When will the Stand Alone Cable Card HD TiVo be available?

I know this has been asked here a lot. I did search high and low for any info on this. All I could come up with was that the Stand Alone HD TiVo with cable card will be announced at CES this year in January. Does anyone know if this will support the cable card 2.0 spec? This will enable things like PPV and On Demand. It is not a hugh deal to me if it does not though. I can not seem to find much info on this at all. I did find a picture of what it will look like (hope links are allowed) here.

I for one and fed up with DirecTV. I only have DirecTV for TiVo. I only have the HR10-250 because I wanted TiVo and HD in one box. In fact I have two. I am tired of paying high prices to buy the equipment I want and having to sign a long term contract too boot. Not to mention getting a TiVo box that never gets updates. I loose my signal in rain storms and when it snows. Not to mention that I have to have an OTA antenna on my roof just for HD locals.

I know HD locals are coming via DirecTV, but not for a while for me. And I need new equipment and a new dish to get them.

My local cable provider is Adelphia and their DVR is crap.

Adelphia just got bought by Comcast here.

I know Comcast is in bed with TiVo now. I know that they are working on a software upgrade for the Comcast DVR that makes it run TiVo software.

I for one can not wait until either this Comcast box is out or the cable card TiVo with HD support is out.

I will be following TiVo and not going with the new DirecTV HD box (NDS).

Okay, I am done complaining now...

I just wanted to see if anyone has any more info on the cable card TiVo or the Comcast software update...
