    Well, I decided to take advantage of the offer, but then I was out of the office last week, and I realized that the offer expired on 1/30. I had two TiVo HD's at the time that I cancelled my service. One of those had gotten fried by electricity, and the offer I got in my email listed only one ESN that it was good for. The TiVo was buried away in a storage area that I knew my wife wouldn't find, so I figured I'd probably be out of luck, but would try to give them a call once I got back into town, just in case.

    Anyone else here happen to call *after* the expiration date of the offer expired?

    In the process of digging through my storage room, I was amused to find a brand-new, never opened TiVo HD. I had totally forgotten about that one. I had actually gotten it from Blockbuster (I think for $99) back when Blockbuster was dumping their inventory. It would have been my 3rd TiVo at the time (my other electrocuted one hadn't been electrocuted yet), but I was still debating whether or not to bother, so it just sat in its box in my closet forever. Anyway, that got me to wondering if I might be able to swing a $50 lifetime deal on that one, too.

    Anyways, right now I'm waiting for the Guided Setup to complete. I figured I should make sure everything's working OK before bothering to call. The deactivated one previously had a cablecard in it (which is now in my SiliconDust HDHomeRun Prime) and I didn't want to try swapping that in (not sure if that might screw things up), so I plugged in an antenna and am going that route. Not sure if I can even tune in any/many channels at my location.

    Well, that was a waste of my afternoon. After waiting [forever] for the Guided Setup to complete and verifying that everything was working OK, I called the number and was told that the offer expired and was no longer in their system. Out of luck. :(
