Tivo should have done this a way back. Here is the scoop of the new device: up to 300 hours of recording - presumably HD with external SATA drive. 2 ATSC, 2 NTSC tuners, and 2 CableCard slots, up to 1080i HDMI output, redesigned backlit remote. What sucks with this prototype is it does not have any video inputs other than mentioned tuners. But there are plenty of output such as component, s-video, composite, and HDMI. Reports indicate the Tivo Series 3 HD will ship in mid-2006 but no price is set yet.
