    My guess is still August 28th. It's the last Monday of the 3rd quarter and my birthday, so it seems like a perfect day! Plus they announced the S2DT on the last Monday of 1st quarter, so it would fit the pattern. :)

    Who said anything about record shows off the internet ?
    :rolleyes: :confused:



    I've got a DIRECTV/TiVo and pay a $4.99/month fee. They call it a DVR fee. I don't have any need to play music from my PC thru my the TiVo, look at pictures from my PC on my TV via the TiVo, or transfer shows from my recorder to the PC. I could if I wanted to hack the box.

    Of 2006, right?

    :D

    I'm going with November 13th and will throw my $1.00 in the virtual pot.

    Pony, you ain't allowed in the pool... Unless of course you want to make a few bucks and throw out your "guess" :p

    I'll contribute if you can get Pony to define "second half" a bit more precisely than Dan did ... :)

    In marketing terms, it's called building anticipation.

    Makes you wonder though how many sales of the DT units are being held up pending the announcement/pricing of the Series 3.

    That's taunting, isn't it?

    Is he taunting us?

    I think that he is.

    I'm visualizing Pony as the Frenchman in Python's Holy Grail.

    I don't want to believe the TiVo marketing guys would miss the start of the fall season. I'm sure I'm not alone in planning to have my new HD TV and HD PVR all set up and running before September.

    If true, very disappointing that it won't be available before the Fall TV season.

    But slightly encouraging in that means the Series 3 should be available at retail for Black Friday.

    However, October is indeed "second half" :(

    Scheduled means HALF A YEAAAR? Thats NOT scheduled!

    Scheduled means a DATE announced publicly, not a bunch of hearsay on a internet forum...
