    I can about say that. I'm 63, lucky to make it to 70. I don't see 4K TV taking off like HD TV did.

    I said it was my last, because 6 tuners, 3TB faster menus, what can TIVO come up with that i would want to buy? 12 tuners? I'm happy with 6.

    I was wondering, when you use the PLSR code will that TiVo count as a qualifier to get the MSD with future boxes?

    When I activated my Roamio Pro a few minutes ago the $399 MSD price showed up, but I also entered the PLSR code. SO after entering the code I had the option to check the MSD price or the price from the PLSR code which are both $399.

    I checked the option for the PLSR code but if this counts as a qualifier to get MSD for future boxes I figured I would use that. Since in the future I will not have my S3 boxes on my account at some point which I know qualify for MSD.

    Could always call and ask which boxes on your account count as the MSD qualifier. I thought it was you, but maybe it was someone else who called either on the Premiere or on the Elite and they were able to tell them which box counted.

    I want to say someone said before PLSR didn't count, but nothing to back it up.

    I've called before in the past and got the info. I'll call to check at some point in the future but I'll wait for now. Everything is up on my account except being able to assign my Minis to my Roamio Pro. I can access my Roamio Pro from my other TiVos but I guess it takes a while before I'll be able to assign the Minis to it?

    It counts. I bought a P4 in Jan 13 using PLSR for lifetime. I put a Roamio in my cart at TiVo.com and it shows $399 for lifetime service.

    There will always be something new to get you to upgrade... A new apps platform with support for a la cart IPTV for example would get a lot of people to upgrade in a couple of years.

    Yes it counts. I went to the tivo web site put a Roamio plus with lifetime in my cart and I see the $399 MSD.

    Why does TIVO bust your chops and refuse to give the discount over the phone for a code that is all over the net. they should lower the lifetime to $399 and $299 for MSD

    You are probably right. For now I do not see cable going IPTV for years. Any other upgrades like providing the same functionality as a ROKU can be done in software. Even if by some miracle they get FIOS to agree to providing on-demand, this also can be done in software. I believe the broadcom chip has multiple cores, and a lot more functionality can be added and improved, on the same software platform.

    Of course I cannot see TIVO writing good software for the next 1000 years. I base this on past examples. :)

    Premiere had multiple cores also. The performance benefit is quite modest. The new CPU seems quite snappy, so hopefully we get a year or two of real updates out of them before they push us i to a new box.

    If I'm reading this right, if I buy a Roamio as a new tivo subscriber anywhere besides directly from tivo, I can use PSLR for 100 off lifetime? Can anyone confirm this?

    Lifetime used to be $100 less. They raised it at some point before the Elite was launched. That was the first TiVo I had paid $399 for lifetime after a $100 discount.

    Yeah they raised it when they slashed the price of the base Premiere from $299 to $99.

    No, PSLR won't work. But PLSR will.

    I paid $249 for lifetime in 2002 for my Series 2, $199 for Premiere XL in 2010, now $399 for Roamio Pro in 2013.

    Never owned a Tivo, so if I buy a used Premiere, say; and activate it on a month to month plan, then go to Tivo and buy a new Roamio, will I get $100 off the lifetime plan for it since I have an activated used Tivo?
    basically, what is the cheapest way for a newbie to get lifetime on a Roamio.

    AFAIK the answer is yes. You get multi-service discount if you have an existing TiVo on a monthly plan.
