    Send me email (with your account info) if you still aren't seeing a Multi-Service Discount, and you believe your account should qualify.

    Long...
    Well, I saw MSD lifetime pricing again after refreshing the page, but the same thing happened after adding it to my cart.

    Ok, when I select the Roamio (standard since I'm a cord cutter), it gives the option for lifetime service as $399.99 and monthly as $12.99 However, when I pick lifetime and continue, and get to the Order Summary page, it shows as $499.99 again.

    It's fine for now because I'm just "testing" until I get another paycheck... so hopefully that will be resolved in a week or so. :)

    I'm so excited!!! :)

    The order summary page was not showing the MSD. Looking at the order history now, shows the MSD is in effect.

    The Best Buy website now shows the Roamio but it says out of stock, so maybe the truck arrives soon.

    My order just went through. The order summary does not show the multi-box discount. Doug Bieter, VP, Sales, assured me that this is a web-only problem and that the actual billing will be correct.

    Guys, not to be a pain, but it would be nice not to fill this thread with order info... I wanted this for reviews and features.

    Thanks!

    Wait the remote is RF only so IR blasters don't work?

    I have a Vulkano box to stream outside the home. I understand the Roamio Plus and Pro will also stream outside the home "soon" but there is only an iOS client?

    What about Mac?

    I doesn't need IR blaster with the RF signal, but it does send an IR signal for TV and AVR support.

    At the moment, streaming is only supported on the IOS client, they say an Android update is coming soon, and I am hoping for a new TiVo desktop app as well.

    So if it gives me a discount for multi service because I currently have a premiere, but then cancel service for the premiere because this will replace it, what happens?

    As far as IR goes, I would like to know if the TiVo supports it - as those of us interested in the Xbox One will need IR support.

    You no longer have a qualifying "full price" TiVo and the next unit you purchase will not qualify for an MSO discount.

    They did say that an old IR remote will still work on the new box. But, I don't understand what the Xbox has to do with the TiVo remote?

    BTW - RF is significantly more responsive then IR.

    Not the remote, the TiVo itself. The Xbox One has the ability to control cable boxes using IR blaster (or via a HDMI standard that this new TiVo doesn't support). So if the new TiVo still supports the old IR remotes, we should be ok.
