I was gonna give it a shot using paypal so I would have a chance at getting my money back but during checkout they say you are new and cant use it. Im NOT gonna give them a cc# thats for sure!
They also dont answer any inquiries and I found another site setup the exact same way and same prices just a different name so I'm not sure if a scam or not. Its definitely from China, is that where Tivos are made?

There is no reason that they should not accept PayPal if they are legitimate. What do they care if you are "new" or not? PayPal has already verified you.

A search I did turned up a bunch of people claiming that its a scam site.
Too bad, I'd love an elite that cheap.

Fake VeriSign Seal Logo

The VeriSign Seal at the bottom of the page is not clickable. Compare the VeriSign Seal to a legitimate site. So is the McAfee Secure Seal.
