Well, the past day has been interesting, with people freaking out all over the blogosphere because TiVo raised a couple of rates, most of them by a trivial amount – oh yeah, and dropped more than twice as many as they raised. But people still think the sky is falling. *sigh* Lots of trying to explain basic math over the past day.
Anyway, TiVoPony posted at TiVoCommunity.com to clarify a couple of points. If you currently have a box at the $6.95 MSD rate, it will remain at the $6.95 MSD rate unless you change the status of the account (like canceling service).
If you transfer lifetime to a Series3, then after the year of free service on the old box expires, it will be eligible for the $6.95 MSD rate.
