I'm looking at purchasing a tivo for OTA hd in ottawa and I see some great deals on premieres with upgraded (2TB) hard drives and lifetime service on ebay (in the $650 range)
Has anyone had any experience with buying tivos off ebay, or more specifically buying tivos with lifetime service off ebay? I don't want to pay all that much and then find out I can't transfer it cause I'm in canada or something.
Also, I've read that some people have better luck with the older HD model rather than the premiere. What are the pros/cons of each?
Yeah, when I originally got my TivoHD, Tivo didn't believe in HD channels working in Canada, so none of the postal codes up here had any DT listings. Times have changed (thankfully) but I haven't I've been too lazy to change over to a Canadian postal code. I've no need, as I have no cable at all, and the Niagara zip code is missing no Canadian OTA so far.Thanks Scruffy. Note that you CAN set up a TiVo with a Canadian Postal code (at least you can on the Premiere). Mine (M8Z3M1) has all the Toronto, Hamilton, Buffalo, and Rochester stations (including WBBZ and CKVR) ...
