Discussion in 'TiVo Series3 HDTV DVRs' started by cekauzl, Jul 26, 2007.
You are confusing the TiVo Series 3 with the new TiVo HD.
Finally, TiVo got something I was willing to pay their asking price for. I purchased mine at the local CC today w/ $40 off > $199 purchase -> $259 + Tax.
I've been an SA8300HD user for > 3yrs now. And a Sony DHG-HDD500 for 1.5yrs (purchased for $250 at the Tweeter closeout)
I've not had any interest in buying an SD DVR, about 95% of my recordings are in HD.
I guess I need to do some reading up now on how to install a Wireless Network Adaptor that's not the TiVo one. Purchased the Linksys WUSB54AG for $35 at a local Fry's store. I just installed it on my laptop and it's working good w/ WEP. Yeah, yeah I know WEP isn't great, but I can pick up 6 networks from my house and 3 are unsecured so I'm not first in line plus my main computers are behind a 2ndary HW Firewall. Oops, I'm digressing anyway, I'm really looking forward to picking up a CableCARD or two tomorrow.
does it operate as a dual tuner on two different analog channels at the same time without any cable cards installed?
what's a CC?
Here's the $40 off $199 coupon (expires 7/31) for Circuit City:
See the "alternate link" for the coupon at that link in the second post.
Two days ago CC and BB's websites showed none in stock in the area (San Jose), and visits to the stores confirmed that. But today I checked and several CC locations showed them in stock.
So I stopped by the Almaden CC today and picked one up off the shelf - they had 2 boxes out (1 after I left).
It took a while, but I've now got everything up and running, including Tivo Desktop and integration with my Harmony 880 remote. Now for the cable cards.
I was a bit surprised to note that without cable cards the Tivo HD doesn't include ANY digital channels in the channel lineup. Even HD locals that I *know* are in the clear on the cable are completely absent, leaving me with an analog-only lineup until the cable cards arrive. Whaddever.
If you scan for channels the digital channels will show up.
Guide data won't match up, but you'll be able to watch the unencrypted ones.
The guy makes simple typos all over the place, pretty much every reply he types.
I'm really concerned about what you think of me.
thanks again, picked up the last one in stock at my local circuit city and paid $259.99!! it's up and running and i'm waiting for time warner to come out on wednesday afternoon to install the cable cards.
Amazon has it now.
Picked up 2 using this coupon. Went to 2 different Circuit Citys to aviod issues. Both up and running awaiting Cablevision on Wednesday. Was able to get HD locals on QAM so I can make it a few days...
Like mentioned before, they are there, just not listed correctly in the guide data, so only manual recordings (by manually setting channel and time) will be possible for them.
I hope that TiVo will be able to correct this and allow some sort of guide<->clearQAM mapping. I would think that now that they have a slightly more mainstream product offering this should be a higher priority as more people will discover this problem.
Says a pre-order for August.
So did TiVo, and they seem to be shipping it. Have to see if Amazon really holds the orders or if they start shipping too.
Bought the only one in stock at my local CC yesterday, 299.99. circuitcity's online listing now has a $41 discount. The store was kind enough to refund the difference. So far it's a loverly thing, guide info for the few qam stations I receive would be nice.
I did a BB.com in-store pickup order on Sunday and picked it up yesterday. Hooked it up last night and have the m-card install scheduled for Friday
