For Sale: Modded DirecTivo HDVR2/3 $125

Basically the modification is the box runs a custom kernel which
allows any code to run on it. It has a bunch of cool apps running on
it (provided by the active linux tivo community) that extend the
features of regular unmodded tivos. I've contributed to the Linux TiVo
community by compiling GKrellM for TiVo on this box

The box is for sale now. It works great and always has. I've recently
moved to a MythTV (cableTV based) system. I can also supply a huge
collection of software I've tested and played with. The box is
up-to-date with all the newest versions of community software. A
recent upgrade to DirecTivo Software Version 6.2 adds significant
speed improvements.

All you need to do is pull the DirecTV card out of your other box, and
plug it in this box. Thats it!
