    I'm thinking about it. So if I order this to replace my Series 3, are they going to up my monthly service to $15 instead of the $13 it is now? I know they changed their monthly fee to $15 for some, $20 for others, or who knows what I never understood it.

    Lifetime sub the Elite for $399 before canceling the service on your Series 3 solves that problem. Also when you go to cancel the service on your Series 3 they may offer you the $99 lifetime deal which would make your Series 3 much more sale-able.

    FYI, I just called in to Tivo support to verify I could get the $399 lifetime on this box and they offered to match the woot price + free shipping.

    I am thinking about the upgrade to XL4 too and wondering about this. I currently pay $12.95 and $9.95 for my two premieres. I don't think I can swing lifetime right now, so any idea whether my rate for either of my current subscriptions would increase? Also, is it as simple as moving my cable card to the new box and calling Cox to pair it with the XL4? Thanks.

    Is the lifetime service without the MSD discount 499.99 on this? Will this unit work with the upcoming multi-room device? I cannot post a link to the device since I do not have 5 posts.

    I just called Tivo and they would NOT price match. In fact, they told me they have been getting lots of calls to price match and they won't do it.

    Did Woot sell out? If not order it from Woot! No need to price match. You can still get the 2 year or 3 year extended warranty from TiVo. They give you thirty days or more to sign up for the extended warranty. At least that was the case with the Elites i got from BestBuy. But with those I got the BestBuy four year warranty.

    aaronwt, woot still has them five minutes or so. I just bought one. I hope the multiroom device comes out soon so I can replace my moxi and mates.

    Tivo told me that I can't get the MSD if I order from Woot so I'd end up breaking even....but then they price matched!

    That's BS. MSD requires a qualifying unit which is on your TiVo account regardless where you get an Elite from.

    If this turns out to not be the case you'll here about it here since Iv'e got one coning from E-expo price matched to woot.
    ?- This will be my fifth box which is the limit for multi discount I believe. 2 of the boxes I've sold. Can I call Tivo to remove these boxes so I can use the multi discount again in the future?

    Supposedly there is a limit but it never affected me getting a MSD price. Even when I had eight boxes on my account, all with MSD pricing. When adding another box I still got the MSD price. I was always worried that I wouldn't be able to get it but so far that has never been the case.

    Yeah that's what I thought, but they price matched the Woot! deal even though I bought it last week so I didn't push the issue.

    Sigh, I couldn't resist, since Comcast finally killed the analog signal that my Series 2 DT was working off of, leaving only my TiVo HD. Now I need to Ebay both of those.

    Seems like most people were on the Eastcoast that purchased them. It was certainly an excellent deal.
