    The Series 3 can't output 1080P24 so it should only go between 720P and 1080i when both those resolutions are checked. While a Premiere will go between 720P and 1080P24. Well except for content that is 1080P25 and 1080P30. In which case the Premiere will output that as 1080i.

    TiVo Series3's Netflix player won't get any 1080p video at all. Only the adaptive bit rate players do (and I know at least one of them which doesn't, Panasonic's DMP-BDTx10s). 720p is the highest the Series3 gets.

    SO with the S3 you never get 1080i output from a stream even when 720P and 1080i are checked?
    My GF has had my last two S3 boxes the last few years. And with her 1.25Mb/s DSL connection, it only fast enough to get the SD encodes so I was unable to actually check.

    The S3 gets a completely different set of encodes, VC-1 with WMA stereo sound, I think--lots of older devices never had their players updated to use the newer H.264 with separated sound, so they have to keep generating that. They don't generate 1080p encodes for that set.
