    I still have one of the original HD DirecTivos up in my attic somewhere. I think the thing cost $1000. I wish I had all the money I've spent on gadgets that are now obsolete.

    Me too. I spent $1000 on a 1 GB hard drive back in the early 90s.

    I just can't bring myself to recycle the old Tivos though. There's unusual nostalgia tied to those things.

    My "pile" consists of a 540 (works), 540 (no sub), and an HD (blinking green light of death).

    One step from the pile is a 240 with a USB NIC and digital converter on the attic antenna.

    We use the Roamio OTA, Roamio Basic, and 4 minis.

    With the Rovi switchover, the OTA didn't record some shows, and I was able to transfer them over from the 240 in all their SD, RF modulated glory.

    In 1995, I bought a state of the art Pentium Pro PC from Quantex. To even things out, I got my wife an 18K gold diamond tennis bracelet. Guess which still gets used regularly? :eek:

    That is so cool!
    I am not that organized. Mine are all over the house. I recall giving away at least one of my first Tivos to a friend, long before the masses had DVRs. But...I can not find it in my heart to get rid of my Tivos not in rotation.

    4. TiVo HD (died after 7-1/2 faithful years, currently collecting dust)
    5. Roamio (present unit)

    Wow, did you have a lot of TV's (plus looks like you switched between cable and DirectTV)? I have 2 S1's in the basement, 2 S3 OLED's still connected but not actively recording anything and 1 Roamio Pro from the last 17 years (not counting my son's HD and an HD with bad cable tuners that was given to me to play with OTT).

    I can't beat or even tie that, but I do have a nice pile:

    2 Bolts with lifetime
    2 Series 1 (with lifetime)
    2 Series 1 (had lifetime, transferred to the bolts)
    1 Series 1 (with nothing)

    The 5 S1s are now ready to be recycled because, other than possibly recording a security camera, I can't think of anything to do with them. So sad...

    How long did it take you to collect that all together to take the picture? :)

    Maybe an hour. Most were in the dining room already but two were in the garage and 5 were being used with TVs.

    Close. I think it was about $7K. I am pretty sure each TiVo was under $200 average and I have 6 lifetimes.

    Wow. You win!

    I've had a meager, all life-timed:

    1. Series 2 (gifted to a friend)
    2. Series 2 (lost in a move)
    3. Series 2 (somewhere - drive was dying but I had zillions of Ed Sullivan's on it that I wanted to get off, couldn't, and in despair tossed it somewhere with the idea of getting back to it somehow.)
    4. Series 3 (works but not using)
    5. Series 3 HD (in use)
    6. Roamio Basic
    7. Roamio Plus
    8. Roamio Pro

    I found one more TiVo that has a bad power supply. That makes 19 total.
