    There don't seem to be any restrictions on service other than a 1 year minimum commitment:
    (4) A MINIMUM ONE (1) YEAR SERVICE COMMITMENT IS REQUIRED FOR ALL NEW TIVO SERVICE ACTIVATIONS. EARLY TERMINATION FEE APPLIES IF TIVO SERVICE IS CANCELLED OR OTHERWISE TERMINATED PRIOR TO FULFILLMENT OF TIVO SERVICE SUBSCRIPTION COMMITMENT. NO EARLY TERMINATION FEE WILL BE ASSESSED IF TIVO SERVICE IS CANCELLED WITHIN 30 DAYS OF ACTIVATION; HOWEVER, IN SUCH EVENT, THE REBATE OFFER WILL NOT APPLY.

    I caved and and ordered my 2nd unit via TCS (free shipping, no taxes and they take PayPal) vs. Amazon that wanted to charge for shipping. I will probably do a 3-year commit on MSD to get the lowest service fee possible.

    I took the plunge on Amazon this morning. I had a $10 gift cert looking for a home so it worked out well...except that Amazon is out and, as Alan pointed out, the ship date is listed as July 9, 2007 - July 23, 2007 with a delivery date even later.

    I may have to cancel this order and place with someone who has units on hand. The child in me is very impatient.....

    I believe the tivo must be activated by July 16 to get the rebate, so I'd highly recommend getting it from somewhere else.

    Why don't you guys just order from the TivoCommunity store? $599, No tax and I had mine within a few days.

    I agree. They were great to deal with.

    I ordered from TCS on Saturday morning but so far have received no email indicating a tracking #. It states usually 1 business day usually to ship, so hopefully later today sometime it will be shipped...

    You probably will not receive an email with tracking number. If you need the tracking number use the contact us form and ask for it. I'd wait til tomorrow though if I were you.

    I cancelled my order with Amazon and placed a new order with TCS!! Considering the support they give to this forum, it really makes more sense to spend money with them anyway. Plus, if there are any issues, for some reason I feel I'd be more likely to get knowledgeable support from TCS. I ordered at 10am Central, I just don't understand why the UPS guy hasn't been here yet!!!

    Is it here yet? Is it here yet? Is it here yet?

    No matter how old I get, I never loose that child-like impatience when it comes to new toys for daddy.

    If it's reassuring at all, I also ordered from TCS on Saturday and haven't heard anything about shipment status. But given that it was the weekend, I'm not going to worry about it until tomorrow morning.

    I ordered mine over the holiday weekend last week, and I received it Friday. Good deal for me since I just chose the free shipping option. As they said, use the contact form for tracking info if needed. I used it to go ahead and schedule my cablecard install, but that experience is for another thread ;)

    I ordered mine last Sunday and it was waiting for me when I got home from vacation Friday night, so not sure when it came, but they didn't send a shipping confirmation email either, don't worry about it, it'll come.

    12 pages of posts...... wow..... I'm sorry if I'm smeeking here, but that's too many pages to read through!

    I noticed the Tivo Community store has the Series 3 for 599 and then you can still get the $200 rebate, but the Tivo site has it for 799 and you get an instant $200 rebate. So, why so much better with the Tivo Community Store? I'm confused!

    I guess because most people would rather pay $399 than $599???

    Could someone who orded from TCS tell me if the tivo was boxed (not just the black box) or was it naked? I won't be home until very late tonight and it is out for delivery.


    :confused:

    You're funny! :rolleyes:

    What I guess I should have said, will the rebate still go through? Can this be confirmed. It seems strange to me that the price difference would be so significant between the two different places!

    My order was NOT double boxed. It came with only the Tivo box. Not a big deal in my case as my porch is somewhat hidden but I can easily seeing it being an issue.

    Good Luck!

    Do you have a neighbor who might be able to check on it every so often and bring it to a more secure location? Which shipper was used? If it's UPS or FedEx, maybe you could tell by tracking it online when it was delivered and then call a neighbor and ask them to bring it inside for you.
