>> I'm John Falcone, senior editor at CNET.com and it is that TiVo HD. The main difference is between the TiVo HD in the series 3 is that it has the old non-deluxe TiVo remote. There is a slightly different front panel design that doesn't have a nice OLED display. And it also has a smaller hard drive that can store only about 20 hours of HD video. You can access the Amazon unboxed video download service so you can download TV shows and movies straight to your TiVo here, that might not otherwise available. You can also access something called TiVo cast which has a lot of other special online content that has access to audio pod cast, Internet radio and several Yahoo functions, such as photos, whether and traffic. It let you stream MP3s and digital photos, it has two cable tuners and dual over the air tuners as well, so you can record any two standard or high definition streams at any one time, while you are playing back a third pre-recorded program. Additionally it can output at all the standard and HD resolutions, via its component and HDMI output. You can't access any interactive cable company features such as pay-per-view or video on demand. This does require a monthly fee that you have to pay to TiVo. While we did really like the interface that TiVo, it is somewhat slow on the draw, this new lower-priced TiVo HD is probably the best and most affordable TiVo offering that we have seen in a long time. I'm John Falcone for CNET and this is the TiVo HD DVR.
