    I think you're going to need an activated Tivo to get MSD. Are you going to be able to activate a Mini without a host DVR? Don't think so.

    I have an Elite and Premiere DVRs on my account now - I just apparently used the MSD discount to buy lifetime on them both...

    I'm having the same issue where it shows $399 then $499 in cart...was told it was because of the current one being an MSD purchase...

    is this a new thing? I just bought my premiere 4 in January and my regular premiere also had MSD lifetime but i was allowed MSD on the 4...and this really seems kind of shady to show $399 then change to $499 in cart...

    has anyone been able to call and plead their case and get $399?

    Don't take the time as someone said that PLSR code still works to give you the $100 off

    It does not work if you are buying a TiVo and the service plan at the same time. I'm thinking and hoping it works when you activate the TiVo that you bought somewhere else such as Weaknees.

    Before this thread, I have never heard of such a requirement. If this is true, it really sucks.

    Doesn't even make sense. If you have EVER paid full price on lifetime, then there should be a record of that and you should be eligible for discounts from that point forward. Even if you sell the original box on which you paid full price lifetime, that doesn't take away that you paid full price once.

    I can't confirm or deny it, since I still have an ancient "Philips 20 Hour PTV Recorder" with lifetime showing on my account. But I sold or threw that box away many years ago. I can't remember exactly what happened. I think it went bad and was not worth repairing.

    Only thing I can find on their site says "for a Product Lifetime subscription to qualify you for the multi-service discount, the TiVo DVR to which it is attached must have connected to the TiVo service within the last 180 days." It doesn't say it has to be the one you paid full price on the LifeTime service.

    That's how it worked when I bought my P4 from Yogi Comp. It did not work when trying to buy a DVR+Service on Tivo.com

    I better email Weaknees and get my TSN and activate it before someone turns that code off. I didn't realize that they would send you the TSN in advance.
