TiVo recently announced that they have come out with a new HDTV capable DVR recorder. All yours for a measly $300!! I know some of you are wide-eyed at this cost, but look on the bright side. The previous TiVo HDTV (TiVo Series 3) cost $800, so at least we know that the price has come down quite a bit. It will also be interesting to see how competitors such as the Dish Network TiVo react to this.

The new HDTV TiVo should be out in early August 2007.

This new HDTV TiVo has many similar features to it from the TiVo Series 3. It comes with dual ATSC tuners and CableCARD support. The previous version had quite a few items on it that displeased many a consumer and critics alike. So we can all sat good-bye to the THX certification, the 250 GB hard-drive and the front OLED display.

TiVo decided to lessen the amount of space on the hard-drive for the new HDTV TiVo. What the company found was that many of the customers simply were not going to use 32 hours worth of content. Plus this amount of hard-drive was really helping to drive up the cost of the unite. So TiVo decided to take down the size of the hard-drive to 20 hours. In my opinion you really don’t need to worry about the size of the hard-drive. 20 hours on the new HDTV TiVo is plenty!

Some of the other more noteworthy features on the new HDTV TiVo are the direct downloads from movies and Television services. This should prove to be the gateway for more services to start being offered in an “On-Demand” basis. Other key offerings include the ability for online scheduling of your HDTV TiVo and music and image streaming for your own computer!

If there is one complaint that I still have with the original TiVo is that the $13 a month subscription fee still applies. I find this amazing as TiVo is really trying to compete with companies such as Dish Network who are stealing away TiVo’s customer base. I would have hoped that the level of competition would have done away with this.

In any case, overall I giver the new HDTV TiVo a thumbs up. The pros of the new DVR far outweigh the cons.
