I have 3 Tivos currently: 1 Series 2 w/Lifetime with upgraded 500MB hard drive 1 Series 2 @ $6.95/mo 1 TivoHD @ $9.95/mo with upgraded 1TB hard drive The $6.95/mo Series 2 is starting to act funny. This is my first Tivo that I bought 9 years ago. It currently doesn't get much use, but still is set to run and record as normal. However, occasionally when we turn on the TV, this Tivo is frozen on the KidZone screen saver. It must be unplugged to reset it then it's fine for awhile. The hard drive doesn't seem to be acting funny while watching. The only trouble is the freezing. So, I thought, ok, I'll look to buy a Premiere to replace it. Well, that would cost me $99 for the unit (which isn't too shabby), but then I'd have to pay either $14.95/mo for service (up from my current $6.95) or pay $399 for lifetime (which at $6.95/mo would take almost 5 years to pay for itself). So, what is my motivation for replacing the strange-acting Series 2 with a premiere when I could probably replace the drive for $50 and get another 5 years out of it, or more?? I welcome thoughts on this. Thanks!
