    It's only 7 bills plus tax for a Pro if you use the eBay coupon. That's a new one and then it's 39 for 3 year warranty. So ~770 out the door.

    Initially lifetime won't work when you try to change the plan online, only Annual service will. I think you "may" be able to go back in again, after the annual takes effect, and try to switch that then to lifetime. Not 100% sure though.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I was a little hesitant to use the ebay codes, but it sounds like both options would work. I would prefer to have a new unit, I am just concerned about long-term issues.

    Dave, I went back in online to upgrade mine to Lifetime and it was telling me that lifetime would start after my one year service plan ends. Maybe an actual call to a TIVO agent could get them to consider a partial refund on my current annual to apply to the lifetime.

    I didn't actually make any changes at this point because I don't plan to fork over any more dough.

    Possibly new user to TIVO. Does this deal work for someone that has never had TIVO??

    I'm thinking of switching to my local cable service and providing my own TIVO since they've hamstrung theirs.

    Thanks, good to know.

    The only deals I know of that don't work for everyone are the 10 year loyalty deal and of course multi-service discounts (MSD). Any other deal you should be good to go. What specific deal are you referring to?

    The $99+19/month Tivo Roamio Plus deal. And after reading here, converting that 19/month to an annual. Seems to be a very good deal to me.

    That deal is good for anyone, but it's for a refurb Roamio, just so you know. There's also the same deal for military and veterans, but there's some confusion as to whether those are refurbs or not. When I did that deal the CSR said they were refurbs too, but I told her nowhere on the site or in the terms for it did it mention refurb, like the regular refurb deal given to just anyone and if that was the case that's a pretty shady and crappy thing to do to our men and women who've sacrificed and served our country so honorably! (To pass off refurbs as new units as a "special deal" ONLY for military members, without specifically stating anywhere that they are in fact refurbished!)

    Do I understand correctly, purchasing Spherular's coupon code will result in a discount strictly for the combination of Roamio + lifetime service? It cannot be used on a Roamio that you've already purchased and now want to obtain a better discount on the lifetime service?

    Correct. I actually sent him/her a question to ask this a couple days ago. I was bummed.

    Ordered the Roamio Plus refurb and it should be here next week. Then I'll try to change to annual instead of monthly. Being a new customer I assume it will be $149/year vice the $129/year I'm seeing in this thread??

    I just called today. My S3 HD died finally. I was asking another question and ended up speaking to a sales rep. Bottom line I just got the Roamio Plus $399 lifetime $99.

    Sounds like you just got the 10 year loyalty deal. How long have you been with TiVo?

    I just ordered a Roamio from Walmart, and I'm a first time Tivo customer. It should be here Friday, and TWC is coming Sunday to hook up with cablecard. I'm pretty sure I want to go lifetime, and I want to use the PLSR code.

    When I activate, should I first go $14.99 per month, and then switch to lifetime using PLSR, or just begin with lifetime using PLSR?

    If you know that's what you want to do, just go with lifetime right off the bat. It has the same 30 day money back guarantee in case TiVo doesn't work out for you.
