Sold by Weaknees. Looks like they stockpiled them.

If you assembled a whole TiVo out of parts purchased at Weaknees, it would cost like $1000.

Which sounds like a lot, but take the price of a new car and see how far it gets you buying that car one piece at a time*.

Wow!! That is 2.5x what is used to sell for on Amazon. I picked one up in November 2011 for $40 from Amazon.

Even BestBuy still sells them for $60, if the local store still has them in stock. Several in my area still have them.

Where did you find that deal for $23 & was it new or a refurb? Tivo wants $50 shipped for a refurb right now. There are a few Best Buys in my area that have them new for $60. They also have their 2 year warranty for $12 so if my slide happens to fail I can replace it with their new remote someday. This would be going in my Master Bedroom to use with my 320GB Premiere until it gets replaced by a mini. It will get little use, so I don't want to spend much for it for.

I am really hoping the 'new' remote add at least one or 2 more programmable buttons. Heck 4 would be stupendus. I like and will stick with a peanut remote for all our tv's in the house as they all work the same way, but the main home theater has more equipment and really could use just a few more buttons for powering up/down individual items like projector, reciever, poweramps, screen down and lighting.

There were 3 Best Buys in my area that had the slide in stock when I checked Saturday. The closest one to me was sold by Sunday & I bought the last one from the next closest store today for $60 plus the $12 warranty. This has to be the best deal out there right now if you can still find one locally, plus they do offer free shipping right now on their website. I think it is worth it to buy the warranty with the troubles that these are known to have. Also with the possibility of a newer remote being released this year, if it fails it would be an easier way to upgrade.

Guess I spoke too soon, I just set it up & I can't get the dongle to go into discovery mode. I tried both USB ports, it light up but won't start flashing when you hold down the button. Oh well now I have to drive another 40 minutes to pick up another tomorrow.

The refurbs on TiVo.com are down to $39.99 (no free shipping though).

I find it easiest to program on line. We never use the remote for that but the computer is right by the TIVO.

I swapped out my defective slide at Best Buy & set it up the other night. So far it has worked flawless & I am happy I bought one before they disappear.

2 of the directional buttons on the outside of my slide remote have become unresponsive. Anyone know of any brick and mortar stores I can to a swap trick with my defective slide remote?

Just got a slide from Tivo.com for $50 shipped with taxes. They call it a refurb but it looks like new sealed stock with a refurb sticker attached to the outside of the box. The remote, batteries, blue tooth dongle and instruction manual all look new to me. The Tivo works perfect inside a solid wood cabinet about 10 ft. from my seating position.

Is it possible this is new stock they are just clearing out and calling it refurb to reduce the warranty period? I remember Onkyo used to do that.

I might get a second one at this price.

I love the slide!!!! And I was almost gonna buy a backup a few months ago, that I could use if the mini ever out, but it seemed like a waste. Wish I had now...

I picked up a slide last night from Best Buy. They had two extremely dusty units, but the stickers that sealed the boxes looked kind of weird. One box only had one, and the other had stickers that looked like they had been opened and then resealed poorly.

I was assured that everything was brand new, so I bought it, got it home to find that no batteries are in the box. I'm going to go back now and try to get an extended warranty or something because it's the best remote I've ever had for my TiVo. The entire interface seems far, far more responsive using this remote. How likely is it to fail?

The "refurb" I got from Tivo had the 2 seals on the retail box undisturbed, thats why I'm speculating they might be new stock. Sounds like your unit had been opened at the store or maybe a return.

anyone ever have issues with their slide remote freaking out and continuing to send the same signal over and over after pushing the button just once? I stopped using mine long ago because it kept doing that.
