IF you currently have a series 3 I would definitely go ahead and spring for a premiere. As long as shows are not flagged you can transfer from paused points. Also while it is still not here yet it is a good bet streaming will be possible in the future. I also have one of my tivos hooked up to a tv in the bedroom and in the living room. The new slide remotes work on bluetooth so you can control the tivo from both rooms. This way would also allow you to start a show in one room and resume it in another. I am pretty sure that you can also do this with u-verse though.
