    In this weekend flyer. "While Quantities Last". Must be some refurb units.

    Will this qualify the the current Tivo rebates?

    Ft. Thomas,...
    Understand that these are possibly refurb and definitely old model, but does TiVo really benefit from having its "brand" in a Big Lots circular?

    I picked one up on Sunday. They were new in box, and the model # matched the rebate, so we'll see

    Big Lots carry a lot of bigger brands. They just seem to get big left-over shipments from various places.

    So, does it really mean they will update the S2DT???

    If by "old model" you mean current model, then yes, that's exactly what they are. And I really really doubt that a discount store like Big Lots is going to sell refurb'd Tivos at full new retail price.

    Who even said it was a possibility?

    I picked up one of these yesterday. I have an older Series 2 and I wanted to replace it with a dual tuner so this deal worked out well for us.

    Everything on the unit looked new, it didn't appear to be a refurb. Is there any way to know for certain?

    Refurbed items at Big Lots have a sticker on them identifying them as refurbished

    I looked everywhere: Serial Number, Box, UPC sticker...etc. I didn't see anything that made me believe this box is a refurb. Pretty good deal for people who simply want to upgrade their box.

    There's no reason to believe it is a refurbished unit.

    It would be a good deal... if I could transfer the Lifetime sub from my existing S2. :(

    Ok, so I logged onto my Tivo account and I noticed that the Tivo I bought last year (during the Tivo Tasting Party) with a one year subscription was up yesterday.

    Is it possible for me to buy a new Tivo (the one that is free with a subscription plan is what I am looking at) and drop the one with the expired contract down to the multi Tivo plan price?

    MSD is now only available for new subscriptions. The only way to get an MSD rate on your current Tivo (after adding another) would be to cancel the subscription and then re-subscribe and commit to 1, 2 or 3 years.

    However, the new Tivo would be eligible for MSD right out of the gate because you have an existing Tivo being charged the full rate.

    It wasn't clear to me from the flyer, but the $69.99 price is the out-the-door price, and the rebate would take it below free. There are about a dozen at the local BL. Very tempting. Need to work a bit on the WAF first.
