Advertisements Can I use a Series 3 or above Tivo without paying a monthly fee and without lifetime?(I know that the functions are very limited) I am referring to a Series 3 or above that in the 'tivo account status' shows 'open' rather than 'closed'? The reason that I am asking is that I have series 2 tivos and I can use them to record without service even though they don't have lifetime service. I think that I may be able to do this with a series 3 tivo as long as the Tivo hasn't connected to a phone jack or wireless and the 'guided set up' hasn't already been started? Has anybody tried this?
