Advertisements I was originally given the Series 1 TIVO (Sony SVR 2000 Model) as a Christmas gift back in Dec of 2000. I also purchased the lifetime service option on it at the time for about $300. I've used it everyday since and it's been an excellent device. However, for sometime now, I've noticed that there is alot of freezing, choppy playback, almost a wow and flutter like audio where it sounds like a warpped tape cassette. In any case, I called TIVO to see if I could transfer my lifetime service to a new unit. They said that they stopped doing that about a year ago. They also don't offer any lifetime service agreements anymore. So my dilema is whether or not I should get the current unit fixed. As far as getting a new TIVO, I like that they do alot more but for what I use it for, I'm not sure if it is worth getting a new one. Being I already have a lifetime service agreement, I'd probably end up paying more $ over time with a new service agreement on a new unit. Has anyone here ever had a Series 1 TIVO repaired as far as replacing the hard drive? If so, what size would I need or what type/model, etc.... and what is the best way to go about getting someone to fix it. Do you find that by replacing the hard drive that the problems you had before are now solved or do you have new ones? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
