    Well, there is always EBAY for that; no question you'll find a buyer, but you might not be happy with the prices they are willing to pay.

    All three coupon codes may be used during a single purchase. They can't be combined with some other offers, like the free glo remote offer on our page. If you have a question about ordering, please let me know or reply to this thread.

    The idea here is to work together with TCF to give you some deals that are better than you can find anywhere else. Hopefully that is the case, and if they are not, please let me know and I will look into it further.



    Current Status TiVo Series3 and TiVoHD Specials

    3 FREE MONTHS of TiVo Service on Activations applies all units ACTIVATED between Jan 16th and October 31st, 2008 (more info)

    Lifetime Service is now available (as of 5/15/08) on new TiVo DVR purchases and activations. $399 for the first unit on your account and $299 for any subsequent unit on your account. All TiVo Series3 and TiVo HD units purchased from DVRupgrade are eligible for this pricing as your activations are done with TiVo, directly.

    $200 Rebate on Series3 Purchases between June 29th, 2008 and August 30th, 2008. We have a limited supply of these units, so they are likely to be gone before then.



    Thanks again for your support,

    Looks like lots of the prices have changed, many the same as or lower than the previously listed coupon prices. Any newer deals?

    Yes, prices have been lowered (again), and the free remote / wireless G coupon is still active!

    Here's something that hasn't been mentioned in this thread though...

    ... we still have a stock of new Series3 units available, and they can be purchased for $399 each.

    Do both the Series 3 and the HD support the external add on drive?

    Series3 and TiVo HD units will work with the Western Digital branded "My DVR" drive which I believe can offer up to 500GB of additional recording capacity.

    The Series3 will also work, plug and play, with many aftermarket eSATA enclosures; we offer a 1TB version based upon the Apricorn enclosure.

    The TiVo HD will not work with any aftermarket eSATA enclosures as plug and play devices, however with software reconfiguration on the primary hard drive, it can work with an aftermarket eSATA enclosure as long as it is configured with the primary drive of the unit.

    Lastly, if you are considering an upgraded unit, you cannot add an external drive as a plug and play device without reconfiguring the software on the primary drive.

    The recommendation around here is to stick with a single drive unit, whenever possible as it will be more reliable and offer a bit less clutter, however if you are looking for something more than 1TB, then either of the two units are available in a 2TB configuration (one internal and one external drive in the aforementioned enclosure).

    Thanks. That all makes sense, including getting a large enough hard drive to not have to go dual.

    My current Tivo is dying a slow and painful death. But buying a new Tivo with another lifetime subscription will be painful, also.

    So I'm weighing my options.

    Well... as you may know, repairing and possibly upgrading your existing unit is certainly doable and will help to preserve the value of your lifetime subscription - even if you were to ultimately sell the unit on ebay or somewhere else. I'm sure you are considering that, and also the thought of moving to HD (which is a nice benefit, should you go in that direction)...

    FYI, we've exhausted our supply of Series3 units which were available at that special price (and yes, they were new, unopened, not refurbished units), however we've kept a couple which are still available for use in upgraded configurations. We don't expect them to last much longer so if you are considering purchasing an upgraded unit, we recommend you do that as soon as possible.

    Once these units are gone, they are gone.

    Well my Series 3 is doing the constant reboot thing and I think it probably needs a new drive. Does anyone know if "DVR Upgrade" has overnight shipping?

    Crap. The things we do for our kids... I just ordered the 1TB drive from DVR Upgrade. I just hope they get the thing shipped today. My kids are all over me to get their TiVo back. :D

    As an aside, has anyone else installed the 1 TB drive from DVR Upgrade? How do you like it? Is it quiet?


    UPDATE: Good customer service Lou! It looks like I'll have it tomorrow! Thanks. :)

    No, we retired that coupon code. The VideoReDo products listed on our site are $5 less than what is listed directly on the VideoReDo site. You can use this coupon code for an additional $5 off:

    TCF-VRD-5

    If you are downloading the trial from our site, we email you that coupon code during the trial-period.

    Here's a good starting point for an overview of the VideoReDo products:

    VideoRedo for MPEG and TiVo file editing; and DVD Burning

    Thank you. I just purchased it. There's no mention of how or if I get a license key. I already had the trial installed and it is expired. Thanks.

    I just checked and the cart ran out of 'tokens' which are supposed to be emailed to you automatically. It's fixed now and you should have received an email with a token and instructions for generating the license key from the VideoRedo site. If you didn't receive this email, please check your spam, or contact us and we'll resend the info and instructions.

    Thx,
    Lou

    For anyone considering a purchase of VideoReDo TVSuite software from the DVRUpgrade folks, that additional $5 off coupon (shown in a previous message above) is still active as of today when I placed my order. This is a good deal bringing the cost of the software to $64.99 (a $10 savings off List).

    This was my first order with the folks at DVRUpgrade and it was a very smooth process. Their company rating on ResellerRatings.com is stellar and a tribute to their operation.
