Any Demand for Series 1 Thomson TiVo's ??

1494 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  alek
I have around 4 or 5 original series one Thomson TiVo's in storage (all used).

Is there any demand for these anymore ?? - Trying to decide what to do with them.

Thanks

Mine are in the loft - I suspect museums are now the only place for them :)
This is such a shame. Would feel so uncomfortable having to scrap these :(

Found more lol - Got 6 in total now.
I'm in the middle of having a clear-out, and I thought I had 2 or 3 of these, but I actually have 4! At least one has a 250Gb hard drive with network capability, and I was going to hook them all up and remind myself exactly what I had, but if I can't sell them, what's the point? I saw on Ebay UK there's one going for £40, but when I look at completed listings, there's only remotes and no actual main TiVo Series 1 units.

I'm still using my TIVO but increasingly often I lose the sound when it reboots after a power cut. I've had it since 2006 so am fairly attached to it. Would you part with a spare power supply from one of your boxes? Pretty please. If so, email me on eugenelambert AT hotmail.com.
Thanks, but I'm in Manchester, and I'd rather just offload them as a whole with someone collecting them, rather than trying to take it apart and carefully wrap something up which I'd probably break when taking it out. If anyone wants these, I'll hang onto them for a few days, but after that, I'm going to have to get rid, alas.

Fair enough.
Just coming back to this. I had a look at all 4 units, and only 3 were ready to plug in since, for some reason, I took the hard drive out of one a while back. I presume it's the one that's in the box next to it, but I wasn't about to start faffing about with any of these much. As for the other three, I tried plugging them in and hooking them up to a TV. Only two would come on, but neither would display on the TV via SCART. They haven't been plugged in for a very long time indeed, so I assume everything important inside is goosed. I'll be black-bagging them up and leaving them out in the bin for Mr Binman soon enough.

I have a few Tivo gathering dust also a few remotes a couple of which are new. I have somewhere, if I can find it, a new power supply.
