    I've been signed up for beta for about 10 years now. Tested devices since 2000. Been a d* customer since 1994, but didn't hear anything about this beta. Wonder if moving was an issue? Did people get mail updates, or emails to historical email addresses?

    Hmmm, might just have to drive down to Alviso and knock on the door.

    was it because I shorted the stock at 18$?

    Well I know he was a Greek God of the Sea with a 3 pronged trident.

    I say TiVo is working on a sports water drink with 3 flavors.

    More seems to imply you have some info? I assume none that can be shared.

    I would say if the names actually mean anything which I don't think they do. I would say it is one of two things. It is a beta test for Seachange. Hence Poseidon, or if you go with the trident=3 it could be the whole home unit for Suddenlink that can stream up to 3 TiVo clients.

    Just make sure your profile is kept up to date on the field trials page.

    http://www.tivo.com/beta if you haven't signed up or
    https://fieldtrials.tivo.com/login.html if you have.

    In the left hand column you will have the option to manage platforms which tells them which TiVo(s) and PCs you have that you would be willing to test with.

    Under that you have the various profile options.

    You're not kidding. Got this today from TivoBeta:
    "Thanks for your interest in the DirecTV/TiVo DVR. However, it has been delayed again and hope to be released in 2011."

    No joy. :eek:

    From the sound of the Nomad you will need an additional piece of hardware, which is a fail to me when I can do it without that on TiVo.

    No Big Deal to me now that I have right now 7 Directv DVRs (Owned) with 13,000 Gigabytes of Storage Capacity along with Whole Home DVR Service I am stoked but with the addition of Nomad where I can watch my Recordings on my Droid or my PC I am really a Happy Camper!!!

    I just got tired of waiting for this Directv TIVO Vaporware which never seems to be able to be completed. AMAZING!!!

    We were told it would probably be out last year in time for 2010 CES but that never happened and their Booth at the show was a joke.

    I just began life as a full-time RV'er, and for the last two years I've been planning on getting the new HD Directivo for my coach. If this really seems true, that they're "hoping" to release it in 2011, then I may have to move to Dish; can't wait that long. Is this prediction really realistic, or not? I'm willing to wait a few months, but not a year.

    thanks-

    How would moving to Dish help you get a TiVo? Why not just get an HR24 now?

    That's DTV's HD DVR, right? I just figure that if I can't have the Tivo interface,then Dish's is probably the best available. Plus, the Dish hardware is, I believe, more current and less-soon to be obsolete than DTV's current box.

    And, again, what about the hopefully-in-2011 report? Does it seem accurate?

    Really? Do your homework before jumping to Dish.

    The coming unit in question will have an interface based on the HR10-250.

    DirecTV's current box just came out 6 months ago. Why do you think dish is more current?
