    I know the TiVO HD can record two digital channels at once with the use of cableCARD, but can it record to basic cable or analog channels at the same time
    thanks

    Yes, provided that no cablecards, one M-card (TiVoHD only, for now), or two S-cards are installed.

    Huh? That's a little confusing. I have a Tivo HD since the day I installed the M-Card I've been able to record two channels at onces regardless if they're analog or digital.

    I think what was meant was that only the TivoHD supports the M-Card for now.

    The S3 is stuck with supporting only S-Cards (for now). If you use a M-Card in an S3, it will work in single stream mode.

    no, classicsat meant exactly what he said:

    either model of s3 will record two channels simultaneously if:

    1. no cablecards are installed

    or

    2. one M-card (TiVoHD only, for now) is installed

    or

    3. two S-cards are installed

    Is that not a contridiction? It will record Two Channels if No Cablecards or Both Cable Cards are installed?

    (I removed the M Card as that works with the TivoHD but not the Series 3)

    :D

    No, it isn't a contradiction. My Tivo HD does not have any cable cards installed, and it records two channels at once from the analog cable signal, and it does a great job at that.

    If I had two cable cards (or one M-series) in my Tivo HD, then it could also record digital content and/or premium channel content.
