How To Impress Your Friends When A Plasma HDTV Is Not Enough
You bought yourself that beautiful HDTV plasma for Father’s Day. Now what else do you need?
How about a TiVo that works with your HDTV? They just made one that’s also the world’s first THX®-certified, digital video recorder? Dual tuners allow subscribers to record two different shows in HD at the same time, while watching a third pre-recorded show. With the high quality OLED front-panel display, the TiVo Series3 HD box will show what is recording, even when the television is off. The TiVo Series3 HD box enables the user to record up to 32 hours of HD programming, or up to 300 hours of recording capacity in standard definition. With a built-in Ethernet jack and USB ports, the TiVo Series3 HD box also provides advanced connectivity and easy networking.
Here’s a VIDEO TOUR of the TIVO HDTV DIGITAL MEDIA RECORDER:
IT HAS RECEIVED GOOD REVIEWS:
“…these boxes (cable company DVRs) are to TiVo as an oxcart is to a Maserati; their creators, it’s painfully clear, do not share TiVo Inc.’s obsession with polish and elegant simplicity.”
The New York Times, David Pogue 9/21/06
“In addition to TiVo’s TV-recording functionality, the Series3 supports the same impressive and expanding roster of networking functions found on the Series2 boxes. Notably, most of these features have yet to appear on DVRs from rival manufacturers; they’re among the reasons that TiVo is touting the Series3 box as a Digital Media Recorder (DMR) instead of just a DVR.”
CNET, John Falcone 9/12/06
“The TiVo Series3 does an excellent job of recording HD and SD programming.”
“I could see no difference between digital programming viewed live (with or without the TiVo Series3) and the same content as played back from the DVR’s hard drive. Apparently, the Series3’s THX certification was well earned.”
PC Magazine, Robert Heron 9/12/06
