    I have just noticed that the £49 activation fee on 500gb TiVo is now being waved with some bundles.

    Colin's sandwich envy moment I think.

    Anyone else regret being an early adopter?

    PS It gets worse - 1TB TiVo activation fee is now down to £49 only!

    However if you read the small print you still have to pay £49 installation fee. Therefore nothing has actually happened with regards to the price.

    Not bothered, there's a reason why they call them EARLY adopters :)

    You pay to get it early, if you wait you get it cheaper.

    No matter the gadget, has always been, and t'will always be...

    Have 'overpaid' for most of the gadgets I've ever had, call me gullible if you want to, but I like to get it asap, albeit for a premium.. :p

    Indeed. I probably would too, if I had the money :)

    It looks like the free 500gb Tivo is offered to existing customers too?
    When I selected to add an additional Tivo it was only suggesting I would pay the £49 installation fee.
