WTB: Series 2 with Lifetime

I am looking for 2 working Series 2 units with Lifetime Plus.

I would prefer TCD 240X or higher.

Please mention any accessories and upgraded drives.

Lifetime Plus? I believe that is only on the Humax and Toshiba models of Series 2 Tivos.

What TV services are you going to use the Tivo for?

OTA? It would require a digital-to-analog converter box sold at electronics stores. It also would be a single tuner, even though there is a model that is a dual tuner (TCD649080)

Cable? A Series 2 would require a cable box, same situation as above, with the dual tuner only can receive analog channels remaining for a second tuner.

Satellite? Only the Series 2 will work on satellite and the satellite box, such as DirecTV..

Series 3, Premiere and Roamio models will work with cable with only the 4 tuner Roamio and the 2 tuner Premieres can be used on OTA.

Original S1 (Recycle Heaven)
Series 2 (PLS, sold)
TiVo HD (XL, PLS, "652")
Juliet Basic (4XL, PLS)

I have Directv now. If I ever switch to cable Series 2 still works, like you said. I also have two Premiers set up with basic cable and cable cards. I also have a subed Series 3 that I use for Netflix and MRV. The Series 3 is hooked up to a rarely used TV.

So one or two Series 2s would round out my system.
