Advertisements My 3-year-old TiVo HD recently died. (Constant cycle of booting-GSOD-booting etc. Diagnostics failed to fix anything.) My options seemed to be, have TiVo replace it with another refurb HD unit for $150, or buy a new or refurbed Premiere. I ended up getting a refurb'ed Premiere for $100. So now I have this HD with a dead hard drive. Should I try to sell it on eBay? Or hack it and turn it into some sort of generic non-TiVo DVR? I don't want to have (or pay for) two TiVo subscriptions, so whatever my options, I wouldn't have service for this box. When I canceled service on my old Series 2 a long time ago, it stopped working too. Not just the program guide, but I couldn't use it to transfer between TiVos any more either. Would that be the case with this newer TiVo? Thanks for the advice.
