Earlier this summer, we got wind of TiVo's plans to release its Premiere Elite DVR
-- a retail version of the company's quad-tuner Premiere Q
, which is only available directly through service providers. We knew to expect four tuners on the Elite as well, letting you record content from up to four channels at once. A leaked FCC document sheds a bit more light on the Elite, revealing two terabytes of recording capacity (for a whopping 300 hours of HD), digital cable compatibility (read: no OTA), and support for Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA), for networking with other MoCA-enabled devices in your home. Still missing, however, are a price tag and release date, though Zatz Not Funny
predicts pricing to land in the $600-800 range, with a release this fall. $499 seems to be more on target, though, considering the Premiere XL's
$299 price tag -- but even at $500, you better really love television if you're gunning to spend that much on a DVR.
