    Yeah, I'm afraid her low brow shows will corrupt my programs. :p

    But, I at least hope the Netflix app on my Elite will improve somewhat from the experience it has now. Plus, I'd like to see an Amazon Prime app show up that is functional as well. The menu lag you can get used to if you have patience. The Netflix app is just broken and it is a tossup from trying to use it vs find the TV remote, AV remote, PS3 controller and switch over to the PS3 to load its Netflix app up.

    At one point S3 pricing was $6.95 a month. I had that on an S3 box. I'm not sure when I got it but I think it was a TiVoHD box from 2007. When I got a launch premiere it was transferred to that Premiere. Which is the only two tuner Premiere I kept because there was not much of a resale value without lifetime service. So I'll keep it on $6.95 a month unless TiVo offers me $99 lifetime on it or tries to raise the price on me.

    $6.95 was the MSD price. Full price at the time was $12.95/mo. You have to have at least one full price TiVo on your account, monthly or lifetime, to get MSD pricing so you must have had another TiVo at the time with lifetime?

    I had three OLED S3 boxes on a three year prepaid term as my qualifier.

    Yeah they stopped that price shortly after the Premiere came out. They briefly tried a scheme where the Premiere was "free" but you had to pay $20/mo, but after that failed they switched to the current $15/mo or $13/mo MSD with lifetime jumping to $499/$399 MSD. (prior to this lifetime was only $299)

    In July I bought a Premiere XL on Craigslist. The girl who owned it was paying monthly and had to switch to Uverse. Tivo offered her lifetime for $200, which Tivo let me have that price.

    Off subject - I've been running S3's for years, got a Pro and so for it is great.
