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.
