    Not on a "used" Tivo. But that probably isn't what you meant to say.

    Yep that's what I meant, so no trial for used? Or at least just purchase a month, from what I've seen here it's a year commitment or year in advance.

    If by used. you mean a deactivated TiVo bought on ebay, I added such a TiVo HD to my account last week and the status on tivo.com is:

    30-day Money back guarantee period. You can only change your current plan.

    The 30 day guarantee is for new subscriptions, not just new Tivos - Always has been.

    Interesting. I bought a supposedly new Premeire for spare parts and the System Info screen said to contact Tivo to activate but it wouldn't let me activate it online.

    Online it's $10 a month for month to month, what are the odds if I call and ask for $99 lifetime?

    652 was thinking something (99 LT) might be attached to box that would not show up on web site.

    What you need to do is find out if the estate still had an active sub on the box, and if so, get them to threaten to cancel to see if they can get the $99 offer.

    Or get the estate to buy a Premiere.:)

    Then I guess you'll have to buy the Premiere.:)

    Actually if you have nothing newer than a Series 2 currently on your account, you might be able to get the deal for a 320GB Premiere with lifetime for $399

    Whether you could leverage that recent Premiere purchase into $99 lifetime on the S3 afterwards I don't know, but before you actually add the S3 to your account, you could call and ask, and if they say yes, well, once they're lifetimed, they're lifetimed, and you could keep the S3 and sell the Premiere.
