    I can't imagine they are buying for the hard drive, as they don't give any money for any S2 that doesn't have lifetime no matter what size of hard drive. It is the 'lifetime' that they are paying for.

    I feel pretty sure they're putting in new hard drives, which is why I'm wondering where they're getting new ones that small.

    Unless they overstocked on them back when they were considered big and have had money tied up in them all this time.

    I think you have 45 days from the payment date to return something on ebay, if it doesn't match the item description.

    This is obviously a service for those who just want to "get rid of" an old TiVo they have, and many have them sitting in closets and wives who want to know when hubby is getting rid of said TiVo to make room for more stuff or just a "you never use the thing and it's been there for years now. If no one can use it, just give it away."

    Those folks don't want to bother with ebay or Craig's List or any of that and a lot of people DON'T want an old TiVo when HD is where its at today. So, Weaknees takes it off their hands for free and turns around and makes money because TiVo lovers do check their site from time to time and may buy one of those old units for some purpose. Considering some Series 2 TiVo's were selling for $25 at BlockBuster during their going out of business days, anything more than that for a purchase price seems a crime.

    Glad Weaknees are taking them rather them going into the trash pile, although I am not willing to spend all the time packing them up for free. I will give them away on craigslist, here, or other venues that I don't have to pack them up.
