Series 2 with lifetime on goodwill for $6.95 plus shipping

http://www.shopgoodwill.com/auctions...-15650600.html
I see that this TiVo has no current bids and I just checked with TiVo and Shawna said it has lifetime. Check the pictures out and call to TiVo to make sure it does have lifetime. If no one wants it I will bid on it and then resell it. I hate to see a lifetime service go to the recycle bin.

There is a HD TiVo on that site too, but Betsy says that is DOES NOT have lifetime.

What makes you think it has lifetime? Did you actually call Tivo and ask?

"Condition
Item Appears To Be In Good Condition. Item Has Not Been Further Testested "

Let's hope it actually works for whoever won it...

What difference does it make to you? It is already sold.

And 'Yes' the phrase below does mean I did call Tivo and SHAWNA AT TIVO SAID IT HAS LIFETIME!!!!'

"I see that this TiVo has no current bids and I just checked with TiVo and Shawna said it has lifetime."

That model is fairly reliable.

Glad to see that you got it. Hopefully it works OK. I only bid because I have a bunch of TiVos without lifetime that I can use as spare parts. I have had lots of that particular model and none of them have ever had a problem with the mother board, the part that make repair more difficult. ( I.E. by moving the crypto chip to another motherboard )

I think you read attitude in my post when that wasn't my intention. It was just poorly worded.

And I asked before it sold because I was considering buying it.

If shows a End Time 2/27/2014 7:05:00 PM PT

And you posted at 11pm.

Or maybe your posting time somehow is different because of your location? So 11pm is actually before 5pm Pacific?

Just asking..... if it is, I apologize.

I thought it was still open when I posted, but I had looked at it earlier I'm not sure if I looked again before I actually posted.

In any case it doesn't matter it's over.
