TiVo Series 3 news: HDMI and external SATA

updated 03:05 pm EDT, Wed August 23, 2006

TiVo Series 3 News

The Series 2 PVR has been TiVo's sole unit for years. Though it gained a second tuner and increased storage, the current recorder has suffered as its most avid users began adopting HDTVs and watching HD programming that the Series 2 simply could not support. TiVo has already made it known that its upcoming Series 3 would support HD signals and CableCARD adapters. Photos released today show that the Series 3 is more than a simple update to the existing model, says HDBeat. Beta-testers of the new model report that it contains two CableCARD tuners for recording two HD streams at once and an HDMI connector to display recorded shows at full quality. Most intriguing is the external SATA connector: TiVo subscribers will be able to add their own external hard drives if the built-in storage runs low. This is an important consideration given the large size of HD video relative to standard programming. See a photo of the back (including explanations of the various ports) after the jump.
