    It is all relative, I suppose.

    As per my original post, I should mention that the coupon is only good through December 31st (as are the rebates).

    Have a safe and happy holiday!

    FWIIW, I purchased a lifetime with the Tivo HD using an old tivo subscription # from about 5 years ago.

    Lou,

    Is the 43-Hr HD Tivo fully compatible with the My DVR Expander?

    Thanks!

    No, unfortunately, external drives like the MyDVR Expander cannot be used on units which have already been upgraded. More details on "the rules" are here, but our recommendation is to go with a single drive unit whenever possible (one drive is inherently more reliable than two) and to go with the largest configuration you expect to need from the beginning, so you don't have to upgrade again later.

    These coupon codes should still work today, right? I have the Tivo HD 43-hour and Tivo Glo remote in my cart but none of the coupon codes will work for me.

    I had the same problem, and emailed DVRUpgrade. They fixed it and my order just went through with the $50 off and 1 penny HDMI codes. I didn't get the remote.

    ... sorry about the problem. The cart appears to be calculating the ending date of the promotion correctly. We are extending the codes until 1/15/08 for good measure.

    Thanks and Happy New Year!

    Still not working for me....I get the message 'The certificate number or coupon code entered is not valid or does not apply to any of the products in your cart. A balance of 58.78 remains.' when entering the code for the glo-remote.

    I've just checked (again) and the codes to all work. I don't know exactly what you are trying to purchase or what codes you are using, but with a balance of $58.78, I'd guess that the error you are receiving is correct. Any of the listed TiVo HD systems certainly cost more than that, and if you are attempting to use the glo-remote coupon on its own, its not going to work. That coupon (as well as the HDMI cable coupon) is intended to be used when purchasing one of the specials listed in the original post.

    What about this drobo robot thing you guys are selling with a SATA interface? Will that work if attached to a TiVo?

    The Drobo can only be connected to a PC / Mac hosted by a USB 2.0 connection, so no, it won't work with a TiVo. Internally, it uses SATA drives.

    Alternatively, the TenBox IS an eSATA solution. We've not been able to get 2x750 or 2x1TB units to work with the Series3, which stinks (it works fine with the HR20/HR21, however). Hoping that its just a software/kernel issue and that eventually, the TiVo OS will work fine with it. Obviously, its not going to work with the TiVo HD, though...

    Oh, come on now, surely someone over there knows how to get an unofficial drive to boot with a THD. :eek:

    Send me a sample and I'll check it out. ;)

    As far as I know, all the coupon codes in the original post are still working fine. Anything other than that is listed here, including the $200 rebate special which is good on Series3 purchases through January 28th, 2008.

    I am trying to purchase a New Tivo HD unit with a glow remote and its my understanding that I should get a 50.00 dollar discount and also be able to purchase the remote for 30 bux ?? The site is telling me that the coupons do not apply??

    Thanks

    I've just checked and all the codes are working fine! Only suggestion I can make is to ensure you are attempting to purchase one of the configurations listed in the original post, and that you are entering the coupon code correctly....

    Thank you Tivoupgrade for this posting! We pulled the plug on our beloved series 2 boxes when Cablevision introduced the HiDef boxes that were incompatible with Tivo. Sadly we said good bye to our Tivo boxes and suffered with their awful DVRs until November and the lifetime upgrade offer! Weeee -so we went for it. We love the new HD box and kicked ourselves that we didn't replace both boxes. Now, seeing your posting we can (already called Tivo and checked to make sure we qualify). PS - Electronics Expo is still the lowest price on the little HD box $242 even though it's not showing up on search / comparision price sites. Thanks again! JP

    Hello,

    We are re-enabling the coupons mentioned in the original post so that folks interested in taking advantage of the TiVo Lifetime Subscription offer can get the best of both worlds.

    Please note that although the coupon codes above are all combinable, they are not combinable with any other specials mentioned on our site.

    Thx,
    Lou

    Deadline for the lifetime subscription offer ends today. If you are purchasing an upgraded unit, you'll need to get it activated today, but you'll need to contact us if you want us to send you your service ID after ordering. We've been asked these two questions a lot, lately:

    Q) Are units purchased from DVRupgrade eligible for these specials?
    A) Yes.

    Q) How can I purchase a lifetime subscription, I cannot find it on your web site?

    A) All TiVo service activations and lifetime subscription purchases must be made with TiVo. When activating your unit, if you already have another unit on your account (and that is required for purchasing a lifetime subscription with this offer) you should have the option when you activate.

    Technically, this offer from TiVo has now expired, but as of a little while ago, when in the 'activation' area of the TiVo account management system, you can still select the lifetime subscription. As always, we'll provide you with your service ID, upon request, when you order a system from us, so if you want to check with TiVo, we can hold your order for you to ensure you are eligible for the deal.
