    I initially ordered a Roamio on Tivo.com and then saw the Weaknees offer which came to about $120 less with no Tax and coupon. I tried to cancel my Tivo.com order but it was too late. My Tivo.com order just got here, and now I need to wait 2 more days to get my Weeknees delivery. I am also going away on Thursday for the weekend.

    Do you think if I setup and install the Tivo.com order, and then when my WK DVR comes in, I can ship that back to Tivo.com? I know its slightly unethical but I woudl be sending them back an unopened DVR. My concern though is that I see tivo.com already has the ID.

    Arrggh! Its stairing at me and waiting 2 days will drive me nuts!

    Don't do that. The Tivos have different TSNs and the return to Tivo may not work.

    I'm sure TiVo will check the SN and not take back the one from Weakness. Probably best to just wait it out.

    TiVo ships their TiVos with the TSN assigned to your account and activated with whatever plan you chose at checkout. You will need to return the ones from TiVo to TiVo within 30 days.

    Either way you ate into your savings since you will need to pay return shipping I believe.

    Just another vote for "don't return the wrong TSN to the wrong reseller."

    Your best option might be to refuse the package when it shows up at your door. Then it will automatically get returned with no extra cost to you.

    Too late for that, he already accepted the one he didn't want.

    I have not opened the box, just a heads up you can do a return to sender on any UPS package that has not been opened. I plan to drop it off as the package was left at my door, so I wont be charged shipping. Do this with Amazon all the time.

    Devices ordered from TiVo.com have a 30 day money back option -- simply return.

    You must get a RMA from TiVo (I think) to be sure your account gets the credit.
