Advertisements My Series 1 had been sitting unused since about 2011 when my father said it stopped working. I had been getting my Tivo service through satellite, and then through rented cable TiVo boxes, and occasionally thought about transferring that lifetime service, but never did, until now. I had purchased the lifetime on it in 1999! Happy TiVo user here. Now, what to do with this Series 1, which actually still does boot up??
