Listing Price Questions PLS S4 320GB

I'm thinking about listing a Premiere 320gb 2 tuner with PLS because I got shafted by the local cable company and am stuck with D* for a couple of years. I don't know what a good starting price is for eBay. It looks like their fees are astronomical now. Its approaching 2 yrs old, and I may list it with my old 500GB DVR Extender, but I also have a 1TB extender and don't know if its worth listing with that or not?? My wife and I love the TiVo but its a paperweight with D* and the DirecTiVo doesn't support half the features of the real TiVos....

Any help is appreciated

List here first and see if you get any offers. (no fees here) I don't know what you want for it, but I suspect you could get at least $350 for it, maybe more.

I'm open to offers... The unit sat in a TV cabinet alone with nothing else on the shelf for about 2 years.. only had 1 cablecard in it from the onset of service. I have a 500GB extender I used with my old S3HD.. I'd be willing to part with that unit as well.. it is not lifetime.. just standard plans with no commitment needed afaik.

Is the S3 the original one with the OLED screen on the front? Or the TiVo HD one?

Its not the THX S3.. its the generic HD w/ 160GB iirc... Its the mass market one from late 2007 that was like $299 back then.

That's not going to be worth much without a lifetime sub. Looking on eBay they go for like $30-$50.

I'll give you $50 shipped. (Shipping should be cheap, we're in the same state)

Cool, thanks.

You might want to list the Premiere in a new thread. use a title like

"TiVo Premiere 320GB with lifetime $400 OBO"

Or whatever you want to charge for it. This thread title sounds like a question, not an actual item for sale.

If he has a Premiere, you should see if he can leverage that into a $99 lifetime on that S3 before it changes hands and give him $150 for it.

Already bought it. Plus it didn't have active service, so I don't think he would have been eligible for $99 lifetime.
