    I'm in the market for an original Premiere 2-tuner w/OTA.

    Either the 320GB TCD746320, or the 500GB TCD746500.

    I would like New In Box, or Never Used, preferably one that hasn't been sitting around for years, but may consider that as well.

    I just want it for parts, and a never-booted drive.

    Best Buy and Amazon have the 500GB for $99.

    Anybody have one they can sell for less?

    Why do you need a never booted drive? You know you can do a Clear & Delete Everything and restore it to factory default right?

    Part of the DvrBARS project, by ggieseke. We are looking for "virgin" drive images. A C&DE doesn't zero-out the areas that were changed, thus increasing the size of the backup image. If a drive is written full, then a C&DE done, it would back up every sector. On a virgin drive, it would only back up what the factory image was, and skip the rest.

    EDIT/ADD: What I want for myself, is just a "parts source". A "virgin" drive is just icing on the cake. As far as parts, sometimes it's easier to get them from a spare new unit than to source them.

    Ahhh.... I'd say keep an eye on the TiVo clearance section. They've had refurbs as low as $40 in the past.
