Thanks for the heads-up on the Series3. I've been thinking about that, but was wondering when it was going to be released (didn't TiVo have a mailing list for that? I signed up, but didn't receive anything).

First thing, though, is to see if I can squeeze a Cablecard out of Comcast...

Heh. It was released on Tuesday, IIRC. It seems like a long time ago. =)

Oh, also, no discount from the $800 price tag with any service plans. You just pay up-front for the box and pay the "I own my equipment fully" price of $12.95/mo.

I figure once they're done squeezing the money out of all the $$$ out of the people who just HAVE to be early adopters, they'll slash the price or offer big rebates/discounts and it'll become just ... expensive, not crazy.

...which makes my plan to wait until early next year to buy it likely a good one? :-)

I've already made one large purchase this year (the laptop), though half of that one I can write off as business expense. Since it's close to the end of the year anyway, the TiVo can wait a little longer.

I suspect so, yes. :)
