    - $500 for a Roamio Pro is a tough find and if you do find it do you trust the retailer? $524 on amazon is a safer number in my opinion
    - $86 for mini on Amazon so you could save another $4 there
    - so savings would be more like $45 with the calcs I used above, but tax does come into it of course so that could be wiped out if you're in a high tax state.

    The key point is that everyone has their own calculations and what works for one person, does not work for another. I suggest a "buy it now" price of $400 on eBay as someone may want to buy multiple items. For others they are entitled to offer to pay less.

    As I said before I'm happy to consider all offers

    Do you know that 4 Minis will work--beyond being able to add them to cart and checkout? Will 5 or 6 Mini's work as well?

    What I'm getting at as these are supposed to be 1 dvr of choice and/or 1 Mini. Can anybody with experience vouch that ordering 4 (or Mini's) will actually net 4 (or more) Mini's DELIVERED?????

    There is a lot of talk about people getting stuff dropshipped from bestbuy...this site seems to do the same. Again not a risk I would take, but each to their own.

    For a start, 5 or 6 minis would be pointless unless you are ordering more than one base TiVo. They only support 4.

    In terms of getting 4 delivered, I have seen people getting 3 delivered - previous sellers on eBay have made this claim, but "knowing a guy who knows a guy" is not going to reassure you.

    As I said before, you know what you are getting when you order a code, you need to value it according to your potential saving and appetite to risk. Should you only want (or need) 1 tivo and 1 mini then you would offer a price for the code based on the savings quoted.

    Each individual's circumstances are different and the fact that there are only 2 codes on offer mean than some want to pay more to secure it.

    Worth noting is that the terms here state the offer is for each of the above - there is no "OR" so you could buy A Roamio Pro, Roamio Plus, Roamio DVR, Roamio Stream and 3 Roamio Minis (as it says one mini with a Roamio DVR)

    The terms are vague so it's understandable why they would let you buy more through the online shop. I'm sure TiVo don't mind you buying more for your own use, you may just have trouble with transferring them.

    have you looked at the "About Us"

    http://www.electronichotdeal.com/about-us/
    http://www.walts.com/about.php

    They are identical and the first has even left "Walts" in their text. This does not look like a legitimate seller. Just a warning if you were going to use them.

    Whois information is suspect too

    Did someone really just use the Buy it now for 400 bucks for the discount? :eek:

    yes they did...

    If you are new to TiVo and want the best discount, it is potentially the best way to do it. You know you are buying direct from TiVo after all.

    Yes, I can see that, especially if your making a whole-home purchase. However, you've just made out much better than the buyer (on a free code). In their best case scenario, you got 400 while they got 300 off. Who knows, maybe you could've got someone to buy it now for 500. People do the darnedest things.

    It's never as clear cut as that. There is risk on my side too, I'm sure I don't have to list them!

    There may be someone willing to pay more, but that person may take months to come forward...."A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush!"

    Yep, very aware. Especially if they try to claim the code wasn't valid after they use it.

    If it all clears, hats off to you!

    Well you did plus some

    your old equip sold for

    $612 + $400 coupon sale + next coupon

    they must have a lot of cash and they will buy multiple Roamio pro's and resell but you may get a return if Tivo declines the multiple purchases

    There are fees and shipping costs to factor in, but I should have covered my costs.

    A TiVo rejection is not really my fault. I declared in the auction that my liability ends at the point the code is sent. Should the buyer think differently then of course there may be problems - but that is my risk to manage

    I sold my XL4 and stream separately so you may have received a better amount!
