Bought a Tivo Premiere XL4 12 months ago for $399 on a month to month plan @14.99/mo ($180 so far). Plus Two Tivo Minis w/ Lifetime @ $250 each. And probably spent another $200 wiring the condo for Cat 5. So I'm pretty heavily invested at this point.
My one year commitment is now up. The website is only offering Lifetime at $499 or $399 with a promo code, which isn't any different then what I was offered initially before spending $180 in monthly service charges.
I've heard the $199 number thrown around for Liftetime after 12 months. What does one have to do to get that? Just call support and ask? Do I have to threaten to cancel or any other games?
I'd love to get a Roamio at some point as my XL4 is really sluggish, but after spending close to $1300 so far, not ready to spend another $400 plus service. I'll wait till prices come down or they start offering deals to existing customers.
