Advertisements It's approaching a year since the S3 has been released. In the beginning there were the issues with getting cablecards, missing features (TTG, eSATA, HD search), and a slightly out-of-date software version. And SDV. Since then, the cablecard issues have all settled down (cable companys generally provide the cards even though they make it hard and overcharge). The software version is the same as Series 2, the HD search is there, and eSATA works great (even if it's unsupported). TTG and Multi-room are locked up in disputes with cablelabs. The next generation of Tivo HD is on the horizion. But what about SDV? To me, that has been the big question from day 1. I don't get many of my channels. And the situation is getting worse. My new HD channels don't work, and even some of the ones that I did receive have been move to SDV, and so were lost to me. I can't believe that Tivo would create the S3-lite if they did not have a solution in hand. "We're working on it" no longer seems appropriate posture. Is it a licensing issue? If SA and/or Motorola are being unreasonable, how long do you wait before taking your issues public? If it's the cable co's being unreasonable, wouldn't that be good to say? How would that be different from the TTG issue? Is new hardware in the S3-Lite required? Or does Tivo not have a clue how to solve SDV. That's not credible either. To me it's the elephant in the room. Why not address it?
