    Do you think we'll hear about S3 today?

    TiVo seems to preferentially release things on Tuesdays.

    I've been assured that they'll be selling it online from TiVo.com and to those of us on the list before it's available at Best Buy. It's available at Best Buy next Sunday.

    So that implies that we'd hear about (and by hear about, I mean pre-order/order) the S3 either today or next Tuesday.

    Letting us pre-order 5 days before it's at Best Buy probably doesn't get it to us faster from TiVo.com than it would be to wait to go to Best Buy...depending on Shipping options, etc.

    So it seems like if all the trumors and assumptions above are valid, then we should hear from TiVo today.

    Right?

    Any thoughts/theories?

    If it was going to be today, I figure we'd have heard already. I'm still guessing next Tuesday (9/12).

    Really? In the past, have they preferred to make releases at 8 am or something?

    Nothing new. Like I said, we know that Best Buy will start selling on next Sunday (that's 9/17). The question is whether we'll hear from TiVo (not Best Buy) today?

    Next Tuesday would be a better bet.

    Well, next Tuesday certainly is plausible but I was thinking today was more likely than next Tuesday IF there were to be any advantage to buying it from TiVo.com/signing up for the mailing list.

    But maybe there really was nothing to that sign-up list except to make ripples online in the forums and blogs.

    9/10 is this coming Sunday. Therefore, 9/17 would be next Sunday.

    Bigger question - who's going to be the the first TiVo Community Forums poster to announce that they have one?

    What would REALLY be hardcore is someone calling up their cable company this week and setting up a date in advance to have their cablecards installed for a product they don't have yet...not that I'd think of doing such a thing. :)

    I might bite the bullet and get one of these the moment they are announced after all. My curiosity is killing me.

    I was actually thinking about doing that, since Charter told me it would take 10 days to get the cards in stock before they could install them.
