For the basic the coupon is just ROAMIO and it takes $10 off.
You threw a scare into me. I ordered last night before the message. Customer support told me my unit should be shipping in 20 minutes, should get it no later than Wednesday.
In that case you're better off taking the $50 discount from the free stream code and ordering direct from TiVo.
Only if there is a way to upgrade ourselves. If not then you'll have to wait for Weaknees to offer drop in drives and likely pay a premium for that.
Would there be any warranty concerns with buying/putting in a claim on a 3 year extended warranty if people purchase a modified box from Weaknees...since they have to open the enclosure to modify the DVR? Thinking of biting on a modified 2TB Plus.
WK may have been able to supersize the drive which would give added usable capacity.
It's really tempting to go with a Roamio Plus 3TB now but the price premium, even with coupon, is still very high.
Did JMFS offer supersize options? I haven't upgraded since the WinMFS days since I bought the XLs at launch and the Elite at the 2TB limit.
That would certainly void TiVo's warranty. I assume you'd be buying the Weaknees extended warranty which presumably doesn't have that problem.
If you buy lifetime I don't know if Weaknees' warranty qualifies for the free transfer of lifetime to a replacement box like Best Buy's warranty does.
Following that theme, I put in ROAMIOPLUS with the (you guessed it) Roamio Plus in my cart and it took off $25. Haven't pulled the trigger yet though....
And ROAMIOPRO is $40 off.
And I see the Weaknees warranty is not transferable. I did not realize that.
Here are the terms and conditions of their three year warranty.
The weeknees warranty can't be transferred, but I believe they do support the lifetime transfer.
Yes it did. I upgraded my Premieres in December 2010 and he had supersize working at that point. And I've stuffed my 2TB to the max so it definitely came in handy.
4TB from WD or Seagate? Or does it matter?
Western Digital doesnt make an 4TB AV drive yet that we know of.
A couple more negatives against the Basic are....
Only 10/100 Ethernet
I use my Elite as an Etherent bridge for the rest of my AV rack, so not having MoCa is kind of a big deal. i know an adapater is only $50 but that's another devices with a blinking light and a power brick I have to put into the rack. So I just bit the bullet and got a Pro. $560 with coupon from Weaknees.
Just as an FYI cause i haven't seen it posted elsewhere -
Got my Roamio Pro yesterday and set it up today. In System info, it states "up to 476 HD hours"
So doesn't look like weaknees supersized the drive. Looks like Tivo is actually underselling the available space?
