You don't pay tax on Tivo.com purchases unless you live in CA, afaik.
Actually, I'm seeing an estimated $12.50 tax when inputting a Chicago, IL (where I am) zipcode in the shopping cart. Out of curiosity, I also tried a NC zipcode and saw $0 tax. I wonder if TiVo has some presence in IL?
I may bite on this deal sometime within the next few days, but I think I may call them to verify that these are not the refurbished units from the prior $199 deal. The email I got about the new deal didn't explicitly say anything about refurbs, but I figure no harm in asking.
I did have a question for those of you using OTA antennas that I don't believe I saw addressed in this thread...Do you use a splitter from the antenna to the TiVo in order to be able to use dual tuners? I hope that's not too dumb a question, my current series 2 box only has a single tuner
