    Yea, I did. Looks like a HR21 on top of an AM21, with a tivo logo. Lets see some menu and guide shots, with time/date displayed...

    I agree it doesn't look like much. I was just saying that since I thought the same thing when I saw the tiny pic in case you didn't click on it for the full size.

    The logo looks like it might be a sticker also.

    Looks legit as the case under the sticker appears to be the same as outside the sticker. But since no one doubts it exists, the point eludes me. I want to see the menu, guide (hd or sd?), and some other decent screen shots.

    If it were the HR10-250 with multiple-room viewing/whole house functionality, I'm pretty sure I'd be happy with that.

    Please remind me what other great features I'd lose compared to the HR2x series besides the small picture while navigating the menus. Perhaps the closed caption shortcut, but nothing critical comes to mind...

    It doesn't look like the new TiVo is going to have MRV. :(

    Hmm...

    In that pic, the last res light reads "1080i/p"

    When did they slip that in there? :lol:

    Sign me up, I don't care what it does and doesn't do, I wanna give it a try! :)

    Looks like some disappointment ahead....that, of course, would be a deal killer for many.
    Guess some folks have never heard of Photoshop. ;):D

    I dunno man, I might be starting to believe... remember that a member here had an H24-200 way before they were even in field trial? It's possible...

    Just toyin' with ya. :D;)

    The new HD Tivobox is real, and likely a 2Q 2011 unveiling (as others have posted before). There were plenty of posts of field trials being initiated several months ago already...so I would not be surprised to see one in the months ahead. The photo actually shows an HR22 shell of sorts, as previously anticipated by a few here.

    What might be a surprise (to some) will be what is and/or what isn't contained within the new unit.

    Yup. Which is shame, it could be so much more.

    First of all that photo looks very fake to me. The TiVo logo is way too bright and the focus is too clear compared to the rest of the photo.

    I don't know, I think that CES will be the telling moment for the DIRECTV TiVo. If it's not there, I'm going to bet it's not coming.
