Nothing yet. So far none of the BB clerks even know what I am talking about. Have done extensive web searches with nothing!

Of course not, what surprises me is that no one else knows a single thing about the actual release of the machine. Maybe the Tosh 400 being $99 is a sign that it will be replaced very very soon??

The most specific information I have been able to get is from Vann's. The person that I talked to there said that they expect them "mid September". I just called again and got the same answer so that's the best info I have been able to get so far.

nothing yet on the new models so I will just bump the thread with this thought - the BB clerks I have talked to recently did not even know what a USB to ethernet adapter is or where on the shelf I could find it. These have been out for what 2 years now ?

I guess it's not possible to "pre-order" one of these before the end of the month to get the rebate...?

Someone else would have to confirm it but I believe the TiVo has to be activated by September 30th. Current best estimates are a middle of the month release so we should be ok.....unless they get bumped.

So we have to "activate" by Halloween...but the purchase receipt has to be dated no later than the last day of September to get the rebate?

How do I get an RS-TX20 before the $100. Tivo rebate runs out?
Also, I have a Series 1 with Lifetime Service. Can I transfer this to my new unit and still get the $100. rebate from Tivo? Does the Tivo rebate run out Sept. 30?

Hope the RS-TX20 has the 30 sec. skip hack.
I could just buy a SD-H400. Would that be a mistake?

Any comments are appreciated!

Alan

I think there is a thread somewhere about the pros and cons of the 400. Do a search and it should come up.

Note Update for Pioneer DVR810H-S Quite Likely

I've been reading these boards since I got my first Tivo machine about a month ago, a Pioneer 810H-S (the combination unit with Tivo and a DVD burner). I bought it before I even knew of this site's existence.

After reading for awhile, I know there's been much talk about the PQ, the (in my opinion) quick and minor pixelation that occurs every so often when recording on anything but the highest level. I honestly don't think it would have bothered me as much had I not read so many negative reviews here. Let me just say that I love this piece of equipment.

I know there's been talk about if anything was going to be done about th PQ problem. I went to pioneer's site where I first learned about the 810H-S and emailed them, HARDLY expecting a reply...

but much to my delight, PIONEER REPLIED. I included the fact that this "problem" was being discussed at these boards.

Here are their exact words:

"Thank you for contacting Pioneer Electronics, Inc.

Yes we are aware this is an issue for some customers and we are currently working on an upgrade.

Thank You,
PIONEER"

I don't know if anyone else here had heard from them. I'm very excited that they're working on this, and I thought you all would be too.

I'm not sure if you have viewed the thread listed in my sig, BUT....

I believe that it contains a couple of posts that make reference to Pioneer stating that they "working on the problem". If I remember correctly, I think these posts were authored quite a while ago.

I too hope that a fix is on the way, but I won't hold my breath (although some might wish I would)

If a fix ever materializes, the only way I will find out about it is through this board. I have stopped using my Pioneer.

Does the DVR810H-S have a 30-sec. skip hack?
What about the SD-H400? Can you program the 30-sec. skip on it?
I have a Series 1 Tivo (had it since Dec. '01), and 30 sec. skip is convienient.

Thanks,
Alan

No.

We don't know yet whether the new Toshiba DVD recorders will offer the 30-sec skip.

Interesting...I had not expected a cosmetic difference between the two models. I must say I like the RS-TX60 better. Hard to say if it will be worth the extra $100 though.

Anyone notice this on the spec sheet...

WMA & MP3 Playback

I wonder if WMA playback includes HMO? Or only when they're on a disk?

also ther was this blurb

>>Front Panel A/V & IEEE1394DV Inputs - There are composite audio
& video inputs, as well as RCA L/R inputs on the front panel of the
unit for easy camcorder dubbing. Additionally, an IEEE1394
'Firewire' jack is also available on the front panel for interfacing
compatible digital video camcorders. Provides recognition
of the device and on-screen menu controls to easily direct the
"downloading" process.



does that mean to Hard Drive via TiVo interface or to the DVD recorder ?
from what I know of TiVos I suspect it is only to the DVD recorder. They should make that a lot clearer one way or the other though.

I wonder when Best Buy will get them....I've got a $50 gift card I would like to use for it. Plus I like the easy returns associated with local stores.

I also like to buy locally. For the record, I have purchased from ABT in the past, and they are top-notch!

The Pioneer makes you record the camcorder input (analog only) to the hard drive first, then put it onto a DVD. So unless something changes it's likely that's how the Toshiba will work as well. (for both analog and DV)

but can you see the Camcorder recording on the Hard drive, more to the point - play back the camcorder recording from the HARD DRIVE via TiVo interface ?
