Curious if others have done that?
Sure especially since you get the cheaper mostly rates as the new boxes have a higher monthly rate now. I got my new Roamio transfered to my old HD for the same monthly you described, I have a Premiere that I would love to get lifetime on but I will have to wait a few more months until it's contract is over.
Nice part is that the my new Roamio is that it doesn't have a service commitment and it's locked in under the old monthly rate which you typically can't get, as it's either $12.99 with a one year commitment or $19.99 with no commitment.
The new TiVo monthly fees are nuts! I believe they are encouraging more people to buy lifetime service as it's becoming a better deal, I plan on buying it more emails Roamio when money permits.
It appears to get the $99 lifetime offer, you have to have had monthly service for at least 3 years on the TiVo you are trying get lifetime on.
