    In the article he says its his own artistic rendering.... :mad:

    Saddly, I don't think it will be the 24 series platform... :nono2:

    Rather content here with my 3x HR24 set up. Only thing missing is the ability to collectively manage series from anywhere in the system. At this point, that would be the killer app.... Kind of a pain going from room to room to set up series.

    That was kinda my point....it looked like a homemade Photoshop job...
    Not me...but I suspect that if anyone did...they are not allowed to talk about it in public, like almost any other beta program.

    Oh, at CES 2010 we were told Summer of 2010, "for sure" but alas we're in the Fall now and an "official" announcement that indicates next year. Woohoo! ;) :rolleyes:

    I hope the fate of Directivo will not be the same as the HDPC-20.

    Judging from what I just read in a newsletter that I subscribe to, you won't see the TiVo until next year, if at all.

    would by far rather have the HDPC-20 project brought back online then the tivo project. More flexiblity with the HDPC-20

    I'd say there is a much better chance at this point the tivo will come out unlike the hdcp, just a matter of when.

    Here is my theory for the delay(s):

    DirecTV is going to be updating/upgrading/overhauling their GUI. They mentioned as much during a call. (possibly in August, but I cannot remember) This could happen anytime between now and during the next year. Perhaps TiVo was waiting to get a taste of that to develop their software alongside it prior to customer beta testing.

    If you're referring to the HMC30 unit that was viewed by some of us at the January Consumer Electronics Show...there's a thread on that.

    Nothing appears to have changed - it was targeted for a late 2010 or early 2011 release.

    It's pretty public now that the HD Tivobox is slated for 1Q 2011 at the soonest now.
