Well, I guess it is official. Tivo/DTV in Dec.
No, it's not here until "Early Next Year" according to the article you posted.
Supposedly it will be in the hands of some beta testers in December.
Let's hope. But pardon me if I remain somewhat skeptical.
It really is here !!!! Available today in these markets:
Chicago, Denver, LA, NY, Philly, Phoenix, Sacramento, San Fran, Seattle and Washington.
Shop now at DirecTV.
Meh, no streaming capabilities whatsoever. It's like a 15 year-old tivo on 10 year-old hardware.
So it is...
I added it to my cart just to check the price...
Yeah ... the fact it doesnt come with all of TiVo's new bells & whistles doesnt motivate me to get one.
Special offer for valued customers: Due at checkout .... $99.00
Wow...I'm not a valued customer? I've been with them since 1996.
I've been going for the same time (~12 years) It is possible that I've spent more. I'd post the page, but I don't have enough posts in my account.
Does anybody know if there's any compatibility with Series 2 MRV? I've got five in the house nicely talking to each other and I'd hate to add a lonesome renegade.
This is a big disappointment... Now I guess I have to look at the DirecTv and DishNetwork DVRs to see how they compare and which one is best deal for me.
I can't believe they would not be running latest TiVo software (stripped down version - just like original DirecTv TiVo)... I am sure it has something to do with restrictions put in by DirecTv since they want to sell their own boxes...
No, it was Tivo's decision. They wanted to get an HR10-250 replacement with MPEG4 and HD capability to market as quickly as possible. Unfortunately it still took them nearly three years to finish this product.
It runs from a satellite dish. Why limit the markets? I have been waiting for this for years.
I have a few of the Directv HD DVRs but my wife does not like the interface. I agree that the DTV models are not as responsive to the remote and interface not as nice as Tivo.
like... 9months late for me.
Finally a reason to visit this board again. Why only select markets?
