    I previously spoke to a CSR and confirmed that that is true. I'm going to go with the monthly plan for at least the first 29 days, just in case (a) I decide it's not worth it after all, or (b) TiVo comes out with a deal on PLS.

    Looks like I don't have enough posts here to allow me to PM you but...

    "I swear on my life I have not received an AP code from any other source."

    I actually am an AP member but never got the special discount offer. Don't know how to contact Michaela directly. Been an avid TiVo user since 2005. Would love to get a nice upgrade deal on a Roamio Pro w/Life Service!

    First person to PM me can have it. I will be checking PM's in an hour or two (be patient for me to get back to you). If you PM me, please respond to this thread that a PM was sent so others will know not to PM me.

    All I ask is that your order is more than just a mini. Obviously TiVo has sent out these codes to beef up their sub numbers. So I ask that your order is for at least 1 roamio (preferably a plus or pro, throw tivo a bone) and 1 mini.

    Thought I would share what happened with my order. I called in having a code for AP, but called them based on the Roamio Upgrade offer that is featured online and when you call in.

    They started my order. I got a Roamio Plus transferring service from my Premiere 4 2 tuner. I was quoted $324.99. Added 2 mini's. Gave them my AP code. Dropped the Plus to $299.99. Both mini's dropped to $24.99. They will be here on Tuesday/Wednesday. She then before I hung up offered me the lifetime $99 on the soon to be transferred Premiere box.

    This was better than trying the order online myself from what I could figure out.
    If all goes well I will have 2 Premiere boxes for sale with lifetime the 2nd week of Feb.

    I wasn't offered the $99 lifetime on the TiVo HD I will be "retiring" to transfer service to my new Roamio. But the TiVo HD is still active until I receive the Roamio and call in to activate it by transferring service.

    Do folks think I will be offered the $99 lifetime at that time or will I be successful if I request it? I already have $99 lifetime on an old Series 2. Other TiVos on my account are a Premiere with annual service and a 2nd TiVo HD with the $6.95 monthly plan.

    I was having the exact same issue so I emailed Michaela and she asked me if I was using the Multi-Service Discount (MSD). I wasn't so my price was the same as offered in the paper snail mail offer. I also couldn't find any way to add the MSD so I called Tivo sales. This led me into an annoying odyssey that had a great ending.

    I spoke to a female who took my order, applied the MSD and gave me a a final price for Pro + lifetime for $870.98. When I got the confirmation email, the price showing was $899.98, a $29 increase.

    I called back and spoke to a male and told him what happened. He tried several things to change this including canceling the order (long story) and placing a new one. Bottom line, (he thought) he let the original order go through at the higher price and said he was sending me a $100 refund resulting in a $71 savings to me and a price of $799.98.

    Yesterday I looked up my order history and saw my 2009 purchase of two S3's and the new order and then I noticed the status of the new order was "Canceled". I called Tivo and got another male. After over 20 minutes of back and forth, he couldn't find any way to fix this and transferred me to a supervisor.

    He was also having problems and finally made this offer. Go to Best Buy and buy a Pro and then get back to him and he will activate the box and give me lifetime for $199. I went straight to Best Buy and bought a Pro for $599.98 and then got back to the supervisor. I wound up with the Pro + lifetime for $799.98 except that he told me I was still getting the $100 refund to make the final price $699.98.

    Today I moved the cable card from the S3 to the Pro and had it paired so I should be all set...but nooooo...another odyssey began...more in another note.

    You need to call Tivo with your code and get the MSD included.

    I never used my AP promo code, but during one of the attempts to fix the mess I had, a rep was unable to apply my code because it came up as already used (for the canceled order).

    I'm overdue for a good functioning Tivo, so if anyone has a promo code that wont be used, I'd greatly appreciate to receive and use it. Please PM me, thank you.

    What I need here are either answers or directions to better places to ask these questions.

    With my Roamio Pro all set up and cable card paired Tivo Central has a new look with the first drastic changes since my first Sony Series 1 unit in 1998. I am a bit lost.

    I am trying to set up my new season passes and it doesn't look easy. There doesn't seem to be an option to Find Shows by Time or Channel. So far, the only way I have found to search for shows is the Search feature in which I have to use the remote to spell out the name of each show in order to get a season pass. There has to be a better way.

    Right now the indicator shows the Pro is recording three shows which I believe are Wheel of Fortune, Duck Dynasty and Cash Cab. The Wheel and Duck recordings are fine, but when I attempt to watch any Cash Cab recordings they don't work.

    One is in progress and 2 are alreay recorded. If I attempt to play any one of them and click on Play, I am instantly asked if I want to delete this recording or keep it. I choose keep, but I can't watch them.

    I have no idea which other shows will have this same problem.

    I was one of the folks who put in the order for the $399 Pro on Amazon through their Marketplace partner Etailz on 1/11, only to have it cancelled two days later. I decided to try Amazon chat and see if I could talk them into giving me the Amazon dynamic pricing at the time I ordered of $433.59.

    After several back and forth discussions ("Amazon's policy is not to price match Marketplace prices" | "I'm just asking you to price match your own price" | blah, blah, blah ...), I mentioned that I had a screenshot of the Amazon page showing the Etailz offering (showing 12 items in stock) and the Amazon price in the lower right corner. I also offered to send it to him if he would like.

    The Amazon CSR moved in my direction then - "What would you like me to do for you?" I said I would like to buy the Pro for the discounted Amazon price shown in the screenshot.

    Waiting a couple of minutes, then "Order the item right now, give me the order number, and I will discount it to the Marketplace price." I was surprised, but just to make sure I said "and that would be $399.99?" Another few seconds and he came back with "Yes".

    So with CA tax, it came to about $436 and I was extremely happy. Gotta love Amazon. :up:

    I've had some pretty good luck recently playing CSR roulette. Ask me how I managed to get free shipping from Tivo on a Slide Pro remote that's arriving today.

    I almost bought a plus from ABT this afternoon, but thought I'd check this thread one more to see if anyone has an unused code they are willing to give me.
