The TiVo TCD652160 is the second HD DVR released by TiVo in 2007, and is also called the "TiVo HD DVR". Compared to the first Series3 HD box, the CableCARD slots have been moved to the front, has a smaller hard drive at 160 GB rather than 250 GB, and has several fewer high-end features. However, these changes have resulted in a much more affordable DVR. It can record 20 hours in HD and 180 hours in SD from analog cable, digital cable or analog antenna, and also has the ability to pause and rewind live TV.  A dual tuner allows you to record two shows at once in HD.  Some useful TiVo features include "Season Pass" to record every episode in a series, advanced searches by topic, title, actor or director, "WishList" which records shows based on your favorite actor, director or topic and "TiVo Suggestions" which will suggest new shows based on how you vote to shows you have already watched. The TiVo Music Player and TiVo Digital Photo Viewer lets you enjoy your MP3 and photo collection off of your computer through your home entertainment system.
