TiVo Series 3 HD DVR in beta?

If you're a TiVo fan looking for more info about the HD-capable Series 3 DVR the company showed off at CES, we've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that it's apparently undergoing a private beta, at least according to a non-denial from TiVo Director of Service Operations E. Stephen Mack. The bad news? There's still no news on a ship date. Mack's answer when asked by Thomas Hawk: a cryptic "when it's ready." We hope it's ready soon; if not, fans may begin jumping ship to other HD options, no matter how good TiVo's offering sounds.
