This has been $149 directly from Tivo. Out of stock for 1TB right now, but still at $149.

Got in on that deal, but wish I had the 1TB option.

IMHO - if you're going to buy a Tivo, get a lifetime service plan. The monthly or annual plans are way too expensive and these boxes don't work without a service plan. If the lifetime service plan is too expensive for you, then buy a different DVR with a cheaper plan.

Agreed.

  I assume you mean the refurb ones are 149...as these show up as $299 directly from Tivo.

I have lifetime Tivo for over 3 years, it works great
It saves me from paying Charter the $19.99 dvr fees per month, They hit me $2 a month for the mutlistream cable card
The math really worked well for me, plus the Tivo hasn't missed a show in that entire time, we used to have the Charter dvr miss a couple per week

Can't you buy a cable card now?

Also renting a cablecard, but it's $5 from Verizon/month. Never heard of buying a cablecard.

I dumped cable several months ago, but had read that consumers have the right to purchase both set top boxes and cable cards. I see that set top boxes are available, but I can't find anything on cable cards. Sorry about that!

One caveat, Tivo series 4 and higher have a software glitch C423 where the higher series cannot see or transfer to or from a Series 3 unit.

  I'm sure you can buy one, but will our service providers activate them and allow us to use it on their networks?

I'll sell you one for $5, 3 for $12.

I agree, but... Lifetime Service is $550 now! Breaks even in the 4th year, which is okay, but that's still a lot of money to put out.

Love my TiVo, but not sure about committing $550 to them for future services.

I wish... Comcast is my only option. While they don't charge for a CableCard if it's your only device, as soon as you add another box (or another CableCard) they charge a "Digital Outlet Fee" for which is (surprise!) the same cost as renting a box -- $9.95. For each additional device you add on top of that it's yet another fee. As much as I'd love to try a TiVo, unfortunately paying $25/mo ($10 + $15) is a complete non-starter -- seriously f*** Comcast. I filed an FCC complaint which of course didn't go anywhere.

  You only need 1 cable card if you use the Tivo mini's on your other tvs

  Was coming here to post the same.  Though a Tivo mini is another $150 you have to invest.  Totally makes sense for a multi-TV household though and you'll break even even quicker with one.

It's $250 now, still $50 off retail.
