TiVo Series 3 Official

After months of anticipation and uncertainty, TiVo has officially released its Series 3 personal video recorder to the market, confirming earlier reports on new features while adding new details. The new PVR is designed for HDTV recording with two CableCARD 1.0 slots that can record two digital signals at once (analog cable is also supported). TiVo has also expanded the Series 3's capacity to 300 hours of standard-definition programming, or 32 hours at HDTV quality. A similarly welcome addition is the inclusion of Internet functions as a basic feature; while Series 2 models could take advantage of these as well, they could only be unlocked by a separate fee. TiVo Series 3 owners can immediately gain access to music, photos, and podcasts on their home computers as well as program their set remotely from the TiVo website. Curiously, however, the external SATA port in the system is disabled until a future software update. Previous launch details have proven to be accurate. The new TiVo model carries a top-tier price of $799 without a subscription - well above Series 2 models - but is available today through the TiVo website and in retail stores as of next week.
