TiVo Series 3 Lite Specs

TiVo's upcoming Series 3 Lite has been confirmed with technical details to match, say testers and others who have spotted information (now pulled) on TiVo's own website. The budget recorder will carry 160GB of storage good for roughly 20 hours of HD versus the 30 of the 250GB premium model. It should also drop the OLED display at the front and use a simpler, Series 2-like remote without a macro mode. Parts may also be cheaper.

The DVR may also have a slight edge over its premium counterpart, the leak notes. Due to the one-year difference, the Lite will include a pair of new dual tuners with better reception of fringe signals. The ability to record two HD shows at once (or to watch during background recording) from CableCARD is still in place from the premium model.

No launch periods have been given besides the wider fall timeframe, but pricing also appears to be fixed, according to reports. The Lite will sell for $299 plus normal subscription fees, undercutting the $799 price of the regular TiVo Series 3.
