Ok, so between you guys and a 10% off cupon I got form best Buy in the mail, I'm convinced. Going sometime this weekend to get my TiVo. I'll get the subscription, too. You guys talked me into it. On last question, though... Can I pay for the subscription month by month for a few months and then pay $200 for the lifetime sub, or is the lifetime sub only offered at the store at the time of purchase? Thanks!
