If you're located in a state where TiVo ships to with "no sales tax" - the savings in sales tax plus the free N-Adapter or slide remote usually is a "better buy"! You only need to ask for the adapter or the slide remote!

I got mine from Amazon thru Yogi Computers for only $449, no tax and free shipping. They list them for $479 but if you send them a message they usually will put the price down to $449 if you are serious about buying right away.

And just in case you are curious, if something goes wrong and you need to return it then you send it back to Tivo not Yogi Computers. I know because I had to return mine.

I'm having that massive pixelation issue that a lot of other Elite owners are having. After 4 cable cards, 3 tuning adapters, and TWC rewiring my house with all new jacks as well, we eliminated the possiblity that it might be the cable. And oh yes, I moved the Elite to every room in the house and tried it there also. No problems with my other 3 Tivo's either. As a last resort Tivo sent me another one, but the problems remain with the new Elite. Surprise surprise! I refused to go pull the wire off the side of the house and fish it thru the window to get a direct connection from the pole to the Tivo like tech support suggested. Maybe I should've?

Best Buy isn't sending out coupons like they used to in the past. I've only received one coupon this year. And it was only a 10% off coupon. Although I did use it on my second Elite, so I was glad I at least got that one coupon.

Roger on the lack of BB coupons this year. BB is feeling the competition from internet only retailers and is having trouble competing.

This is very iffy and ymmv (your mileage may vary). But it is worth a shot.

Ask for a manager and nicely ask for the 10% off. It has worked for me previously.

Didn't even realize it, but yeah I haven't gotten any coupons lately. It make sense though with the way their business is going.

I just got an email from BestBuy saying that a new reward zone card would be coming and that they would be sending me a 10% off coupon. I don't recall them ever announcing to me that a coupon is coming like this. If it's like the last coupon I received, it will have my name printed on it to limit it's use to only me.
