I occasionally see Series 2 Tivos on craigslist for $40. Can I use the drives from these in my Tivos? Is it as simple as swapping them in?
Are you looking for a cheap source of IDE drives, or a cheap source of IDE drives with the TiVo software already loaded on them?
And you shouldn't pay more than $20 maximum for an unsubbed S2, not even the dual tuner model.
