They wouldn't do it for me. I have a basement full of TiVos and they wouldn't do it even for the Toshibas and Pioneers that have 3 day lifetime. You would think they would like to get $99 from me rather than nothing, as I don't ever plan on paying $399 for lifetime for them or paying the monthly fee. The way I understand it, if you have a TiVo that you threaten to cancel service, that is when they usually offer lifetime for $99. And also sometimes they will send you a email if you have one registered on your account without lifetime and you are paying a monthly fee.
