I'm looking for some advice on a new purchase. I've owned a standalone series1 tivo w/ a lifetime subscription for about 5 years. It recently stopped booting. It started to suck for various reasons (no nic, serial cable to change channels) and is not worth repairing. Since I'm just not ready to upgrade everything to HD, I'd like find a cheap SD dtv receiver/tivo unit that can be connected to the Internet (I have no phone line). I'm proficient in linux but my only tivo hacking experience is adding a 2nd hard drive to a series 1. I'm under the impression that I can find a cheap unit on ebay, buy a wireless nic and attach it via usb to the unit (it seems the cheap ones on ebay won't have a onbaord nic), then scan through these forums to figure out how to make it all work. I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a unit model, a wireless nic model, and if I should anticipate any difficulty adding the tivo service to my dtv package. It looks like it's a phone call and 5 or 6 bucks a month, but it just can't be that easy, can it? Thanks.
