You should plead your case with Michaela and see if you can snare one. They seem to be making a push for the FY numbers. Who knows, you might get lucky

This wasn't a beta program gift, but that is kind of strange, isn't it? Random nonsense like what movies I (never) watch in the theater or what types of "spirits" I (never) drink are worth as much as $200, but beta testers who put in the time and work of massaging out sometimes buggy-ass software just get trinkets.

You don't avoid an off topic flame war by insulting someone, then refusing to respond to them anymore.

That's like sucker punching someone, then running away. I don't know where you live, but where I live, that gets you in some trouble.

Did you have to call someone to get more than one mini? I imagine the web site wouldn't allow such a thing with a single code.

That would also make me think you've signed up for five $6.95/month Mini subscription fees when they ship out.

Being able to order more than one Mini is nice, though needing to more than one $6.95/mo subscription is an issue if you're not bringing them all up to speed at once.

I know there's one very infrequently used Premiere XL in my house that I'd like to give to a relative and replace with a Mini, though that would leave only one more Premiere that I'd like to replace with a Mini, just not yet. If I could buy two Mini units at $25/each and not activate them or cancel them after a month's time, then I'd buy the second one and put in storage until I could cycle out the other Premiere XL with a Mini. Otherwise, I'd just buy the single Mini.

You'd be surprised - it was fairly expensive order But, you can mix and match lifetimes and monthly. They're all priced 24.99. The monthly cancellation in the first 30 shouldn't be handled any different. I am anxiously waiting to see if my order ship. Not sure why it wouldn't - I've done my part to bump their subscriptions for Q4

Try another Best Buy.

I saw that also. Assuming it is the same current Romeo deals from the flyer they mailed and the Premiere offers they have been running for awhile. Wouldn't really expect anything other than that but if i am wrong let me know.

I could see them putting the kibosh on a 5 item order, though 2 I don't see them doing much to stop.

Hopefully it'll ship and you'll be Mini'd all over the place.

I just called the 800 Tivo phone number with the unique promo code which netted (before tax) $799 for Pro with Lifetime. Just wondering how good a price that is, as I'm on the fence since I purchased a Premiere a bit over 2 years ago. Would love some opinions before the 1/31 deadline.

I plan to give the old Premiere to a friend but just wondering if I wait 6 months or a year folks think the prices will drop significantly on the Roamio Pro.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply Griffith. Maybe you'll receive a letter tomorrow (fingers crossed!)



Just speaking for myself, I've never dropped in a larger drive. I don't open the units but just use them as I bought them.



Are you happy with your Pro?



I disagree with this. I don't hold onto the unit long enough for a lifetime plan to be beneficial.
I have enjoyed almost 15 years of use out of my lifetime Tivo sub. Got it in 1999 with my Series 1 and it is now on a TivoHD unit.

However, the folks here, generally, love to purchase EWs, despite the logic of them. In a similar way, many pay Tivo monthly service for years not realizing the benefit of lifetime service. These folks are probably subsidizing my fees, so I should probably shut up now.
With lifetime service an ew might be a good idea. Should guarantee saving money on the lifetime.

Deadline is only 3 days away. Anyone have AP promo code that they aren't going to use? I sure would appreciate it. I would even heavily discount my 1 year old lightly used XL4 for you if you are interested. If anyone has a code they aren't going to use this may be a way of picking up an XL4 on the cheap. PM me, thanks.

Called and told them I wanted to use my Premier instead of a Mini (which is true) and then purchase a Pro /w the code, but that I wanted Premier at $99 lifetime. They did it without a moment's pause. Might have to do with being a subscriber since 2000, but either which way, really nice rep and went smoothly.

Her response asked me if I was getting the MSD. I wasn't and I have gone through the process again and never saw any way to ask or apply for the MSD.

Where is it?

OK, disregard this, I called the number from the promo and the MSD was added knocking another $100 of the price. My pro will get here this week.

This just got even better. After placing my order, I got the confirmation email showing a price $30 higher that what was quoted to me on the phone. They are now giving me a $100 refund making my final price $70 less than it was.

So your Premier was on a monthly plan or did it have a Lifetime subscription?

I have a series 1 and a TiVoHD with lifetime. I wondering if there's anyway for me to swap the Lifetime.

The history is a long one. I've never had lifetime. I started with a S1, eventually added a S2, swapped the S1 to an HD, and then swapped the S2 to a Premier

Started with S1 - monthly

Added S2 - monthly (this made S1 & S2 both a multi-service discount)

Added an HD, removed the S1 (this swapped the S1 subscription to the HD)

Added a Premier, removed the S2 (this swapped the S2 subscription to the Premier) and sort of threatened to close the HD down. When I did this, they grandfathered the HD into a $7 rate. The Premier was at $14/mo.

Today, when I called I just flat asked for the $99 lifetime for the Premier. They said yes and mentioned "because the Premier is over 5 years". Not sure that it really matters or not. The Premier is obviously not 5 years itself, but the subscription was.

They also claimed I'll be able to transfer the $7 rate from the HD to the Roamio. I'm a little skeptical of this, but will try.
