If you're interested in a suped-up Tivo, get series 1.  Go to ebay and
look for something already upgraded with NIC and bigger hard drive.

Series 2 has too much protection to be worth suping it up.  The level of
protection in series 2 is the epitome of what a consumer-level encrypted
system should be.  I tip my hat off to the Tivo engineers.
