    I was using a Premiere and a Roamio in my bedroom. Dont ask why...I dont know. Anyway I cancelled service on the unit and got a $99 lifetime offer. Think theyll go any lower?

    It can be faster, just go to the Tivo's network settings and do a few Tivo service connections.

    AH! Nice. Should I check to make sure the box is activated on my account? As soon as I cancelled service it went over to "inactive devices".

    Which box did you get lifetime on? Did they offer that price on both boxes?

    The only box in this scenario is my Premiere4. I was gonna live with just the RoamioPlus . I wanted to lower my monthly expenses . I just bumped up my Xfinity package and also added HBOmax and all that adds up; three Tivos and 3 cablecards is $55 alone.

    This may be well known but...My Premiere which now has lifetime is very sluggish. Never mattered cuz I could always cancel. Now it is a little more important to me. I remember reading the hi def display is more taxing than the original or standard definition displays. Well, I switched and now this unit is snappy and satisfying. I searched on the sluggishness and dying hard drive was not listed as a cause. I wanna get at least a year out of that $99.

    Some time has passed and I can gladly say this old Premiere has not skipped a beat since switching menus. I was worried about the hard drive because of the way it was acting. I am now confident this unit has some life left in it.

    The Haxe rewrite made it significantly better, but the HD menus are still just a bit too much for the average Premiere to really keep up with. SD menus are the way to go if you don't really use streaming features. Now, I could only get the Series 3 style menus (with all the gaudy animations) into the Premiere, I'd be set.

    Has anyone ever "souped up" a Tivo? It is so common with computers and phones yet I never hear of a Premiere chip being replaced to speed it up. Then again I dont go to the developers forum at all.
