    Keep in mind that, out of the current boxes, only the TiVo Premiere has OTA tuners. The Premiere 4 and Premiere XL4 only support digital cable, no OTA.

    They also don't support analog. So if your cable company is like mine and still has a handful of channels that are analog only then a 4/XL4 will not be able to actually record those channels.

    I thought by law all transmissions have to be digital. :confused:

    There are also some low power TV stations in isolated areas that are still transmitting analog signals; they have until September 1, 2015 to convert to digital. (See http://www.fcc.gov/guides/low-power-television-lptv-service for further info if you're curious.)

    ..and technically, not for OTA entirely.. There are SMAALLLLLLL stations that can supposedly still be analog.

    For all practical purposes, yes.

    If I buy an S2 or S3 off Craigslist, do you think I could qualify for the offer? I'm thinking about the S2 offer in particular for $400. Is it for all S2 owners or is it targetted? Thanks.

    As far as I know, you have to receive an offer from Tivo.

    I got no love from TiVo yet.

    I often get offers from them in my inbox...wonder if it'll come my way?

    I've got a series 2 here on lifetime and a series 3 here with lifetime that's just sitting unhooked to anything. Of course I got a 4XL too with lifetime. I would seriously consider updating the 3 if I got the offer.

    C'mon TiVo, send me some lovin!

    I also have an S3 w/lifetime that's not hooked up. I'm wondering if I haven't gotten the offer because it hasn't called home in a while. I may connect it today.

    Bad news...I just chatted online with a TiVo rep and he told me that the offer to upgrade a series 3 was only being made to owners who do not also own a premiere.

    I got the offer in connection with an S3 HD I've had for about a year, and while I wouldn't mind $99 lifetime on it, I really don't think I want a Premiere of any flavor.

    I wonder if they'd let somebody else pay for it and ship it to them.

    Just get them to ship it to you, and then forward it along. If you make it complicated for the CSR the odds of an error greatly increase.
