OK, I can't purchase from the Tivo store. Not totally unexpected.
But in reading Megazone's review, he says the software is version 8.0.1a, which is similar in functionality to the 7.2 software.
Last fall series 2 were functional in Canada for the first time. I forget what software version made that happen but I have no idea if the 8.0.1a software allows users to input a postal code instead of a zip code for activation in Canada.
Does anyone know yet if the S3 software allows activation in Canada?
