    You should plead your case with Michaela and see if you can snare one. They seem to be making a push for the FY numbers. Who knows, you might get lucky

    This wasn't a beta program gift, but that is kind of strange, isn't it? Random nonsense like what movies I (never) watch in the theater or what types of "spirits" I (never) drink are worth as much as $200, but beta testers who put in the time and work of massaging out sometimes buggy-ass software just get trinkets.

    You don't avoid an off topic flame war by insulting someone, then refusing to respond to them anymore.

    That's like sucker punching someone, then running away. I don't know where you live, but where I live, that gets you in some trouble.

    You can buy more than one mini in my experience. :)

    Did you have to call someone to get more than one mini? I imagine the web site wouldn't allow such a thing with a single code.

    The website will allow it. Got an order with 5 in queue. Hasn't shipped yet (nor cancelled), I'll report back.

    That would also make me think you've signed up for five $6.95/month Mini subscription fees when they ship out.

    Being able to order more than one Mini is nice, though needing to more than one $6.95/mo subscription is an issue if you're not bringing them all up to speed at once.

    I know there's one very infrequently used Premiere XL in my house that I'd like to give to a relative and replace with a Mini, though that would leave only one more Premiere that I'd like to replace with a Mini, just not yet. If I could buy two Mini units at $25/each and not activate them or cancel them after a month's time, then I'd buy the second one and put in storage until I could cycle out the other Premiere XL with a Mini. Otherwise, I'd just buy the single Mini.

    You'd be surprised - it was fairly expensive order ;) But, you can mix and match lifetimes and monthly. They're all priced 24.99. The monthly cancellation in the first 30 shouldn't be handled any different. I am anxiously waiting to see if my order ship. Not sure why it wouldn't - I've done my part to bump their subscriptions for Q4 :D

    They did tweet the following earlier "Call the #TiVo call center to learn more about an amazing limited time offer! Sale ends 1/31 so call 877-289-8486 NOW"

    I saw that also. Assuming it is the same current Romeo deals from the flyer they mailed and the Premiere offers they have been running for awhile. Wouldn't really expect anything other than that but if i am wrong let me know.

    I could see them putting the kibosh on a 5 item order, though 2 I don't see them doing much to stop.

    Hopefully it'll ship and you'll be Mini'd all over the place.
