    but is it the DirecTV tivo that won’t update and can’t use the USB port to use the TiVo desktop?

    What about those of us who already have Tivo for $12.95/month?

  • megazone

    Pick one up at retail – with the special offers I linked to last week they’re free after rebate – and then get the MSD discount of $6.95/month.

  • anonymous

    Is that a discount off of the original $12.95, or an additional $6.95 a month on top of the $12.95?

  • megazone

    The original unit remains at $12.95, additional units are discounted to $6.95 each.

    Hey thanks.

  • kirylyn

    apologies for asking more stupid questions – but if I already have a TiVo box, how does the web special work??

    do I select the pre-paid option or the year of service??

    /totally confused :(

  • megazone

    If you have a TiVo box and you’re paying $12.95/month – and it isn’t part of a bundle – then if you get one of the web specials my understanding is that the new box is not eligible for MSD, but it will make the old box eligible. So you’d pay the $12.95/month, or $155.40 prepaid, on the new box, and the old box would drop to $6.95.

  • megazone

    I missed another possibility – while the specials are not eligible for the MSD, I believe they make existing monthly boxes eligible. So you’d pay full rate on the new box, and the existing boxes would drop to $6.95/month. But you might double check that with TiVo.
