New TiVo TCD649180 Series2™ DT 180-hour DVR!!!

The big news over the weekend is that TiVo is going to be rolling out new Series2 hardware soon!!!

I was able to score a picture and the name of these new boxes.

TIVO TCD649180 SERIES2™ DT 180-HOUR DVR
TIVO TCD649080 SERIES2™ DT 80-HOUR DVR



The interesting part about the name is the "DT" part. It seems that it stands for "Dual Tuner", or maybe "Digital Tuner" or both!

Sparse Details:
RECORDS FROM 2 BASIC CABLE CHANNELS OR 1 BASIC CABLE & 1 DIGITAL CABLE CHANNEL
UP TO 180-HR RECORDING CAPACITY
ETHERNET & USB PORTS

This is the post that first leaked the info:
http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb...d.php?t=293095

Darn, no back-lit remote.

Update: The new boxes are due by END OF MARCH!!!
Well that info didn't seem to pan out, oh well.

Retail Price for TCD649180 (180hr): $349.99
Retail Price for TCD649080 (80hr): $249.99

I be thinking "DT" refers to dual tuners...

Or possibly "Dual Tuner", since the specs clearly say it has that. The evidence for a digital tuner is considerably sketchier.

Maybe "DT" stands for Duplicate Thread - and rather late at that...

Not trying to win a contest, but I thought it would be nice to have the picture and such right on top. Sorry if I am stepping on anybody's virtual toes.

Is there a picture of the back of the box available through TiVo's wholesale distribution chain?

Maybe a manual pdf?

I wish there were but this is all I could get my hands on. I agree, that would answer a lot of questions.

Many people are guessing that this new Series2 hardware platform is the same or similar to "TiVo Greater China" box that was seen in Taiwan. Check this link to see the pictures of that box:

... and it still can't record HD.

WTG, TiVo, for coming out with a box that does the same thing your DirecTiVo did in 2001.

Umm, no it dosen't. DirectTivo's can't do anything but record from DirectTV, which does most of us no good. They also can't use Tivotogo, or even group shows into folders AFAIK.

They got grouping ability on the SD units a while back, but the HD units are still stuck on an old version that doesn't do grouping.

That's what the Series 3 units are for. They should be available in about 6 months.

Oh man! Figures! Just after I ordered the 80 hour one. Man it would be cool to be able to record two shows at once. Oh well....

Not sure where the number four came from... not me! I'm more interested in the post where someone referred to the manual or setup guide... where's that?!

Buy.com still has the info...

180HR: http://www.buy.com/retail/product.as...8&loc=111&sp=1
80HR: http://www.buy.com/prod/Tivo_TCD6490...202456903.html

Though if TiVo is monitoring these threads and contacting the vendors, it could vanish...
