I found a couple series 2 lifetime locally for $50 each, just not sure if it worth the hassle. If it weren't for the outrageous eBay fees including PayPal, I'm not sure if it's worth the trouble.
You can't transfer the HD content to a Series 2, the Tivo won't allow it. It will have the red circle with a slash through it on those recordings and tell you that it is not compatible.
If you have certain shows that you plan to watch in the room where you want to put the S2, you could always record them in SD just for that purpose. If you want to be able to choose any recording to transfer, then this setup won't work for you.
