TiVo.com | TiVo Press Releases

TiVo, the creator of and a leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVRs), announced today the launch of the TiVo® Series2™ DT [tag]DVR[/tag]. Available at retail beginning May 1, the TiVo Series2 DT is the first standalone dual tuner DVR with the award-winning TiVo® service and features. The TiVo Series2 DT DVR is optimized for cable households, allowing you to record two shows at once, so now you never have to miss any of your favorite shows — even if they’re on at the same time. The TiVo Series2 DT DVR also incorporates built-in Ethernet and USB ports, making it easier than ever to add the [tag]TiVo[/tag] box to the home network. [...] The TiVo Series2 DT DVR will join the existing TiVo product line, and is available in an 80-hour model priced at just $99.99, after rebate and service activation. It will also be available at tivo.com bundled with the TiVo service.

Only two problems with the box: No HD tuner, and no DVD burner. Otherwise, it sounds like a nice box.

    If it weren;t for the fact that the Series 3 will be coming out sometime soon, I would probably jump all over this. I got email from TiVo allowing me to purchase it early and if they had a firm idea of when Series 3 would come out, I may have been more tempted to jump on this.

    What’s going to be so great about Series3 to keep one from upgrading?

    I think the Series3 is going to be High Def-capable. That’s why I’m not likely to buy this new TiVo. I’ll be going to a HDTV in the next year, I believe, so I want to remain compatible with that.
