    You don't have to wait until the sale is over. You can actually buy the newer box now for 399.99 and get lifetime service for 499.99 or 399.99 if you qualify for multi service discount.

    It's not really an "older version". The Elite and XL4 are the exact same hardware. The only difference is the name that is silk-screened on the front and printed on the box.

    But if you really want to pay an extra $50 for a box with a newer name then that's your prerogative.

    Dont think I've ever seen a promo code box during checkout on tivo.com. Where is it?

    When I entered my Tivo account info at checkout I automatically received the multi-service discount which reduced the price of the lifetime to $399.

    The discount was only for refurbished units. That's why they were elites and not XL's

    The XL boxes were refurbished while the Elite boxes were new.

    Or I should say the XL boxes specifically stated that they were factory renewed while the Elite boxes made no mention of being factory renewed.

    I'm waiting until October/November time frame where hopefully it will be down to $250 range. Also would prefer to buy directly through Amazon not something like "Woot".

    Woot is owned by Amazon. I will just purchase the extended warranty from TiVo when I activate it.

    I'm finally in for one, It hit my price point.

    Only if TiVo doesn't sell out of their stock pile Elites. They won't be selling the XL4 boxes that low. Although I haven't seen any refurbished Elites for sale yet. I could see those being lower, but not a new one for $199.

    And it was at $500 just a few months ago. Prices on technology fall. That's just the nature of the beast. Well, unless you sell celular phone service, then prices just go up.

    Yes, but I can't use my Amazon login (and Amazon Prime) to purchase one.
    EDIT. Well looks like you can kind of link up Woot & Amazon accounts. Hmmmm.

    I'm in on the Woot deal paying via Paypal. Will make sure the unit is working with the trial period and hold off for lifetime for a few months (I still have a few months left on a 3 year pre-pay I want to use up before getting lifetime for this new Elite).

    Great deal, got one. Figured they'd be blowing out the Elite stock at some point.

    That's a heck of a deal! If I didn't just recently buy one, I would have been all over this!
