    Black or Silver series 2 ??

    i'm thinking of getting a series 2 tivo to play with (hack)

    i'm sure i read somewhere that the black ones (older) are more 'hackable' than the silver ones? can anyone confirm and/or deny!

    Yes, get black.

    Silver is not Series2 anymore. It's been dubbed Series2.5 (here).

    There are as yet no software only hacks for Series2.5, meaning you will need to solder to get it to work.

    Even then, there may be incosistencies, or certain things just might not work. Nobody has written anything about hacking a Series2.5 from a "Newbie's Perspective".
