    I sincerely, sincerely doubt any of those features will be on the DIRECTV Tivo.

    Seeing as chances of it coming out in 2011 are now slim to none and it has been pushed back to 1st quarter of 2012 (for now) and Tivo is setting itself up for sale, and its 3 yrs late in general, the chances of it actually coming out have long ago faded.

    Anyone else see the new Tivo receivers? They are basically HR-21's but with the TiVO software on them. Was in the August Tech Video! It will not be MRV compatible though.

    Seems like it has the exact same features as the normal DVR's but with the TiVo menus. (Thumbs up/down, slow mow button, etc)

    Old Ray looked like he was pissed that he was forced to present it.

    *Caveat* the unit I saw 2 months ago was early pre-production,without even a working name, so YMMV. The number I am quoting was from on-screen stats from unit info. Compared to the HR34, this resembles the equipment equivalent of a snooze-bar as far as I am concerned.

    So for everyone who has seen the video is the software UI series 3 or series 2 for the Tivo.

    I'm pretty sure you're joking with me but the reason I care if it is series two or three is because the series three has better graphics quality which is something important to me more than specific features.

    That probably has more to do with the fact that the S3 family has HD output and the S2 family is strictly standard def, rather than it has anything to do with improvement of the UI itself. Since the new box is an HD box, you should expect the UI to look about like it does on an S3 family TiVo DVR.

    All I can say from Edward's video demonstration is the UI appears to look the same as that of the old HR10-250.

    So if true then what series would that make the graphics UI fall under then? ... :whatdidid

    Nothing meaningful. The HR10-250 is also a high def box with a UI formatted for SD. The S3 standalones also fit in this category. I am not sure which chipset is in the HR10-250, but it may be closer to the S2 standalones than the S3s. It is said the chipset in the HR-22 (nee THR-22) is about the same as the chipset in the TiVo HD (a series 3 standalone).

    I think the output resolution has more to do with it than the chipset for a given UI formatting.
