Question FS Question: To rebuild & sell or just sell (Tivo HD w/Lifetime)

i have a tivo hd with lifetime service on it with a dead 1TB hard drive.

does the collective wisdom suggest i sell it as-is, or put a hard drive in it and sell? is it better to sell on ebay or here on the tivo forums?

thoughts? THX!

Depends on your technical skills. If you can do the imaging yourself and can find a good deal on a drive it would probably pay off to fix it. However if you have to buy a preformatted drive from Weaknees then it'll probably cost about as much as you would gain, so it's probably not worth it.

Better to buy a cheap drive and repair it -- lifetime tivo hd have been selling at bargain basement prices on ebay.
