The Series has landed!

Today the non-disclosure embargo for the Series3 TiVo lifts, and sites everywhere are starting to disclose the details.  Gizmodo has a few images and videos up already, sporting the new OLED front display and a sleek new look.

The biggest draw to the Series3 is, of course, the CableCARD support.  The new Series3 supports two CableCARD 1.0 adaptors capable of decrypting a single signal per card.  Multi-stream support will be available later this year.

CNET also was able to get a shot at the new Series3, which particularly emphasized on the networking capabilities of the Series3.  All reviews so far have been disappointed with the lack of TiVo2Go, a service that used to allow users to rip content from the TiVo to a PC.  Also absent from the Series3 is the ability to use external hard drives, although an e-SATA connector is present for future support.

Engadget reports "Units go on sale today at TiVo.com and should be showing up within the next week or so at Best Buy, Circuit City, Fry's, and Ultimate Electronics."  However, at the time of publication the TiVo.com links had not been enabled yet.  CircuitCity has its buy page up already.

The Series3 will still come with the $800 price tag as reported earlier.  Additionally, you'll still need to pay a monthly fee for the TiVo services.

I was looking at the connections and saw nothing for HDMI
is that not the best connectiong for HD content and if so why pay $800 to use composit or svideo. regular cable boxes have that. What a waste. I use comcraps dualtuner dvr with my hdtv and it has hdmi, external sata(does not work yet)usb1.1 and 2.0, ethernet(does not work),firewire (connects to my computer) and what seems to be a 200gig hdd i paynothing just for the service. TIVO is trying to make a buck from it's name as I still call my comcast dvr tivo but I will never really buy one.

HDMI is between the Cablecard slots and the USB ports.
