TiVo Series3 Photos Leaked

s3wild.jpgIt’s been rumored that both the Series3 TiVo and the Comcast Motorola TiVo have been in beta testing for months. HD Beat apparently received confirmation in the form of Series3 pictures and info. There’s nothing we haven’t seen before January at CES and June in Vegas. What we really want to know is when will it be released and how much will it cost?

    From the article:

    “the biggest issue was the complexity of the CableCARD setup; big surprise. It took three visits from the local cable company and four cable cards before they were able to get all the premium channels working.”

    Given the level of “customer support” most cable companies provide their customers, I can see this is going to be a huge challenge for TiVo. I can imagine lots of people will give up and return it rather than go through this level of hassle to get it running.

  2. Dave – I gotta say, I’m a bit disappointed you posted this. It’s a clear violation of NDA. I realize you’re simply reporting what ANOTHER media outlet reported. But, I’m still disappointed.
