I recently ordered a Premiere with lifetime sub from TiVo to replace my S3 HD XL. My subscription is up in mid May and the recent update to the UI on the Premiere combined with a deal by Tivo convinced me to make the jump. Now I'm debating on what to do with my S3 HD XL.. It is on the yearly $129 plan and is active until May 20th. Part of me wants to sell it with the remaining subscription to entice a buyer to get on the $129/yr plan. TiVo made it clear if I cancelled the sub (offered partial refund on sub) that the new buyer would only be able to sign on at $19.99 / month or lifetime sub - decreasing the box's attractiveness significantly. The other part of me wants to keep the 1tb hd for my new premiere and get a refund for the partial sub - that would yield about the same amount that the S3 would yield on ebay. Then sell the box for parts for $70-80 without a HD. When I call to cancel the S3 service, if offered a lifetime sub for $99 (which I know was offered at one point to upgrading customers) I'd obviously prefer that. Not sure if that is still happening. So what's the general advice?
