TiVo HD here I come

So as I previously mentioned I have owned a TiVo Series 1 since 15-Jun-2000. I was recently made aware of an upgrade offer, the second such offer I have heard of, to upgrade my existing device and transfer my lifetime service to the new device. When I purchased the device I figured making a one-time payment made more sense than paying them something every month for as long as I could concieveably own the device. Their only key is when yo udo the service transfer you get to pay them $199, which is actually more than I paid to begin with for the lifetime service. But some time ago they realized they could make more money with monthy service so they stopped offering lifetime service.

I ordered my TiVo HD device today and am waiting to have the service transfer completed now. I was told by the nice CSR that transfering my service does not preclude future transfers should the offer be made on a newer device. Hopefully TiVo is happy that an existing user with no forseeable revenue stream is sending some more green their way and will keep making offers in the future. Then again after doing two transfers would I be better making monthly payments to the man? I guess we will have to consider that situation should the time come in the future.
