I have been lurking for a while and looking at getting a TiVo or other DVR. I almost bought a series 1 off of amazon but was worried about the age of it and small capacity. I'm not thrilled with paying somebody $80-$100 for a $40 HD upgrade so I passed on that. I found a deal on craigslist today I just couldn't pass up. A TCD540080 still new in the box for $40. I also picked up a Trendnet TU2 ET100 USB to ethernet adapter at radio shack since I don't have a land line. I like to tinker, mod and upgrade (hack) electronics and I look forward to the wealth of information on this site. All this can be a little overwhelming for a TiVo newbie like me so any suggestions would be welcomed. Thanks.
