Well, having been in broadcasting for 25 years, and having watched HD through the Sony SAT-HD100 and HD300, the DirecTV HR10-250, the Motorola 6412, and the Sony DHG-HDD250, I have to say....
The picture on the Tivo S3 is by far and away, the finest HD picture I have ever seen.
By comparison with the above models, it is absolutely breathtaking. The clarity of HD is even more clear, the colors more natural, yet vibrant, black levels blacker, highlights more sparkling....it's magnificent.
Could the THX certification play a role in this?
I am not a technician, but I do have a trained 'eye.' And the S3 just blows me away.
If THX is the reason, thanks THX.
Regardless, Bravo, Tivo!
