I experimented with the different options, native, hybrid and fixed.

Finally stuck it on fixed 1080i and haven't looked back.

No more flicker, less delay changing channels, and everything looks pretty darn good.

I do only record HD content on my S3, which might make a difference.

I am still experimenting with these settings with my Sharp Aquos 1080p monitor. I like using the fixed mode at 1080i because I can set my Aquos in the Dot-to-Dot aspcet setting. This works great for programming in 1080i because the tivo does not have to convert and my Aquos just converts the 1080i to the 1080p native resolution of the screen. The concern is 720p programming. Tivo will convert to 1080i then still leaving the Aquos to upscale to 1080p. It would be nice to have a hybrid mode that keeps 1080i until you have 720p programming. That way 720p does not have to be interlaced then back to progressive. What would be better if the tivo will have a 1080p fixed output. I hope future software can address this.
