    What's up all,
    Is the S3 even sold in stores anymore? I can find it at CC online, but I wanted to go up to NH and not pay the tax on it.
    Every CC that I check it says "not currently available" (In store).

    I will order online, but wanted to go pick it up so I have it in hand that night.
    Thanks!

    Looks like Bestbuy has it, but it has a mail in rebate of $200 of an S3 with new service.

    CC is $59.99 for the wireless adaptor?

    Why don't you price match the the CC price at BestBuy.

    I purchased the last S3 in stock on Monday at the CC store in Freehold, NJ. Another TCF member picked one up on Sunday at that same store so their inventory was at least two at the start of the TiVo rebate program. My guess is that TiVo will make the HD the "platform" of future TiVo units and they are probably not manufacturing the S3 anymore.
    By-the-way, AAA members can get a 10% off coupon for purchases of more than $200 at CC, in store or online. That easily covered the 7% sales tax in NJ. My total purchase price w/tax was $578 at CC less the $200 rebate to be mailed in.

    I'm using the same adapter as Teeps (but make sure you have the right revision.) with my S3. And don't forget, it's a "B" adapter, not a "G"....

    I used to use it with my S2.

    I got the TiVo G adapter and presently use it with the S2, because TiVoToGo is not yet activated on the S3. If/when it is, I will switch it back.

    I was at Fry's in Renton, Washington (outside of Seattle) on Monday. They had an endcap with a handful each of the S3 and THD units.
