Why in the world is the new Tivo Series 3 not supporting the 20 million or so Dish Network/Direct TV uses with it's new HD unit? If the real point is HD content then the Satellite services are way ahead of cable in their ability to provide HD content. The last that I heard both Dish and Direct are going to soon offer the capability to receive 1000 channels in HD. That means your local broadcast channels and every "cable" channel will have the bandwidth to go to HD. When if ever will cable be able to provide such a service? I simply cannot fathom TiVo's decision not to put an HD capable input on the series 3 (HDMI with HDCP or Component). IMHO this is a major/potentially fatal design flaw/omission and it can only be deliberate. What is the explanation?
