I took the plunge today and bought an S3 from BestBuy today-had them price match CircuitCity for 599 and will submit the rebate for 200 bucks, resulting in a S3 for 399. A bit more expensive than the THD but looks much nicer, has a much nicer remote, and bigger hard drive. This is my very first Tivo. Wish me luck. I was going to waith until the MRV/T2G functionality in November, but couldnt wait. I hope to god I am not going to be disappointed. Can you set a static IP address for the Tivo? Is there any way for it to access my Infrant ReadyNAS's to playback HD transport streams (Mpeg2)?
