I spent some time searching this forum for an answer regarding my question above, but I couldn't seem to find a definitive answer: If you purchase a new, unactivated HD TIVO off of ebay can you actually submit the rebate form and expect to receive $200 in return? I believe the pdf file I downloaded off of D*'s website states that you need to submit an "original dated sales receipt"....and the closest I'd have to that is a paypal receipt! Has anyone gone this route? My Ebay HD TIVO purchase was for a new unit but I'm *pretty* sure that the seller isn't an authorized D* retailer. Anyone?
