? $500 ?

I take it you have lifetime on the current unit? The Series 1's still sell pretty well on EBay.

Still, with the refurb's only $80 (need this special URL to get that price: http://www.tivo.com/2.0.5.asp ), a lifetime'd unit could be as little as $378. But once you swap the HD for a 160G you're hitting pretty close to that $500 mark.

IMO, though, the features (and getting fresh/new hardware), given that HMO is now free, are worth it. Especially if you can sell the old one for $300-400.

Four TiVos now, all with single Samsung drives:
Humax DRT800 w/DVD-R (174hrs)
Two older Series 2's (142hrs and 157hrs),and a newer nightlight
Series 2, a stupid case design IMO (174hrs)
All but the last are lifetimed. TiVite since 2000. There is a Good IR solution.
