It would, of course, depend on the features.. Such as:
- Ability to record OTA Digital SD & HD
- Ability to record DirecTV, including HD
- Two tuner, view while recording or record two pograms
If it did all that, I would definitely pay $1000. If it had the two tuners, like the DirecTivo, I would probably even go up to $1500.

I would also say, I wouldn't buy anything right
now even if it were available. With dish/direct
merge up in the air, now is not the time to buy

The first you'll see of these will be a STB-Tivo combo; I doubt you'll ever see a separate tivo device for HD recording and absolutely never with component outputs.

How much would you pay for an HD-capable Tivo unit, capable of recording 20 hours of 1080i programming?

I don't think there is question of wheather or not there will be HDHD recorders (Hi Def Hard Disk), it's just a question of when. I mean, eventually all video will be digital (supposedly by 2006, but I really really doubt it). I bet that the 1st HDHD recorder will be released by Sonic Blue (ReplayTV brand), not Tivo, and it will only record OTA. Tivo won't even put a 30-second skip on their decks (while ReplayTV automatically skips all commercials), you expect them to record Hi Def???
