I'm sorry for these newb questions, but I feel I would get a more accurate answer from you guys than a Tivo customer service rep if I called their 877 number.
If you don't buy these things direct from Tivo, can you still get the multi-year plan deals? Say I buy the unit at Circuit City, who do I buy the $299 three-year subscription plan from? Does that issue/option come up during set-up of the Tivo3, or is it only for customers who buy direct from Tivo at time of Series 3 purchase? If the answer is the latter, then if I buy at CC and hook it up, does it ask for my credit card number and bill me monthly?
Also, I notice it has a single antenna input. Does the signal get split within the unit, or does it maintain full, single-line strength to both tuners within the unit? I will not be using this thing with cable, at least not for the foreseeable future, so this is of concern to me.
