TiVo Pulls Series 3

TiVo on Wednesday quietly withdrew its Series 3 flagship digital video recorder from its online store, removing its normal entry for the device and listing the DVR as "out of stock" on its separate product page. The shift leaves the lower-end TiVo HD as the only recorder capable of saving HD video and leaves the analog-resolution Series 2 as the only alternative.

Though the company hasn't confirmed its latest move, the apparent cancellation confirms statements in February that a phase-out for the Series 3 would be triggered by a parts shortage which made it more practical to retire the DVR rather than endure the wait for the necessary parts. Under the proposed plan, the company would continue selling the Series 3 only for as long as stock remained

No successor has been revealed or leaked by TiVo, though the set-top box maker is more likely to wait to integrate tru2way or similar features to give users access to bi-directional TV features in HD, such as an interactive program guide or video-on-demand channels. [via Engadget]
