    I did get the flyer today and it's the same old offer they emailed in November.

    The advisory panel info I see others posting, For base model roamio you do no better than what you'd pay at amazon. The advisory panel promo is really beneficial if you get the pro, as it is 400 + service vs best price I can get otherwise is $500. So maybe I will hold out for now until the pro can be obtained by me for 400. Unless of course you want to donate the advisory panel promo code to me!!!

    I remember the email saying there was a limited number. I doubt every Advisor will get one.

    Don't know what I'm going to do yet. If I don't use it, I'll post back here before it expires and any fellow Advisors who haven't received one can fight over it. :p

    Compared to other TiVos, yes. It is what the Premiere SHOULD have been all along. It is amazingly faster and a much better overall experience than any TiVo before it (and I have had them all).

    Is it perfect? Hell no. I am not happy at losing OTA capabilities on the Pro. As for software- still no cloud backup for settings. No custom folders. REALLY TIRED of waiting for Android streaming support....

    I received the email, will definitely get the mini at the steal of $25, but have been waffling last few hours on getting a Roamio Pro vs Plus vs just making do with my Premiere XL4 (and eventual tuner starvation since we frequently have 4 shows recording at once already...).

    Finally decided since the difference in Roamios was just the HDD, to check pricing of that vs the (after discount) pricing of the Roamios ... turns out where normally getting the Plus and upgrading it is the better option, with the coupon code it's cheaper to just buy the Pro than to buy a Plus and a 3TB drive separately.

    So now I'm just back to waffling on spending <$50 (mini) vs <$500 (mini + roamio pro)...

    Maybe that is the key. I have filled out and returned every single survey I received. I also make it crystal clear that I think most surveys they send are total BS designed to help them improve their marketing and rarely are they used to get suggestions about improving Tivo. I also always tell them that I am entering the drawing only because I want them to know who did the survey.

    If regular participation is the key, how you respond does not seem to change that.

    Tivo used to show an interest in improving but not any more. Maybe 10 years ago, long before there was an Advisory Panel they used to put out general surveys that were always aimed at improving Tivo. At one time, when you deleted a recording, it was just gone forever, there was no Recently Deleted option. The addition of that was GREAT and a direct result of a question in a general survey.

    I saw only one person here say they installed their own larger drive and find that surprising. Just 3 or 4 years ago when I bought my last two Series 3, we were ALL buying the units with lowest capacity and putting our own drives in to increase capacity.

    I was told that it will work with a Premier 2 Tuner but you loose one of the tuners

    Anyone have an extra advisory panel code they don't plan on using? I'd love to order a mini and a roamio pro both with lifetime. Please pm me if you don't mind. I'll modify this post once I recieve one to let the community know all set. If by chance I get an extra code I'll be sure to get them into those hands that will use them. Thanks!!!

    Been on the panel for years, but no email. If anyone has an extra code, I would be very grateful for it. Thank you.

    If anyone has a code that you are not planning to use then it would be greatly appreciated if you send it to me.

    If anyone sends me a code then I will delete or edit this post.

    Thanks,

    what is interesting, is that NOBODY has posted all the exact details of the "deal" yet.

    I called TiVo to find out if can take advantage of this promo and transfer my grandfathered MSD of $6.95/month from an S2. They will allow it and the Pro for $399.

    I did though no money in the time frame. It wasn't really that great a deal anyhow basically it was an offer for $50 off the Roamio and full rate on lifetime. Since I have two Premieres one with lifetime already the offer wasn't very intriguing

    I don't resell my units. They are either donated or given to family members. Honestly, it just doesn't work for us.

    Yes, it is. It's the same offer that was emailed in November, and then again weeks later. We received the colorful bi-fold flyer right after New Year's. It's a good deal, just not as good as the AP offer.

    Thanks crxssi :up: "Fast" is always a great perk ;) I wish they'd incorporate cloud back-up... even if we had to pay for it (a minimal charge).

    Yep! This forum used to be all about replacing hard drives! There was lots of tech support from members and ideas on what was best.

    *This* is why we don't do lifetime ;) We keep transfering our grandfathered MSD as well. We don't hold onto our units for more than 2 years (on the average), so it works well for us.

    I think the PRO offer is quite good but I can see why it may not be right for you.
