Technology: TiVo Quad-Tuner Premiere Q May Become Available For Retail Purchase

The TiVo Premiere Q DVR, a quad-tuner based product was originally rumored only for cable companies with no plans for a retail release, however new information obtained by Zatz Not Funny via a June 7th FCC filing has us believing that the tuners may find their way to certain retail locations.

According to the filing the company would like to release the Premiere Elite DVR with quad-tuners to retail locations. The filing asks that the FCC waive the "digital cable reception only" requirement and allow for an analog tuner which would increase the cost of each unit by $80 to $100.
