    For me, i think the key is to sell the previous models soon after the new models are out. Many people don't want to try a brand new model and will still be looking for the older model.

    After the new model has been out a while then the price you can get for the older model goes down. Plus if you've increased the storage capacity or have an extended warranty it also helps with the resale. I sold several of the Series 3 on ebay soon after the S4 models came out. I pocketed 80% to 90% of what the lifetime Premieres(non XL) cost me since they had also been upgraded to a larger hard drive years ago.

    And I sold my two tuner S4 boxes when the Elite came out. I sold some here at tiVo Community, although I might have sold one or two on ebay, I can't remember. Since each Elite I was getting had four tuners which was replacing two, two tuner, Premieres. I wasn't trying to get an exorbitant value for them. Plus when the Elite first came out, the resale on the two tuner Premieres was higher than it is now.

    Yeah, it's find by time/find by channel, which I use ALL the time, even though I have zillions of SPs set up. (I often, not always daily, browse through prime time listings for my Favorites channels to find anything I missed.. heck, today I found one reality show premiering tonight that I want to check out.)

    I just browse via the guide but I understand.

    I hope you're not talking about "Siberia".

    Wish List and Browse By Time/Channel are the only non-settings screens which are not HD. I'm really hoping the next release will upgrade those to HD. If it does then to me the HDUI will essentially be complete.

    Heh, I only found out via reading articles online that that's a fake reality show (no pun intended).. I didn't watch my recording yet.

    When do we expect these to be available? I don't currently have a Tivo and I am considering getting a 2-tuner Premiere for the time being but I don't want to waste money if these will be coming out soon.

    I expect September availability based on the timing of the FCC waiver request, the FCC certification on the new RF remote, the pace of sales on current Series 4 hardware, TiVo's late August earnings release, and release dates of previous boxes.

    :D

    Seriously though all indications point to them targeting this fall. However the Mini was suppose to hit last fall and got delayed until March of this year, so you never know if they'll actually hit the target or not

    You also "expected" a $1.6 BILLION settlement from "MOTO alone."

    What's your point?:confused:

    Didn't work for me. I practically GAVE away my 2 premieres 6 months after release.

    Actually felt bad about sticking someone I knew with them, but they were warned ahead of time.

    Buyer beware and all that..l

    You are a fool if you practically gave away your TiVos.

    Really? Don't you people have anything better to do than start fires, and throw more gas on them? :rolleyes:

    I've seen the same three people in multiple threads, doing nothing more than either flame-baiting, name-calling, telling people to just leave, and/or throwing fuel on fires. That kind of behavior is prohibited, and I sincerely hope those breaking the rules get what should be coming to them.

    It's one thing to say "that was a dumb thing to do", as opposed to "you're an idiot". :thumbsdown:

    I'm not even the one under attack (in this instance). I'm sure that's about to change, though... Spare me the "just go away" and the other BS. The only way I'm leaving anywhere is if I want to, or I am kicked-out, by those with the power to make that happen.

    To keep somewhat on topic: I think something we should be asking TiVo for, in future updates and/or products, is the ability to pad a program in increments less than 1 minute. Usually, all I need is 5 to 15 seconds. If that were an option, I'd have no complaints about my programs either getting chopped at the end and/or losing anything important at the beginning of a program, due to padding the end of another one.

    EDIT/ADD: As suggested by others, in other threads, it would also be nice to start late, stop early, also with less than 1 minute minimums, as well as more shorter increments above 1 minute.

    Lifetime TiVos have always been able to get a decent price. The only TiVos I would consider that I almost gave them away were a couple of S3 boxes I had with upgraded hard drives(750GB) and no service. And even then I got around $140 for them back in May 2010. The Lifetime S3 boxes with upgraded hard drives(1TB) all sold for at least $425 back in May 2010.

    These are the prices I got on ebay. I just looked at my feedback list which shows the price the items sold for.

    I'm a fool for having a conscience? :confused:

    Sorry, but the Premire launch was a complete and total FAILURE!! It wasn't even Beta ready when they sprung it on us.

    The fact that you think I should have duped someone else because of my exuberance to own the "latest and greatest" says all anyone needs to know.

    Sad part is that TiVo lost a customer for life, and I lost a good friend.

    I started this thread and for what that is worth, I am not interested in it devloving into name calling. The point of this thread is to share information, knowlege and guesses about the next generation TiVo devices.

    I do not care if you liked the last TiVo launch and I do not care if you gave away our TiVo's. Not on topic and does not move the conversation forward.

    Go pick a fight some place else.
