On ubid, there is currently an auction for 21 "Comcast Replay TV" units. There are 25 minutes to go in the auction--and current high bid is $99--a great way to pick up a cheap unit?


BTW, is anyone familiar with the comcast version?

Any chance of you posting a link to the auction? I can't find it based on "comcast" or "replay". Thanks.

does this comcast include lifetime subscription?

It appears to function the same as any Replay. For all we know the C means a B stock that was refurbished again, and the seller is making the Comcast thing up :)

Replay dosn't have subscriptions namja.


It looks like they are selling off the comcast boxes from this press release.
Press Release


And here is an old article about it:

Cnet News


If I remeber how the deal was with another cable company they did this thru the boxes are a special version that has most of 3.0's features and some specal ones so they could view pay-per-view movies off the cable system.

I thought that the AT&T 2.6 boxes had manual record and padding?

Anyone know what they ended at? Last I saw (with 3 hours to go) they were at $300. But UBID doesn't let you see the final price!

The photo on the auction page appears to be a 4000. Seems they were rather sloppy.


While they didn't go for $99, I have a friend that found one at a store on closeout for $199 with an alleged $100 rebate. So the great prices are out there if you get lucky.

They have another auction now--30 minutes to go. Plenty left but there is a reserve price of 229--there are 30 units or so with only a handful of people meeting the reserve so far

Geez, Im sorry for the re-post--I hit my refresh button on the wrong screen and it reposted. I am not associated with ubid in any way! In fact, I am not a big fan of ubid--especially their policy of keeping auctions open past closing time if they keep getting bids. I hope some of you were able to get a good deal though

I'd buy one, but are we SURE that this doesn't have a special version of the software that is out of date and/or non-upgradable like some of those units with a certain version of 2.1? If it were a true Replay brand unit I'd buy one in a heartbeat.


(love the Replay 4k picture with it, morons... Isn't that false advertising? Or bait and switch? I'd bet I'd have a case...)
