The Tivo-owned Series 3 HD Tivo will be out by the end of this year. It is supposed to work with CC 1.x and 2.x (so you can get dual tuners with 2 1.x cards or one 2.x card). Since it's owned by Tivo, we'll get the full support of Tivo, all new software when it's released, full MRV and HMO, etc. With DirecTV, Tivo has to run everything through DirecTV, and as such we are left with a 3+ year old software version, with no signs of ever getting an upgrade. Even if we do get an upgrade, it will likely be to a crippled 2 year old software version. And there's a chance Comcast will come out with their Tivo DVR sooner, but it's unclear if this will be another DirecTV situation where Comcast controls the software rollout. What will you do?
