lrhorer: I have no idea if you're talking about modifying your Series3 or what but a stock model Series3 or HD cannot transfer content marked 0x02, just like a Premiere. It sounds like you're talking about some hack that was possible with the S3/HD and not possible with the Premiere. Great. A fantastic solution for .01% of TiVo users. I'm talking about the rest of us who take the thing out of the box, plug it in, and use it. In that case, the S3/HD and Premiere are identical to how they handle 0x02 protected content.
