In the S2 days the Tivo was encoding the video from analog to digital, and you could chose the quality of the encode, thus the quality settings.
As of the digital era, even in SD, you're just recording the digital stream from the cableco or OTA, there's no encoding happening anymore.
Sorry, I think you or someone told me that before, but I didn't quite understand, but I do now.
The reason I was asking is a x girl friend of mine has a lifetime Series 3 with a huge hard drive, but she might qualify for the free Premiere or $200 Roamio. But if she did that, then she wouldn't be able to record as much TV without upgrading the hard drive. It would be nice to have 4 tuners though. She kinda quit corresponding, so I am not too hot on finding out if hers' was updated from 11.0 .
