TiVo.com has begun selling the Series3 remote as a $49.99 accessory. Not only does the remote control the S3, most Series2 units are supported as well. One slight difference over the bundled S3 unit: instead of a silver perimeter, this sports a chrome rim.
TiVo’s remote control designer points out enhancements versus the standard Series2 model:
- Fully backlit keys.
- Learning capability.
- Metal domed keys provide crisp, tactile feedback.
- Improved ergonomics and feel.
- Bigger navigation pad with the Select key in the center.
- Glossy, high-end look.
