I picked this up from ZatzNotFunny. The FCC has posted a letter received from TiVo which includes some Series3 info. (PDF) There is also mention of TiVo’s efforts to encourage the FCC to require cable companies to provide equal access for CableCARD devices as they look at solutions such as Switched Digital Video. An excerpt from TiVo’s letter to cable cards:
Dear Cable Operator,
We wanted to take this opportunity to inform you that TiVo Inc. has self-verified its TiVo® Series3™ HD Digital Video Recorder product (Model No. TCD648250B) pursuant to applicable FCC regulations. The TiVo Series3 HD DVR product supports up to two CableCARD™ decoders. This product acts as two independent single stream UDCP CableCARD hosts within one set top box. It can also be configured to operate as a single CableCARD device. You should have received separate notification from CableLabs about this product as well.
This product is currently being tested by a small number of consumers in cable markets across the country, and will be generally available in retail stores soon. Thus, we wanted to ensure that you are aware of this product in time to make any necessary preparations to support customers who request two CableCARD decoders for their TiVo Series3 HD DVR.
