    So I just used mine to get the Pro. I currently have a Series III and HD both in the living room with an A/B remote. My plan in the short term is to move the cable card from the HD to the Romio, move all my season passes to the Romio and return the 2 cards from the Series III.

    I just upgraded and I have no offer, so that would make sense to me.

    I got the offer. I haven't upgraded. I probably only fill out about 2/3 of the surveys.

    I do every survey and I've never once won the prize nor did I get the coupon. :(

    I pulled the trigger on a TiVo Roamio Pro with lifetime. I did have some problems with MSD and the AP code, so I had to call. The CSR ended up giving me a better deal (by $25) on the whole thing than I would have gotten with the AP code.

    There will be a TiVo Premiere 4, WD Expansion Drive, and TiVO Stream posted in the eBay forums early next week ;)

    Me too.

    Like others, I suspect the offer did not go out to Roamio owners.

    Our average keep time is around 2 years... 2.5 at the max.

    Dan, I'm glad you came into this thread because you offer some great perspective. And I appreciate that!

    I'm not really sure how best to answer your question regarding "what would I do if I had a lifetime TiVo" as I can't see as how that would ever be the case. But, for discussion purposes, I would treat it as I have all the other units we've had over the years. It would be donated or given to someone in the family.

    In our family, we don't really sell things we own. I mean, there have been exceptions, but on the whole.. we just give them to someone else. Either a family member, school, community rec center, etc. We do this with furniture, electronics, cars, appliances (you get the idea :) )

    What are your reasons for keeping them for such a short period of time?

    I've had my TiVoHD for about 6 years now. I like getting my monies worth out of things and have seen no compelling reason to upgrade till now. I am seriously thinking if getting a Romio and will probably pull the trigger on this deal.

    (Just trying to understand. Not criticizing.)

    Not sure what flyer you're referring to? I have flyers, but none of them offered the same price as the AP deal. The AP deal, from what the letter says, is the best deal TiVo is offering right now across the board.

    I've had this happen in the past as well.

    The Advisory Panel is more about viewing choices, lifestyle, showcases and thoughts about shows and commercials. It's an invitation-only research panel. It's not really tied into hardware. My neighbor got the AP offer and he has owned a Roamio for quite a while. I think people confuse the AP with the TiVo Field Trial (which is different).

    No worries at all waynomo :)

    It's just our lifestyle, basically. We like to trade-up as new items become available. Mind you, the units are perfectly fine and in great working order but as technology changes, we opt for newer models. As for getting our monies worth, we usually get the item at a great price (for instance, the AP Roamio PRO).

    Ziggie - TiVo did a mass mailing on their current TiVo offers. I received the heavy stock folded in 2 offer yesterday. The deals are not as good as the AP offer.

    The funny thing is my wife saw the mailing and asked why I hadn't upgraded. I didn't even consider it because I didn't think she would want to spend the money. So that got me to look at this thread and pull up the AP offer.

    So the flyer did help if not exactly in the intended way.

    From what I can tell waynomo, the flyer is basically the same as the November email offer that went around right before the holidays (it expires 1/31 I believe). It was a nice offer, a very colorful bi-fold, but it was still not as good as the AP. And yay for your wife! ;) I guess you'll both be enjoying a new Roamio soon! :up:

    I've been on the panel for AGES and have not gotten the email. I'm feeling quite left out :(

    I emailed Michaela for a code too, we'll see if I get one. However, in thinking about it I think I would just end up buying the base Roamio and Lifetime as I replace my 2 existing premieres so the deal won't do me much good. I already have a mini and don't think I need any more. So if I do get it, I will share it here.

    It was so easy to upgrade my Roamio hard drive and I love knowing we can do OTA if we ever cut the cord. Add the tiny size of the box and it's a win win for me. I just have to keep reminding myself I don't need the bigger boxes ;)

    Would love a code to order a mini, if anyone has an extra they aren't using. I recently upgraded to the Roamio and am selling my 2 tuner premier. Thanks.
