Sorry for the delay getting back to you, we have been traveling.
No they did not offer anything but if you try requesting a perk they will give you something. I requested a credit on my account, they said they only thing they could do was credit of monthly charges, however since all my Tivos are Lifetime that didnt work the only other thing they could do was offer an Tivo accessory and the only thing I could even use was a Tivo Slide Remote (for the keyboard) so I got $70 value, but definitely not worth the effort I had to go through.
As a final note, I really do like the Elite or XL4 (when it is working):
For me, upgrading from the Series 3 gave me all the features of the Premiere and the features I really wanted, which are:
2TB Hard Drive
Multi Room Streaming (most of our cable channels are copy protected)
iPad App (which is great but some features only work with the Premieres) and allows you:
- Record Shows
- Set Up Season Passes
- Delete Shows
- Remote Control
- Plus Advanced Searching, View Guides, Now Playing, To Do etc.
So after all I went through I was really torn about buying a 2nd Tivo XL4, but I did, and it fired up and worked perfectly.
