TiVo Series 3 Lite Leak

TiVo's hinted-at Series 3 Lite is real and exists in prototype form, according to a series of new leaked shots. The device will be closer in style to earlier TiVo models rather than the Series 3 but should have many of the same HD DVR features; the cost reduction will primarily come through the CableCARD implementation, which will include dual slots for tuning and recording but will limit one of the slots to a one-way card, which will prevent it from using channels that require an interactive stream. The remote will also not be as high-quality and elaborate as for the full Series 3, the source says.

While the look of the recorder is subject to change and the amount of onboard hard disk storage is still unknown, TiVo has mentioned in the past that the tentatively-named Series 3 Lite would release in the fall. Pricing is likely to fall below $300 before factoring in subscription fees, which should remain the same as for other TiVo units. [via Gizmodo]
