I should have been clearer. The coupon is for "$300 off Any Customized HP Pavilion Desktop PC $949+ Code: DT1271 (Exp 8/15)". My total price (after $300 coupon and $100 instant rebate) was $1098.99 including upgrades to 2GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS, ATI digital cable tuner + internal tuner and Microsoft Office.
I plan to use the external tuner (with a CableCard) to record digital cable for most recordings and I plan to use the internal tuner to record analog cable when the external tuner is busy. Like most cable companies, Cablevision provides both analog and digital signals on their digital cable.
