Fry's Electronics have the TU-HDS20 HDTV receiver on closeout for $199.00. Unfortunately, most of the stores are sold out here in California but this morning their computer shows 3 available (1 is probably a demo unit) in Tempe, AZ.

After many phone calls... here's what's what...

Burbank has one, but the buttons are broken off.
San Diego has one, I don't know in what kind of condition it's in.
None of the other stores in SoCal have any in stock. One person at the Burbank store thought they were getting new models in next week, but he wasn't sure. I doubt it.

The employees at the City of Industry store were the most helpful, spoke clearly and were genuinely interested in finding the answer to my question. I thought I had a wrong number!

I'm going to attempt to get Good Guys or Best Buy to match the price. I don't have high hopes but it's worth a try...

Follow-up...

At the Beverly Hills Good Guys I was informed that they stopped carrying the Panasonic STB, and all Panasonic electronics (except phones) months ago. I was also informed that the Panasonic was exactly the same as the Hughes and Toshiba boxes. Who should I believe... the high school drop-out at the store... or the vast number of posts in here... hmmm...
