    I said you do it on the current TiVo, but you do it on the new TiVo. I don't know if there is a limit on how many you can queue. Also note yo can not transfer shows that have the copy bit set.

    I queued up about 40 shows at once when I got my Roamio, don't know what the limit is though. On my network it took about 8 minutes per one hour show to transfer so it goes pretty fast.

    Did you get a "Thank You for using your Enrolled Card!" email from AMEX after your purchase? I ordered a $489 Roamio Pro from ABT and did not get the email! I also ordered something at Blue Nile and did get the AMEX email. That makes me wonder if I'll be seeing the $20 credit! The difference in the transactions was that Blue Nile was entirely online, while the ABT was completed by phone.

    Son of a *****. I checked my UPS tracking for my Roamio that was supposed to arrive today and see this:

    Exception - Due to local operation disruption, packages not unloaded from trailer, expect a one day business day delay

    You should call them. You might could pick it up from the local office.

    I would but it's about 2 hours away. Hasn't made it to the local UPS warehouse yet. Better be here tomorrow. I don't want to go the whole weekend without not being able to set it up and get it going.

    This is the number one reason why this site is not legit. But people don't care, as long as they get a 'good deal' on the item.

    Whatever makes you feel better about your purchase

    Yeah so lets say I bought a Roamio with monthly (12.99 multi service price). Then sold the HD, I would imagine the price would jump up to the normal non multi service price.

    But if I buy the Roamio with liftetime (399 multi service price). Then keep the HD for a little while (say a few months), then sell it. You think TiVo would try to charge me 100 ?

    You've got 7 posts here, as of now, and 5 of 'em are just scare tactic posts about 2 so called scam sellers, both of which have delivered. Are your boogeyman warnings making you feel better about your own purchase?

    I don't know what your hang up is, but maybe you should try a different topic.

    Not sure how it works if you buy a used box with lifetime, but if it's activated in your acct. it'll show there. I bought a new Premiere 4 that included lifetime (got it on eBay), and my lifetime sub is listed in my acct. I'm assuming my lifetime sub for the new Roamio (purchased directly through Tivo) will be the discounted $400.

    If you're thinking that Tivo will come back at you and say 'you sold your HD w/lifetime so now you owe us another $100', I wouldn't worry about that.

    A friend of mine got her first TiVo, a Roamio Basic, and called up TiVo and activated it with Product Lifetime Service for $499. She wasn't aware of the $399 deal. I told her to call back and give the PLSR code to get the $399 price, and to try calling back if denied. She was told that the code expired.

    Suggestions for her to get the $399? Is the PLSR really expired?

    YEs, once lifetime is already purchased it's fine. The problem might arise when you pruchase another TiVo and want to put lifetime one it. If the current TiVo is not an MSD qualifier, then it would be $500 for lifetime on the new TiVo. OF course you would just use the PLSR code anyway, without even having to worry about a lifetime qualifier, to get lifetime for $400.

    I'd say have her cancel service if its still in the initial 30 day period, then go back online and use the PLSR code.

    My hang up is that these are obliviously shady sites. Why purchase from them when there are legitimate deals from ABT or B&H?

    Oh wait, you save $20-$25 so it doesn't matter :rolleyes:

    PLSR code is no longer working online. Makes me feel better about selling my Premieres on eBay now.

    No kidding - I remember I used it in 2010 back when you could get 10% cash back on service gift card purchases through Tivo.com, which I used to buy two lifetime subs for $300 each ($270 each after the cash back!) at the time. And I think back then my Premiere also only cost $100 which was a pretty good deal at the time.

    Yeah that's pretty shocking actually. Is that 100% confirmed, especially since someone just used it yesterday?
