If this is in the wrong section, please move it. I didn't know if I should put it in the help section because I do not own a Tivo yet. I am looking at getting a Tivo. I am a staff member that lives in a residence hall (dorm). I have basic cable so I only get the over the air hd channels, so I don't think an HD Tivo is necessary. I have a coax cable for hookup and I also have an ethernet port right by the TV. I can get a phone line to it, but I don't think that is right by the TV. So here are my questions: 1. What would be the best Tivo to look at getting? 2. I saw that members post their's for sale on here and I know I could also get one on ebay, craigslist, etc. How can you get burned in a sale? 3. I would ideally like to get a box that has a lifetime subscription on it, but how does that work? 4. Is it possible to buy a box that owes money? 5. Any other advice? If anyone could steer me towards some good deals that would be awesome! Like I said, it just needs to be basic and able to record basic cable. From what I have read it looks like a series 2 would best serve my needs, but I am still not sure. I hope I can get some help. Thanks in advance!
