Greetings all.. This feels like it's likely to be a FAQ, though I couldn't find it either asked or answered.. Apologies if I've gone blind or something. We're currently happy with our DirecTiVo S2, but are considering making the jump to FiOS TV (screamingly good deal through my employer). We're not about to go TiVo-less, or worse, use some crappy DVR from a cable co. All that said, we've not yet taken the plunge and gone HD, though everything else in the HT setup is prepared for that move. Here's my plan, please confirm, or dash my hopes as is appropriate. I'd like to get an S3 TiVo, not settled on which one, though. Likely to be the more recent model, and later take advantage of the eSATA port hack - OLED front display sounds neato and all, but not worth the extra $$ to me. I'd like to get that unit, with a pair of CableCards (or one of the new-fangled multi-stream cards), and connect it all to my good old 32" Sony Wega (SD only). Am I barking up the wrong tree here? I know the S3 units will still record SD programming, but is HD a requirement for using CableCards for some reason? I suspect it's not, but I wanted to be 100% sure before throwing down our cash on such a purchase. Many thanks for the time & patience with my inquiry..
