    Does the S3 do 5.1 audio over HDMI? Is it identical to using the optical out? Thanks!

    Yes, and yes.

    Edit: However, if you're thinking of multichannel PCM, the TiVo doesn't do that. It only does Dolby Digital out or stereo PCM - if you want 5.1 channel surround, you have to use Dolby Digital.
