    It still is, in dark corners of the internet where people think that reading is hard and politeness is more important than open conversation. Basically, the opposite of what everyone is actually using he internet for.

    Forums are like conversations. They should have the flow of a conversation. Sometimes that means something gets responded to repeatedly, but it keeps the conversation honest. That's the cost.

    It's hardly a big deal to scroll past a 2 line response that someone else has already responded to.

    No, it's not laziness. Laziness is where I think "I could do that, but I don't want to cause it seems hard." It's a choice I've made for how I read and respond to threads. A choice a lot of people have made. If you don't like it, by all means, go away.

    Sheesh, it's been pushed back that far? How are they showing it at CES, originally targeting Q1, and end up pushing it all the way back to JUNE? I mean, that's not just missing a target, that's not even being on the same field.

    I had this same issue. I had to clear my cookies completely. I just used the developer tools (F12) to do it, but it might be easier to go into settings and do it from there.

    Roamio and Mini arrived last night, BTW. Both were setup in less than an hour.

    Moving the CC from the Premiere to the Roamio gave me basic channels, but had to call to re-pair to get the HD and premium channels. TWC cable-card call center was very knowledgeable. MUCH better than it was back when I got my S3, when I was basically teaching THEM how to do it and better than in 2012 when I got my premiere... it was fine in 2012, but not as easy as it was night night. 2-thumbs up.

    The mini was in a reboot loop for 2-3 times, but then got setup easy enough. Generally a slick device.

    I'm a little bummed that I can't get any videos off of the S3. We just put the premiere in a closet with power and ethernet, and we can stream our shows off of it until they are all gone, and copy over anything without the flag set. But the S3 is basically locked down with only a few things able to be copied across. Bummer.

    A spade is a spade....you said yourself that you go "back to front". I guess "back to front" means you don't read any previous posts... By any definition, that's lazy. I won't clutter this thread with any more comments on the matter.

    Like you said, it's a little difficult to determine how many tuners are actually in use from a distance. I like the individual lights on the Elite better. Not that it matters much with six tuners. :)

    I took my email with the code on it to my local Best Buy hoping for a price match because I too have some rewards that are expiring soon. The guy said they match TiVo, but when he read the email he said they don't match one-of-a-kind offers which this was. So no joy for me. Obviously, YMMV.

    filovirus, who was the big winner? Based on timing it looks like it could be a photo finish :).

    Was there someone here who had a code, who wanted anyone who was going to use it to pickup another mini for them? I can't seem to find that post anymore. Certainly willing to put in another item to the order..

    Emailing Michaela Logan from one of the AP panel survey emails I received in the past actually worked. After kindly requesting a code with a clevel, witty email emphasizing the many boxes of the past and loyal subscriber since early 2000...I was sent the AP code and ordered my Pro!

    It's lazy to refuse to respond to any more posts on this matter.

    It's cowardly to run away from a discussion...

    I mean, we can throw insults around all day if you want to. You lost the moral high ground a long time ago.

    You continue to have a very unique and very peculiar approach to netiquette. I've never heard anybody else claim that avoiding an off-topic flame war is bad etiquette!

    This offer should have been given to everyone who bought a premiere at launch. No one deserves it more than that group.

    ^ true. I've been on the beta program since the original series 3. Didn't get an email either.

    I did the same and she was nice enough to send along a code for me as well. Very nice of her to do.
