    I understand people saying that TiVo will only work with Uverse if they have Series 2 TiVos, and not Series 3, HD, or Premiere. What about if you are ONLY looking to record standard definition programs, but still want to take advantage of some of the features of the newer TiVo's, will the newer TiVos be able to record SD uverse programing? Or are they not able to do anything with Uverse? Is my ONLY option a Series 2 TiVo if I want to use it with Uverse?

    No, the Series 3, HD, and Premiere will not work with Uverse at all. They are designed to work with standard cable systems, while Uverse is IPTV-based.

    A series 2 is your only choice.

    It is not about SD or HD, it is that the HD models do not work with boxes at all, only direct antenna or cable. To use a box with a TiVo, you needa Series 1 or 2, only in SD, and at a loss of advanced network feaures.
