If you're a big enough TV fan to need 100 recorded hours of HDTV (or 925 hours of ever lovin' standard def) then you probably already know about WeaKnees
, the website that sells modded TiVos at a premium. The site already has the TiVo
Series3 available for pre-order at prices ranging from $800 to $1600, and the company says the new Series3 are expected in stock
by September 22. But the better news -- and the reason we're writing this article -- is that these modded TiVos are being officially deigned eligible for the $200 lifetime service transfer
that TiVo is offering to existing customers who buy the new Series3. We still don't know why TiVo doesn't just sell these beefed-up boxes itself instead of letting someone else do it -- but no matter, more power to the independent retailer!
