Well, I finally had enough RCA units fail that they have all replaced by the DirecTV DVR. I am not happy, but I simply can't justify fixing a bunch of old receivers and paying $10 a month to keep them running. I don't want to store a bunch of electronics when I know someone out there can use these. I would prefer to get rid of the whole lot to a single person, ideally in the NW Chicago suburbs, but I would be willing to meet or ship. I may be interested in items (a Sony alpha body would be awesome) in trade or cash. If anyone is interested in picking up some spare UTVs to repair, use for parts, etc, please PM me. I would expect the fully working unit to fetch about $50 and the others about $20 each. Shipping will be steep for all of them, but we can come up with something.
2x Working perfectly (one version 3.8, one 3.7) - $50 each or both for $80 plus shipping
2x Single tuner failure - $20 each or both for $30 plus shipping
I had upgraded all but one unit to larger drives and have now been reverted to the original 40GB drives. Only one of them had any significant use, the rest spent their time on a shelf waiting and should still have some life left in them.
3 of the drives were imaged to 3.8 (that FAQ is the BEST!) and are working perfectly (except the tuner situation).
These all come with their original boxes (some white box some color) and the remotes (1 is a generic DTV remote). I believe I could assemble at least 3 original packages (remote, cables, manuals, etc). I also have 3 keyboards but I don't know if they work.
Heatware is under compcons
EDIT: found out the one I though had a bad PSU is actually a working unit. I guess that dead unit went the UTV graveyard.
