Hi, Sorry if this has been asked before, I did a quick search and found nothing. I've just ordered a TiVo on ebay, and was wondering what everyone else does about the subscription. Here is the predicament: Lifetime +One off payment, then no worries about keeping it up +20 months worth, for a potentially longer time +might hold its value more when I come to sell it -what if TiVo stop supporting UK? -what if a better box comes out (as rumoured)? Monthly +Easier on bank balance for the short term +Doesn't matter if something better comes along +If box went wrong I wouldn't have lost £200 -Could work out more expensive if it lasts more than 20 months -Yet another direct debit to add to my lists I know ultimately this is a matter of convenience and therefore your all going to be inclined to say "it's up to you" but I suppose the two points I'm getting at are: 1. Will something better come along within the next 20 months that will be worth upgrading? i.e. TiVo series 2 - are there any real differences in what it actually does? 2. As it's obviously second hand (but reconditioned), will it last two years without problems? How do you pay for yours? Thanks in advance.
