The Bottom Line The Series3 delivers dual-tuner HD recording and some worthwhile networking features to cable customers, but the exorbitant price tag will be too much for all but the most devoted TiVo fans. If you're willing to pay the premium price, TiVo's do-it-all Roamio is the best cable DVR yet and an able whole-home TV solution. The TiVo Premiere Elite might be a luxury, but it's definitely a luxury worth paying for.
