I love my Series2... but I plan to buy an HD TiVo soon... it's a matter of which model. I've read about macroblocking/pixellation issues on the TiVo HD -- my understanding is that these problems ar only occuring on the TiVo HD, and not the Series3? Obviously, if the pixellation only occurs on the TiVo HD, I would be inclined to buy the Series3. My other concern is storage -- I realize the TiVo HD has an eSATA port, but it sounds like it's deactivated, whereas the Series3 allows its use. Are there any estimates out there regarding when the eSATA port on the TiVo HD might be usable? I'm feeling like the Series3 is going to be the only way for me to go, but I'd love to save the $300 and go with the TiVo HD if possible. Thanks for any input!
