    eksys.com, ebay.com - best places to buy

    Hi zolly!

    The best places to get your TiVo from are either George at www.eksys.com (I got mine from him and he is very very helpful and will accommodate most requests for variations in psting methods, etc., will install a turbonet card for you if you buy one amongst other things.) He sells factory refurbished Philips Series 1 TiVos, which is what you want.

    Or, alternatively, just do a search on ebay.com and go for a Philips Series 1 on there. If you want to try to win an auction on ebay, try out bidnapper - www.bidnapper.com - it works brilliantly and I've won every auction I've entered with it.

    Cheers and good luck.

    Thanks for that, I've bookmarked their site. I notice they're not shipping at the moment so I'll send them an email and find out when they are, and their prices.
    Bidsniper sounds rather interesting. I've seen quite a few tivo's on ebay (series 1), sadly they all have hard drives and usually have a reserve of a couple of hundred (combined with no shipping outside of the USA).

    Cheers.

    Shipping TIVOs from EKSYS

    Just to Note George at Eksys was/is on holidays until the 28th (USA). He will be back then and i am sure will help - i have had heaps of help from him.

    Also note that getting him to ship the Turbonet cards with your TIVO will save you a heap on shipping charges as against buying separately from 9th Tee in the USA.

    Yep. I mentioned I'm interested in having a turbonet card fitted too.. plus noted, no hard drives installed, but the bracket so I could mount two inside.

    Oh, and asked prices for two.. as a friend wants to get one too.

    I shall sit and wait to hear back from him.

    Thanks

    Smile Mine arrives today!

    According tot he Fedex tracking website, it's on a truck heading in my general direction I got mine from PowerOn (www.poweron.com) although they weren't to easy to deal with on shipping options, it is here 5 days after I payed for it.

    Lets all get stuck in and get the NZ community up and running!

    Cheers

    I've looked at Poweron's site, but according to their website they're not currently shipping (?) Perhaps I missed the boat I'm waiting to see if I hear back from George at the other place mentioned above. I may hear tommorow *fingers crossed*

    Yep, a NZ Tivo community would be good. Along with a NZ Dedicated CD Setup ISO (rather than using the Aussie one and using different settings... something which I don't even have any ideas about as of yet)

    Did you get a turbonet card as well Benji?
