The new Tivo Series 3 (HD capable) just got a step closer to reality. A Cable Labs certification allows devices to be sold as compliant with all the various applicable cable standards. Basically it’s the step before FCC approval for cable devices.

Personally I just can’t get truely excited about HD until its everywhere. Don’t get me wrong the difference in picture quality is amazing. But paying extra and adding yet another remote to the stack all so I can have 3-10% of my channels HD — na I’ll pass. Text me when the broadcasters catch up to the electronics.
