    Why not keep the Amstrad as a FTA/FTV system in another room?

    If it's a DRX400 then you should get a good price, try looking on ebay for current prices.
    TIVO's are still in demand since production was stopped so again check out ebay for some guidance.

    Hi
    The Tivo is on sale on ebay, i want to get as much as i can for it, so i cant give you a price but they are going for between £150.00 to £250.00 + on ebay.

    I am selling because my wife prefers to watch a sky channel and record another and i am having the existing sky box installed in my cinema room.

    Are u keen on buying a Tivo?

    cheers

    I like the principal of them although the sky+ sounds the same in theory,people are saying they are about to launch sky+2????:confused:
    Don't know what to do....
