We’ve all been waiting for this one.
TiVo has finally released a 180-hour HD DVR for cable users. Priced at $299, this new box can hold up to 20 hours of HD recordings (up to 180 hours in SD) and it comes with two HD tuners. Like other TiVo boxes, this one includes the great and easy-to-use TiVo interface and functionality including online scheduling. This box supports analog and HDTV signal through an over-the-air antenna or through your cable provider (two CableCARD slots included for decoding from your cable company). Video output is available in 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i.
The bad news is that you’ll still need to buy a TiVo service plan which, depending on length of contract, costs $12.95 to $16.95 per month (or $179 to $299 annually).
