I am currently the owner of 3x series 2 DT Tivos. My cable company seems to be switching many channels from the regular cable wire to the box which is rendering my dual tuner closer to a 1 1/2 turner. My living room Tivo (the one I watch most often), has a dying hard drive (based on the thunderstorm effect that goes away upon a reboot).
My living room Tivo has lifetime on it that was transfered from a series 1. I believe the unit was purchased in 2004. I can spend $75 & buy a hard drive (I have instacake already) or I can spend more to buy the premiere.
I am not sure I want to be among the early adopters but I dont know if it makes sense to upgrade. I do love the tivo though.
1. Do I spend $75 to fix my old Dual tuner tivo.
2. Spend $299 for a Tivo & $199 for the lifetime upgrade (on a series 1 that has been collecting dust for years).
3. Spend $239 for the tivo & get monthly service?
I believe I am currently spending $15 per month in tivo fees for both monthly tivos.
Thanks for the advice,
