    What snerd said. I explicitly asked this of a TiVo CSR a month-ish back and snerd's words are almost word-for-word what they said. Once purchased, it's your's to do with as you please (within the terms of service agreement).

    Called this morning, tried to get a Plus with Lifetime using the loyalty pitch. I’m a 15 year customer, won my first TiVo in 2000 during the Series 1 essay contest. (Will share my 250 word sitcom script starring a giant TiVo Plush Toy upon request.)

    Would prefer Plus to Pro, since I don’t really need the drive space. I know ... more is better, but sig other likes to “clean up” and delete the suggestions periodically, and an extra TB may make her crazy with clutter!

    No go on the Plus, they only offered the Cyber Monday deal, so I popped for the Pro with Lifetime for $599. And they threw in a slide remote when I asked. Still a pretty great deal!

    Moving to a new house with more rooms in a few months and will need to add Minis. Now it’s time to retire my old sturdy Premiere XL lifetime ... will sell on eBay.

    That's because the Plus sold out weeks ago.

    The Cyber Monday deal has refurb Plusses, so I was optimistic.

    I went for the Roamio Pro All In deal offered to me + free slide remote tonight to replace my Premiere XL4. With both Quick and Skip Modes coming to Roamio it was a no-brainer over a current Bolt. I don't do 4k or stream much at all. I imagine a Bolt Pro will cost 2x what I paid for the Roamio Pro.

    Rep I spoke with earlier today said that the $600 Pro w/Lifetime deal had been "extended by a day". Doesn't mean it won't be extended by more than a day, of course, but it is still active.

    And to reinforce that the free slide remote is at the discretion of the rep, when I asked about it after placing the order for the Pro (but before paying), she said "Aw, you spoiled the surprise! I'd already added that to your order."

    I should've just cancelled my order when they didn't include the Slide Pro, when I asked (*after* the order had been completed). (I was just too happy to finally have access to the $600 Lifetime'd Pro.)

    I'm thinking about canceling my OTA with lifetime order from Amazon. I have a Roamio pro and a mini on FIOS. My intention was to use the use the OTA as another DVR for broadcast and use it to stream/transfer shows from my roamio pro.

    The room I would set it up in does not have ethernet, so to use the MOCA connection I think I'm looking at another $50 for a MOCA adaptor.... is there any other way to get the roamio OTA connected to my network (on the cheap) if I'm using a COAX antenna?

    I had to ask for the Slide remote, first the rep said no, no longer offered. I persisted and rep went to ask about it and came back and said since I was a 2 year customer I could get it. I was happy with the Roamio Pro deal, esp since they raised All-in pricing. Amazed at 2 day delivery. I need to sell my XL4..

    One option would be to shop for a TiVo Mini on a discount and use *that* in the room in which you were looking to place the OTA, and put the OTA somewhere more convenient. That's what we're doing... using an OTA DVR to supplement our Pro's 6 tuners, but primarily use Minis to access all content.

    Or just shop for a cheap MoCA adapter. Done.

    I was just able to order a Roamio Pro with lifetime for $600, with a free slide remote, so the deal is still there to be had.

    I was finally pushed over the edge for this because Woot! has the TiVo Mini available again for $70.

    Is it confirmed that the Woot Refurb Mini has lifetime service?

    And for the newer folks, is the angle with the $35 OTA to have a unit to cannibalize for parts to keep a lifetime unit running? What can you use from it? Everything besides the motherboard?

    You also get a RF remote, that why I purchased my $25 OTA, sold the drive for $20, sold the rest of the chassis without the drive for $35 inc. shipping on E-Bay, great deal.

    Thank you! Passed this along to the friend I just bought a first TiVo for and he ordered three. This thread has saved him serious cash.
    IIRC it's mentioned in the listing.

    TiVo service required; not included. 1-year commitment.

    That is in the listing, so I would guess no.

    Actually I think that is in the Roamio OTA listing. I did not see that in the mini listing.

    But, it is a moot point as the Mini's are sold out now.

    [And, even if it were in the listing it may not actually be included: as those of us that purchased OTA's from Amazon recently found out - Amazon owns Woot!]

    What is the difference between the current 93000 version of the mini and the 92000 version sold on woot?
