So where is the Series 3? I've heard all kinds of rumors of a release date. Doesn anybody have any factually supported estimate from Tivo when the Series 3 might surface?

Tivo has made no announcements, though at CES they evidently were telling people "later this year."

That's about all we've got.

Seeing as they just last week passed Cablelabs certification (for the cablecard stuff), they can probably start ramping up production this summer. But everything I've heard is second half of the year. I'd guess most likely either back to school (September) or Thanksgiving/Christmas market.

They've extended the deadline for lifetime subscriptions for another couple of days, so it certainly won't appear until the Lifetime option goes away.

(There's also supposed to be a TCD649 dual-cableTV tuner model out "very soon" as well, but seems like a stop-gap product to me.)
