don't think I've seen that before. Hey look, no space after TiVo for the HD! ;)
    Fof answered you two posts down:
    My guess, Mac Support, Copy Protection, (*TiVo sucks, it won't let me transfer ANYTHING, because their CableCo is screwed up), SDV, and Lifetime Subscriptions/ability/inability to transfer/purchase. Did I miss any of the usual suspects? Oh and poor parking habits, seat reclining, and gas station conversationalists.
    Ethernet, or USB and a compatible adapter, and yes, the Moto boxes have both (or at least did last I looked)
    Some will become owners, others will become the

    "I'm not buying another box until Tivo addresses SDV" crowd

    OR the

    "I'm not buying another box until Tivo brings back Lifetime Subscriptions" crowd

    As a proud owner of 7 Tivo units, this is an epic step forward for Tivo, its community (TivoNation) and Cablelabs equipped technology at large!!! As everyone on this board is aware, it has been a long struggle for Tivo to gain support from Cablelabs in order to extend their services into this new frontier, which will be certain to gain further applaud / accolades from its users.

    Additionally, I am now anxious to hear commentary from Tivo's naysayers as the S2/S3 Tivo line will be now have common functionality less HD content of course and have units (Tivo HD) within the financial grasp of virtually everyone!!!

    Again, great news and can't wait for the upgrade!! :D

    I just bought an S3 for my main TV and I am, for the most part, thrilled with it. When this happens I will buy HDs for my other two TVs.

    TiVoPony, is the software that makes this happen run as a tray icon or a Windows Service?

    I'd like a Windows Service because then I can install it on my Windows Home Server box. Maybe even make a WHS add-in...

    THis is great. Now I can get a Tivo HD for the bedroom and off load programs to watch from the living room Tivo HD. I won't need to get 2 more cable cards unless I decide that I need to watch something that is not OTA live in the bedroom.
