TiVi S3 OLED - Best Looking TiVo Ever

Just my opinion.

The only competitor is the Pro...nice. Got one.

But the OTA and Basic (I own an OTA) and the Bolt look like toys.

The silver look is back...my brand new Samsung 4K set has a silver bezel, and the new Oppo BD 105 is also available in silver...as are many other high-end components. So S3? A winner.

Hey TiVo - how about offering new models with the outside appearance of the S3?

You could always stuff a S5/S6 tivo chassis inside a S3 case of your choice.
Of course the display and led would not light, without some doing, but the case would still look good.

Unfortunately, there is no DVR design that even comes close. I for one, do, in fact, use the OLED to check and see what is being recorded. Sometimes, it may be recording it should not, such as the same episode already recorded, but that was because of a lack of Info data for the DVR to find anything unique about the episode.

Lovely design that old 648 S3. Beautiful and functional.
