Tivo HD, wow, incredible

25 07 2007

Tivo has just announced its new Tivo HD box. This is the little brother to the Tivo Series 3.

The Series 3:

  • World’s only Digital Media Recorder with THX®-certification
  • Control live HDTV and record 2 digital cable shows at once*
  • 300 hours of standard recording time or up to 32 in HD
  • NEW backlit, programmable TiVo® remote, easy to configure to your TV
  • cost $799

Tivo HD

  • Control live HDTV and record 2 digital cable shows at once*
  • 180 hours of standard recording time or up to 20 in HD
  • ordinary old style Tivo remote
  • cost $299

Both units support up to 2 cablecards to allow for the recording of two shows at once. The units also support over the air (OTA) HDTV via an antenna.

I love the price point of the Tivo HD and would jump on it except that a subscription is still required. I hate the idea of paying an additional $100 a year to subscribe to Tivo.

For now I’m going to continue playing with my Microsoft Media Center Edition box.
