Any Roamio seller without California tax?

I'm having trouble finding a dealer that sells Roamio without California tax. Both Amazon and Tivo will charge that near 10% sales tax.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Try solidsignal.com they are in Michigan so they shouldn't have to charge CA tax.

Since Tivo doesn't have a model besides the Base Model that support OTA, I will purchase the base model right away at the $150 "grouper' price provided I can find a dealer outside California.

The $150 grouper price only applies on tivo.com and TiVo will charge sales tax in CA.

yep, unfortunately CA will charge the 10% tax on the FULL retail price of the $399 (Base Unit) even though it's only sold for $150 with the coupon

The full retail prices is $199 not $399. The coupon only saves you $50. In fact the coupon was intended to get you a free Stream by discounting the stream to $50 and then giving you $50 off the Roamio. But people were abusing it by only buying one or the other so they stopped it. Someone said they're going to bring it back when they fix the loophole but for now it's dead.

I tried ordering a Base today and the GROUPER promo code did not work, so I elected to wait to purchase a unit for a few more weeks.

Hopefully it will re-surface.
