Advertisements I have wanted a DVR for years. I kept holding off. I finally bit the bullet on Wednsday and ordered a Tivo dual tuner unit with a one year commitment. I used my debit card. I do not have a credit card. Having just come out of high school, I do not want a credit card yet. I am under the assumption that a debit card can be used anywhere credit cards are accepted. I have made several purchases at Newegg and have had no issues. Anyway, after I completed the process the charges immediately showed up on my Key Bank checking account. Today I was able to login to my Tivo account and when I did, I got the following mesage when I tried to go to the "Activate account" or "Change Service Number": The balance due under billing history is in red. Is there something wrong here? Is using a debit card not possible at all? I know credit cards are recommended for online purchases but I trust Tivo. I have only used my debit card online at one other store, Newegg, which I also trust. If I absolutely have to, I guess I can get a credit card but I'd rather not.
