    I'd just be happy if they put in some of the features they put on the Premiere/S4 that were originally demonstrated on the S3.

    Perfect example the Free Space Indicator was supposed to be on the Series 3 but got pulled. Heck, you can still find images of the Free Space Indicator displayed right on the OLED of the first S3.

    Attached one just for giggles.

    That lack of support is disheartening. To remove a feature they could easily have left in and then use that feature as a selling point on a newer model is almost dishonest. I say almost because at least they removed it before they started selling the units. Still there is 0 reason for them not to have put it back in later updates.

    EDIT: redacting the part about the image as I thought the image was related to the discussed Free Space Indicator but it is as S3-2501 states. My mistake on that account.

    If you're referring to the gauge-like indicator to the right of the displayed show titles on the Tivo in the left side of the image, that's not a free space indicator. It's the output resolution indicator, displayed by pressing a physical button along the S3's front bezel (you can see the button below the indicator on the OLED in the image.)

    Be glad they are not putting out new 'updates' for your Series 3, my 3 Premieres were automatically updated last month, and now all of them have weird things happening, and all of the new features of no interest to me.
