    Did anyone else just get an order confirmation for a free slide pro remote? I didn't place the order and the total was $0.00. There wasn't a message as to why either. Weird.

    Were you part of the group that got rolled back to 20.3.8 and put up with pain involved?

    Oh! I just assumed it was a "Sorry!" gesture when I got the Email also. We'll have to see if there's a card when it arrives. I have ordered 2 in the past ... maybe their ordering system got fouled up too.

    I was a part of the group that got rolled back. I also received an invoice today for zero dollars for a new TiVo slide remote. Interesting.

    Maybe it's for those on 20.4 priority list?

    Just out of curiosity.

    For the people that got the free remote... Are you a member of the TiVo Advisors panel?

    I was on the priority list and was rolled back.

    I also received an email stating I have ordered a Slide Remote for $0.

    I was on the priority list for 20.4.1 and was rolled back once to 20.3.8.

    Edit: I'm also not on an Advisors Panel, whatever that is.

    I also received the email for Free Remote. I was rolled back on my Premiere. I think it's an inconvenience gift for roll back.

    I was supposed to get 3 slide pros for being part of the beta program a few months back and never heard a peep from them, even after emailing about it. Lucky you guys!

    Yes. They cost me hours of frustration.

    And I have one in my Email too. This is really strange.

    And yes, I am also on the TiVo Advisor's panel.

    And yes, I participated in the beta months ago and never got anything (and participated in a long beta over a year ago and got nothing then, either... although I am not doing it to "get" anything).

    Who knows. Already have a TiVo Slide Pro, but I suppose a spare can't hurt anything.

    I just got the order email to. I was on the priority list and had the roll back. I'm not on the Advisors Panel or done any beta testing.

    Don't you think 3 slide remotes is a little over the top for a program you volunteered for? A token should suffice.

    If TIVO is in fact providing a Slide to those who were inconvenienced due to the rollback it is an unexpected and nice gesture for something noone volunterred for.

    It depends upon what you are asked to test, I know many companies send out not only pre-release (beta) software but often times hardware too. Of course this comes with a NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement) so you can't say what you've tested/seen and for whom.

    Some companies send a small thank you gift while others send nothing more than a simple "Thank you".
