The TiVo "Series3 Lite" must be ready to ship soon, because info on the new $300 unit showed up on a bunch of retailers web pages today, only to be withdrawn. But if you search Google for "TCD652160" and then check the cached results, you can still find a few juicy details about the new HDTV TiVo box.
- Records two HD channels at once
- Has a 160GB hard drive for recording 20 hours of HD or 180 hours of standard programming
- Support for 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i resolutions
- Record Digital Cable (CableCard) or analog (ATSC/NTSC/QAM) sources
- No THX certification
- No OLED display
- Standard TiVo remote
Hopefully today's leak means these boxes will be ready to ship within a matter of days or weeks. At the very least, I think it's a safe bet that we'll see the Serie3 Lite hit the shelves sometime this summer.
