    Series 3 dual tuner, with Lifetime Service. Includes WiFi adaptor, original box with all the Directions, and a never used Remote (still in packaging with unopened batteries - not sure the batteries will actually work).

    $250.00. I can send photos to anyone interested.

    I am selling because I just got a Roamio.

    EDITED: I think I over priced this. After looking at ebay and CraigsList the price is $200.00.

    Do you still have this item for sale?
    I'm assuming the S3 requires 2 (M) cablecards?

    Thanks

    Hi - Yes, this is still for sale, and yes, it has 2 slots for cards. What I don't know is whether a single M card (?) would replace the need for 2 cards.

    Not if it's really a series 3, as opposed to an HD. Two M's or two S's.

    I used 2 cards, which I returned to the cable company. I replaced those with a single card for the Roamio.

    Which one of these does it look like?

    It it's the first, the TCD648250, it needs two cable cards, one for each tuner, regardless of whether they're S or M.

    If it's the second, the TCD652160, then it needs either two S cards or one M card.

    I don't believe you can mix. Two S-cards, fine. Two M-cards, fine (they're each used as singles). But not one M-card and one S-card.

    Still for sale. Wondering if it's just too old for anyone to want? Still works great.

    Feel free to email me directly: namurphy@rcn.com.

    Prices on older lifetime Tivos seemed to take a dive this weekend. Earlier this week, both Series 3 models were going for decent amounts.
