    Found some older postings on this but nothing current. I have a TiVO HD and think it's time to go to Premiere (too much rebooting...). I have a lifetime on the HD. Anyone have any luck transferring the Lifetime to the new Premiere? The site lists $399 for lifetime..that seems high. That's about 2/12 years at their 12.95 level. Do they bargain?

    In my experience, no, they don't bargain. From what I also understand, you cannot transfer your Lifetime to a new box. Sucks, I know. I just replaced my two old Series 2 with two Premieres and I had to think about it for a week or so before I went ahead and got Lifetime on both. I asked about any discounts or multi-purchase discounts (since I was going to add Lifetime to both new boxes) to no avail.

    They didn't reduce the monthly to $12.95 until shortly after I purchased mine so the numbers I had were a little better, in terms of how long it takes to pay for itself. ha! way to rationalize, eh?

    Sell that Tivo HD on Ebay and make some money toward lifetime on a new box. HD's with lifetime on them are going for between $300 to $375 on Ebay these days.

    I would think the OP would need to fix the rebooting issue first to get those figures.

    Not always true. I've seen some with problems go for around that same amount, maybe a little less. The lifetime is what sells them.

    Your rebooting is LIKELY just the hard drive.. Get a new hard drive, copy your existing stuff to it (or not) with existing relatively easy to use tools... and most likely, your rebooting problems will be fixed.
