    I have one on my account with a 6/25/1999 activation date. I think that is close to the record, assuming it isn't a mistake by TiVo.

    fred2,

    Sounds like you took advantage of the $199 lifetime transfer from your S2 to the S3 in which case they really did transfer it (including original activation date). My 2 S3 OLED's have the activation dates of my S1's (June 2000 and May 2002) while the S1's have the "activation" date of the S3's (January 2007 and February 2007) as they got 1 free year of service as part of the transfer.

    Are the Roamio Basics completely gone? All I see are people talking about the Plus.

    I called this morning an got the Roamio Plus with lifetime and the slide remote for 450. My oldest TiVo is from 2002, so the CSR just used the 10 year loyalty program.


    They did offer the Roamio Basic, but the lifetime is 199 for it, so it's only 50 more to get the Plus.

    They're still available, but the lifetime isn't $99 on those. The Roamio basic is $199 and lifetime on that is $199.

    If you're asking about the refurb deal that was being offered previously, that deal ended.

    Plenty of Americans drop $1k to $3k upgrading smartphones, tablets, DVRs, TVs, stereo systems each year. Some of them can even afford it. I'm a value conscious consumer that can afford the new Bolt, but the hump and the white color are deal breakers for me.

    I had a Roamio with lifetime in my cart for about 3 weeks, waiting to see what the Bolt might bring, but I messed up and didn't pull the trigger. Now the deal is gone.

    Does anyone have the cablecard version with lifetime they'd be willing to part with? Bummed I missed it, the CSR I spoke with said to check Amazon, but I only found the OTA versions. . . .

    Thanks,
    Joel

    Ah, and I can't pm Morbidz b/c of my post count, but anyone else that has one still, would love to pick one up, would paypal and pay shipping costs. . . Looking for the cable version with lifetime.

    Looks like the Roamio with cablecard and lifetime are not readily available on Amazon, (the CSR at Tivo said to try there). Any other suggestions?

    thanx

    I was just able to get this deal! Roam Plus with Lifetime for $449 + Slide Remote. The rep said that my account didn't qualify because I already have a Roamio on my account. I had him check my mother's account (it's for her anyway), and he said that she was good. She has a TiVo HD that was activated in 2009.

    For the remote, I asked if the deal comes with a Slide remote at no cost. He said no, but he could always add it on.

    I like the $99 Lifetime charge, too, and would like it even more if I could take advantage of it, but don't have the years as a direct TiVo customer... just 8 months, plus 13+ years as a DirecTiVo customer.

    As for your case, the $99 Lifetime "loyalty" deal only applies to the Roamio Plus & Pro, which lack OTA capability; the "loyalty" Lifetime deal for the OTA-capable basic Roamio is $200, and I'm not even sure it's available for the Roamio OTA. You *could* call to find out. That said, the $200 "loyalty" Lifetime fee is on top of the retail price for the unit, which is $200 for the base Roamio, bringing the total to $400.

    If you can get TiVo to apply the $200 "loyalty" Lifetime fee to a $50 Roamio OTA, I think many would like to hear it.

    Haha, thanks, not sure if I ever logged in, but I'll check. Since I haven't been a subscriber, I can't get the lifetime deals you guys have been getting, so that was the big appeal to me, cheap in, and cheap lifetime. . .

    Does this apply only to purchases direct from Tivo? No way to purchase from Amazon and then pay Tivo $99 for lifetime? Thanks!

    Nope. This deal is only on units purchased directly from TiVo.
