    After about 10 years of service, my TurboNet card bit the dust. I tested it in my other S1 TiVo (I have 2 :)) and it's definitely the card that is bad, not a software problem. So now I need a replacement because that unit isn't getting updates anymore (dialup is not an option, and I'd rather not do the ppp-over-serial as I'm too lazy). I can use a TivoNet card as well since I have a NE2000 ISA card I could drop in there. In fact that is what I use in my other S1. And CacheCard has built-in networking as well.

    So if you have either a TivoNet, TurboNet or Cachecard that you don't use anymore, drop me a PM because I'm interested. :)

    Check ebay. They show up there from time to time.

    Well, I did before posting. Looks like the last time one showed up was a couple of months ago.

    Check ebay for used Tivos with either adapter and not just the adapter. You probably stand a better chance of finding one alreading installed in a Tivo rather than a standalone card.

    Yeah, I bought one from 9th tee this morning. I first contacted Mark to confirm that he still has any left, and when he replied I placed an order. Thanks!

    As for ebay, indeed all of those I have seen listed in the part were installed in units, not alone.


    Is he still around? I haven't been around here myself for the past few years.
