    If they are being sold as "new" then they haven't been activated yet so my guess is no unless they also are giving you a pre 11/14 receipt from where they bought it. If they are used and have already been used and activated by someone then yes.

    Good Luck,

    So is it the policy that you need to show TiVo a receipt to prove when it was purchased? Is that part of the TOS?

    And again, when does all this come up when trying to register a newly purchased unit via TiVo's website? I mean, do I have to show a pre-11/14 receipt to my computer's camera? :confused::)

    When you buy direct from TiVo, it ships activated on your account with the plan you chose at time of checkout.

    And again, if you purchase a NEW unit from a 3rd party (like eBay), how does pricing get handled when you go to activate the unit online? In my case I'd be adding a 4th TiVo to the 3 I already have. I'd like to buy one on eBay for $100 or so and then pay $99/year for the service. I don't want to get stuck paying $19.99/month and that is my concern.

    If you don't want to pay the $19.99/month you can't use the TiVo web site, you must call. Then depending on the mood of the CSR you may or may not get something other than the $19.99/month price. People have reported everything from you must pay the $19.99 price no exceptions to for you I have a deal at the $9.95/month to Lifetime Service at $299 (some people have reported getting PLS at $199). Some people have called back a few times till they got a CSR that would/could give them a MSD price.
    Its like the lottery; so good luck.

    With practices like that and very confusing pricing plans to boot one wonders whether the company really wants to stay in business....

    For a new customer $0 down and $20/month may not be such a bad deal, look at what the cell phone co.s are charging for most data packages on top of the phone charge, no MSD there. You all should remember that the $20/month for two years gives you a full two year unlimited warranty, parts and labor in place of the now 90 day TiVo warranty. Even the TiVo 2 year $30 warranty is good for one exchange only. (not that i find I have ever had a TiVo go bad except the hard drive among my friends/family and myself and some of the TiVos are well over 5 years old, that about 40 TiVos)
