    With the EURS?

    Does it just sit there on the welcome screen or does it keep rebooting?

    (if that 648 is lifetimed, we can, not easily, save the sub by transplanting the crypto chip, or you could sell it to me cheap and I could find another 648 mobo to move it to)

    Yes it's the 2TB EURS. Just sits at the Powering Up screen with the yellow background covering the top 2/3s of the screen (if I remember the last time I successfully saw a TiVO startup sequence correctly then the TiVO guy should pop up, but he never does). No rebooting.

    I'm not interested in surface mount soldering so that's out. If you want to chat about buying it from me, feel free to PM me.
