    So you are saying as long as you activate by 1/31/07 you can pay the $199 and do the transfer at any point in the future? I agree it is not clear, but that seems doubtful. (And a risky chance to take. Not to mention more expensive.)

    After 30 days of activation, you cannot cancel without early termination penalty. When the S3 has active service, you cannot initiate the VIP transfer.

    All I am saying is that the terms and conditions that they posted leave a lot to interpretation.

    I certainly would not want to depend on it after 1/31/07...

    I don't believe that is correct. You should be able to do VIP transfer within the first 30 days of activation. And someone even reported doing the transfer after 30 days here.

    Within 30 days, the S3 service is canceled first. After 30 days, that's an exception allowed by the CSR. Don't count on it.

    (I presume the person meant $799 instead of $899.)

    But technically, at the very beginning, they didn't know that you could have purchased a S3 "at today's prices", because Tivo's original intention was that you buy from them at MSRP.

    But being nice guys as they are, after the goofup that apparently happened upon S3's arrival, they relaxed the rules.

    Wow, that $530 S3 is getting tempting (BECAUSE of the S3 transfer offer).

    This is always the cost of being an early adaptor. No one is screwing you.

    $530? Where? The best I have seen is Costco for $649.
