Would you lose the lifetime on this unit by getting the lifetimed Premiere?
And would that be a new, never used Premiere?
'Cause I've seen used lifetimed ones for less recently.
Do you have any idea what IP address it's using and have you tried pinging it?
To answer these questions. It goes from the welcome...then flickers and goes dark and stays dark while it continues to boot.
I can ping the tivo just fine, it shows up on my network. When using the remote, it looks like (from the front panel) that it is receiving signal.
As for the price...$350 and you have to not use the old "broken" one anymore...meaning it cant be used or sold or whatever....At least that is my understanding, but I need to call them again. And as for better prices on ebay or something...I hate to buy a used one ... rather get it from Tivo then save $50 ... unless the deal was screaming.
Any morre thoughts out there?
