    I know that the DirecTV Tivo has two tuners...and for good reason since it's pretty hard to switch to "live" TV if the directv receiver is your only source :)

    Anyway, I thought it would be neat if Standalone TiVo folks could have that option (more than one tuner). That way, I could record two shows simultaneously and/or not have to worry if two season passes conflict.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    Sorry about the repeat...I should have paid closer attention to the other posts first and just did a "me too" ;)

    Loving my TiVo....

    Yeah Baby! I had to buy two units to record two things at once. My former Dish Network DVR had two tuners built in. Come on Tivo guys, get with it..... Please!

    The Series3 will be out in the second half of the year with dual tuners.

    My fingers are crossed that it comes out BEFORE then (hopefully in Q1, maybe Q2 - but I doubt it), and that's it at least not *terribly* expensive.

    I, for one, have just about given up on TiVo. I've taken to downloading HD wide-screen content using BitTorrent and playing it on my modded Xbox running XBMC. I'd much rather have TiVo record it for me, though. :cool:
