Ill quickly explain my situation and maybe you can tell me if a "ebay'd" tivo may be my best solution. My POS cable company doesnt have dvr service yet (Just moved to Lehigh Valley PA). I have had dvr for the last 2 years and really cant live without it (maybe im exagerating a little). They are planning on adding dvr boxes but dont have a approx time (I was told it could be 1 month or 1 year......) I havnt had a land line in 2-3 years. Only Cell phone I will have 2-way cable internet I dont need season pass or anything. I simply want to be able to go in on a sunday or monday and set up the 5 or 6 shows I would want to grab for that week (Although season pass would be nice, I can deal without it) I am buying a new hdtv with multiple tuners. So I could put a dvr device on the 2nd tuner and really not use it for anything except recording and possibly PnP. But 95% of my tv navigation would be on the main tuner. I dont want to pay 12+$ per month, nor do I want to shell out 500 for a dvr from a retailer. (Im so use to having dvr for 5$ a month) So, can I buy a tivo on the cheap from ebay, throw it on my second tuner, and use it for nothing more than a dvr? Thanks all. Also looking for any other suggestions.
