    I want to take back control of my TV! I despise 4+ minute commercials and network scheduled programming. I'm searching ebay for a Tivo S2 with lifetime service at $300ish. (The S1 is really showing it's age, S3s are too expensive and I won't be needing HD anytime soon.)

    When buying Tivo, is their anything I need to watch for on ebay besides the normal stuff?

    Seller's history/feeback rating
    Condition of Unit
    Lifetime Service stated in auction

    Get all the information from the unit and call Tivo to make sure the unit is ok to be transfered to a New Owner.

    The Series 1's still work great, nothing wrong with them, as do the Series 2's.

    The Series 3 will only work with Cable not Sat, so if you have Sat do not even bother with them.

    Oh, and welcome to the Forum. :D
