    I've got two series 1 TIVOs in perfect working order, one with a much bigger 2-year old hard drive in it. Since I got the VirginTIVO, they've been sitting in a cupboard. Is there any point advertising them on e-bay, as I'd be frightened the buyer wouldn't read any warning I gave of the data being switched off soon, and would want their money back when that occurs.

    Anyone got any ideas as to their value, or for that matter want to buy them off me? I'm kinda hoping that together they might just pay for a new iPad 2, or is that unrealistic?

    If you're lucky together they'll pay the first £40 of an iPad

    A "collection only" unmodified TiVo went for £4.99 on eBay yesterday.

    How much are they worth ? Practically zero at the moment :(

    Rip out the cachecard if you have one, as they still fetch £40-50 on their own on ebay.
    e.g. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150600251550

    Noone is spending money until after the 1st.

    Yups - lucky to get £15-£20 including postage at the moment. Many sold at just 99p a few weeks back...

    Still not seen any on freecycle though :-(

    Glad to see it going to a good home. I was going to put a bid on it but I forgot - to give to my parents to replace their topuptv box which is a pile of c**p.

    Doing guided setup as we speak. Needed three tons of dust removing from the innards but seems in good health.

    Thanks for not bidding - petrol costs pushed the original price up an extra 250% so overall <£20 (just) - not too bad.

    Just need a network card now (any variety).
