I want to buy a non-MSD lifetime for my Roamio, and use the PLSR code to get the same $100 off that I get from the MSD. However, it seems like Tivo's system won't allow this. When I try to activate online, there's no non-MSD option. And calling them resulted in the same no-go.
Is there some way to accomplish this? I want a non-MSD on my Roamio so that it saves me issues down the line if/when I buy another TiVo or some Minis and want to get those activated.
Selling the S3 will not remove it from your account.
The new owner transferring it to their account will remove it from yours, of course.
Sounds like what you need to do is specifically tell TiVo to remove the S3 from your account now (tell them you sold it if you have to), then buy the non-MSD lifetime for the new TiVo.
Then if you need both TiVos running on the same network for a while to transfer some shows or something, tell 'em the buyer returned it to you and cancelled the sale and that you need it added back to your account.
Then when you really sell it, tell them you found a different buyer.
Are you anticipating using the Roamio as an MSD anchor down the road?
(and are you sure they'll honor the PLSR code when you lifetime it?)
