I never had a Series 3, but I did have a series 2. I would say as far as a multi-room solution, it's about the best you can get. It really is great to be able to view recorded shows in every room in the house whereas with previous STB's, you would have to go to the room the show was recorded on. The UI can be a little clunky, such as the press twice annoyance that many people complain about. I feel like everytime I want to do something it asks "do you really want to do this? If so, press OK again". It can get a bit repetitive, but after a while, you get used to it. The TiVO on the other hand was about as straightforward and intutive as you can get. Really simple and I think most people can figure it out pretty quickly. I also like the DLNA capability of the Moxi. Although the TiVOs have built in Netflix, they don't have Hulu, and it really is awesome to have Hulu on your TV. It really boils down to what you're going to do with it. If you want a true multi-room solution, I think you just can't beat the Moxi. If you are not interested in mult-room, you may want to look at the TiVO. The pricing is about the same, I think, if you factor in a lifetime subscription to TiVO. It may end up being more with TiVO. My one suggestion is that if you are going to have a mult-room, make sure you have sufficient network bandwith to support it. Any other questions, feel free to ask.
