Advertisements Count me among the TiVoless. After 3 years of faithful service my HDVR2 TiVo died, and since my TiVo is also a DirecTV receiver, I'm TVless as well. If you're really curious about the details, I posted in the help forums here. The short story however is that after trying to fix the old hard drives, trying new hard drives, using InstantCake successfully and actually getting the TiVo to run with a completely new drive, the unit hangs frequently and reboots spontaneously. It's a problem somewhere else in the hardware, beyond my skill to repair. It's dead. So what to do now? Sure, I can get the latest DirecTV DVR, but seriously I'd rather be without TV than use one of those. I'm a TiVo addict. I'm not switching back to cable because, trust me on this, the wiring in my apartment is crazy bad and impossible to fix. (Though I may suck it up if I can get my brother's old Series 2 when he gets a Series 3 around Christmas.) Or I can go Ebaying for an R10 or another HDVR2. What say you, Oh TiVo Masses? What should the JediCowboy do? And quite seriously, at the moment I'm leaning toward dumping TV service altogether and just using it for Netflix.
