Dang, I knew I should have kept that box. You haven't had it for a long time and you're not the original owner so that eliminates those as selection criteria.

Highly doubtful since this is a bundle price.

I did not get this offer in email, just saw it on the forum. I tried it, inputting the number of my 9.5 year old S2 lifetime unit, my one and only TiVo. It said the number was invalid. So I called and was told that I qualified. I asked whether I could substitute the slide remote for the wireless G adapter, or get a factory renewed unit for $79 instead of the regular $99. Was told no. Called back and spoke to someone else who told me the same thing: the terms could not be altered at all. So I went ahead and took the deal over the phone. Thanks to this forum for the info about the deal.

I also asked whether I could order a second unit under the offer, and was told no.

I received this offer in my inbox. I've had my S2 since Jan of 2005 and finally upgraded using this offer!

I would prefer the slide remote too, and had also thought about asking about factory renewed for 20 less.

I bought 2 TiVo Premiere 320gb units from Best Buy for about $96 each out the door. And then bought 2 lifetime subs for them for $400 each. I'm a new TiVo user.

Is this the best deal I can get at this time?

If you didn't already have a TiVo, how did you manage to get the first lifetime for $399 instead of $499?

Has anyone tried this with an inactive Tivo? My mother discontinued her Tivo S2 service when Comcast made the switch to all-digital, maybe this would be a good deal for her.

Go to the link and plug in her TSN and see.

My only Tivo is a 5 year old S2DT (month-to-month), and I'm getting the invalid message. Ah well, it's unlikely I would have dropped $400 on a new one anyway.

It asks for a TSN, so I'm assuming it does limit.
