TiVo is now selling the Series3 remote as an accessory on the TiVo Store. Actually, we started selling it around Oct. 27, but I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been able to post about it until now. Hey, I’ve been preoccupied designing our next great products!
This remote is essentially the same remote that is shipped with our Series3 boxes (key features of which I outlined here). There is one notable exception, however. The outer peanut ring of the TiVo Glo remote is finished with chrome instead of painted silver. Actually, the ring is finished with what’s sometimes (often?) referred to as black chrome. Black chrome is darker, richer, and not as brightly metallic as “regular” chrome. It gives the remote a much more elegant and sophisticated look IMHO.
I wish I had more high-res pics of the remote, especially from additional angles, but this is presently all I can get my hands on. If I had more time, I’d try to take some myself, but things are so busy right now that I probably won’t be able to get around to it anytime soon.
Anyhow, this is definitely a beautiful, highly featured, ergonomic remote, arguably one of the best remotes available. Don’t forget that the holidays are right around the corner. Since the TiVo Glo remote is compatible with the vast majority of TiVo boxes (see TiVo.com for full details), it would make a great stocking stuffer for your favorite TiVo user!
