    I should have known it was too good of a deal however I purchased a Tivo Mini on eBay for a decent low price, turns out it's an RCN Tivo Mini.

    It can't be registered to standard Tivo service can it? Tivo online rejected it as an invalid TSN but in the past from my experience, if it's a cable co TSN, it states such and links to the optional cable provider service registration.

    I'm having phone issues for otherwise I would call Tivo directly but I by seeing the RCN logo I suspect I'm SOL.

    I'm pretty sure you can't use it with a retail TiVo. And I doubt RCN does anything but rent them, so it was probably technically stolen. Did the product listing on eBay clearly state that it was an RCN mini? If it didn't then you did not really get what you paid for, and ebay's money back guarantee should kick in.
