Hi all, this is my first post. I'm just starting with the DVR scene, and tried to buy the RTV5080 from Amazon for $379 (before rebate, no tax, no shipping). Amazon "shipped" me the unit, but it was a DVD player. Amazon says they are not shipping yet, and that they are not released. While looking for examples of shipping units I found a great price of $349 before rebate (plus $15 shipping), for a net cost of $314 after rebate!


Here is the link to the store (no connection to me):
http://store.yahoo.com/wholesaleconn...e/rtv5080.html


I called to verify stock, and he said he had 15 in stock, and warned me of the subscription, so he sounds like a reasonable seller. It is a Yahoo store...


The RTV5040 seems to be really cheap as well (no idea on stock), with a list price of $249 and two $50 rebates available:

And finally they have the RTV5160 as well for $459 before $50 rebate:

Not sure who you talked to at Amazon, but I recieved a 5080 from them last Wednesday.

It was the all knowing "Danny R. " who told me this in an email. He wrote:


"Please be advised that the ReplayTV RTV5080 80-Hour Digital Video Recorder has not yet been released and we don't have any updated information on when it will."


I Told them that they "shipped" me one, so how can they not be released? I also told them about all the people here who had them already. It will take two days to hear back, and by then I will likely have my 5080 from the other vendor...
