Bit surprised they don't offer a payment option for lifetime, but let you pay it off in pieces. I don't mean tiny pieces, they won't go for breaking it up into $10 chunks, but like 8 months of $50 each might be more doable for some people than a big block of $400 all at once.
Well there is already a way to pay the lifetime service off over that period of time, its a credit card. You are suggesting that tivo should give you an interest free loan for eight months and deal with the collection headaches if somone reneges on an installment several months down the line.

Plus they already have an option for people who can't afford the cost of lifetime up front, it's called monthly service. The whole point of lifetime is that they are trading you an entire lifetime of service in exchange for you paying the whole amount right now. Allowing you to pay it off over time defeats the purpose and makes it a worse deal for them. They use to offer a yearly service contract that was like $100/year which was a savings over the typical $12/mo, but had no residual value like lifetime.

Does anyone know when the "PLSR" code expires? The MSD-qualifying S2 on my account has gotten very shaky after a recent lightning storm.

I don't think anyone knows. The code has been around for years and still works.

I got the Lifetime MSD on my Roamio and was able to get $199 Lifetime on my Premiere XL4.

Not as good as the $99 we got on the Series 3, but much better than $399.
