aaron11: wow good price mate


It was for the ex GF who would have gone up to $240 so even with the courier cost it should come in under that.  It is opened and tried out but essentially it's brand new.
Someone who got a freebie on a 24 month contract before deciding they wouldn't actually use it as they have Telstra.

There are a few but this was the only one I saw starting at $200, most were starting at $250 and one was buy now for $499 Laughing

Only 2 bids on the one I got.

By the large number on trademe, I suspect many people have got this free tivo deal and are now dumping them for some extra cash, as they already possibly have sky.

old3eyes: Hi Skolink. Thanx for the info.. I'll keep you in mind when my HD dies next time:-)


And there is a keystroke combo for the remote that will force it to go to the USB stick to boot from software on a thumbdrive.

Are you talking about the Tivo. How does that help then? You take out the drive and copy the os to the usb drive? Then what?

I keep a copy of current firmware on my PC. Simply put it on to a stick to enable booting.
Then go to system setup menu and select a Factory reset. That does a complete format of the (new replacement) HDD
Sure you lose all your settings and recordings, but as least you're back in business.

That's pretty useful! I didn't know the TiVo would boot from a USB drive.
