Short version: Our church starts at 12:15. A DVR would allow us to see the part of the game that we missed (as well as skipping a bazillion truck commercials.)

I figure Tivo is still the way to go, for ease of programming?

Anyone selling their Tivo with lifetime service, by any chance?

Perhaps you just got married, and your spouse and you both already had one?

By chance you could have stumbled across a pallet of them at a garage sale?

Maybe you have developed a moral conundrum with the Tivo company, and out of spite you are selling your box at a rock bottom price?

make sure what you buy does OTA. Some Series 3 and all Series 4 don't do OTA.


Also, you are aware that Tivo lifetime is for the unit right, so if the hard drive or power supply craps out, you have nothing. Just making sure you don't think it means you can replace the box and get free service as a lot of people assume.

I'm seriously glad our pastor is just as big a sports freak as myself.

I'm seriously glad our pastor realizes that nobody likes long boring sermons.

All good ideas, folks.

Our church is small, but growing, so we end up renting space from larger churches at non-standard times.

I'd worship at our church even if it overlapped the whole game, but it would be nice to catch the game, too.

From what I'm reading, the Series 2 Tivos won't capture in HD, and that you can find people parting out components of broken units if you're trying to keep your "lifetime" alive.

You can tell just how much the Tivo and Cable companies of the world are subsidizing their boxes, because otherwise someone would have made an affordable no-contract box by now.

We can put a man on the moon robot on mars, but we can't record simple OTA HD signals and play them back very easily.

Correct. Good luck finding a OTA HD DVR.

you need a TIVO HD Series 3 to get OTA, but it's doable.

Series 3, IIRC. Anything within 20% of a comparable unit on ebay. Don't even know the market. Hadn't considered selling it until now.

is it black with a partially silver front or does it have the LED display? It's HD correct?
