[T]o summarize, the S3L loses some of the finer points of the regular Series 3, namely the OLED display, the fancier remote, and THX certification. There's also a 90GB drop in HD size which shaves more than 10 hours of HD recording time off of the device. Are these things worth the $300+ price delta compared to the regular Series 3?
So a question remains. Will Tivo offer lifetime service? I currently have two (2) series 2 with lifetime service and prefer it over paying a monthly service fee.
