Do they have any deals for coming back to TiVo? My family left a few years ago because of a combination of Comcast launching HD in our area and the hard drive dying in the S2. I thought about ripping a hard drive out of an old PC, imaging it for the S2, moving it over to a new account, and plugging it in for a few days with an Ethernet cable to get the MSD on a new box, but I realized that was a ridiculous hassle for $100. I'm very dissatisfied with my new Media PC, and I want to come back to TiVo, but $900 for the 2TB TiVo is just pushing it a little, especially when I do have a functional (if annoying) quad-tuner DVR now.
When TiVo Mini comes out, I want to try and get my parents back on TiVo as well, as with Comcast's current pricing they would do well with a Premiere XL4 and Mini, and they would get XOD (Motorola system, I'm on an SA system). At that point could I activate it on my account with MSD, and then transfer it over to theirs to save the $100?
