    Your old S2 will kick into monthly billing automatically. It should be at the 6.95 rate but occationally you have to call and get the discount.

    With this in mind and the Series 2 not really being used I'm thinking of doing the unthinkable and getting rid of it in favor either of nothing or a cable co. dvr.

    many people have reported that they had to call and agree to a 3 yr contract for the $6.95. You'd better call if you want to pay less than $16.95.

    Actually they're also reporting that when they call to cancel service on the old unit that customer retention offers $6.95 no commitment term. Where's that thread?

    The other thing you should be able to do is get the S2 on the 6.95 / month plan, and then purchase a TiVoHD at 250 (amazon) - 279 (costco) - 299 (retail) and switch the service to the TiVo HD box.

    great way to get 2 addl HD tuners....
