Customers eagerly await the arrival of TiVo's next-generation Series 3 which brings CableCARD support

We reported earlier this year around CES that TiVo was working on its next generation of boxes called the series 3. What got people excited was that according to TiVo, the new Series 3 will come with support for CableCARD which lets you grab high definition content over digital cable without expensive hardware proprietary to the cable provider.

Engadget is reporting that TiVo is now in beta testing stages of testing the new Series 3. Earlier this year TiVo CEO Mike Ramsey said that customers can expect the new box to show up "early" in 2006. No new date has been set however, but customers are eagerly awaiting. TiVo is currently also working on launching a new service it is dubbing Tahiti, which will connect users on the go with their TiVo content sitting at home. Microsoft is also working on similar services to allow Windows Mobile users to connect to their Media Centers at home.

From the original article:

While Stephen was not able to disclose any information on Series 3 shipping dates (the product is currently believed to be in outside beta testing, which was not denied), he added that they will release it “when it is ready.”

Folks, this is now a game of telephone. You're quoting Engadget who is quoting Thomas Hawk from an article about a lunch he had with me on Monday. I did not say anything to Thomas about the status of the Series3 unit. I cannot confirm or deny whether or not the Series3 is or is not in beta testing.

I did say that, "It will be released when it's ready." But that doesn't give you any kind of date.

I realize folks are hungry for news, but I didn't provide any on Monday. Please don't invent news.
