    I was eyeing that... anyone know what shipping runs? I couldn't get too far without adding all my info in. Or user error.

    The shipping prices for me are listed as:
    $6.99 - UPS Ground (5 to 7 days)
    $11.29 UPS 2nd Day Air
    $20.97 UPS Next Day Air

    I was thinking of jumping on this as well, but since I'm in NJ and the store is as well, I'd have to pay tax which adds another $4.20 to the price. That plus the shipping puts the price at the same that Amazon was charging the other week, though the price there has gone back up. I could go and pick it up, but the store is 40 miles away.

    On a side note, the price changed to $81.71 without the code. With the code it's still $59.99.

    Also oddly if you pick the pay via Amazon the discount doesn't show up.

    Actually if you select pay with Amazon it shows the $89.99 but then when you go to checkout it does show the coupon/discount so the price is correct.

    Despite my reservations, I decided to take the plunge. Ended up being $71.67 with shipping and NJ tax which is still a good price.

    I think you made the right call. Driving 40 miles (twice) doesn't seem worth it. I'm not ready to pull the trigger just yet, as I might prefer to use that coupon for a Premiere XL to replace my aging S3. Thinking about it...

    For what's it's worth the code applies to all items in your cart from what I can tell.

    Maybe you can use "program your remote for several tvs" feature and program the on and off into the same button. this may work or it may just quickly turn your tv on and off and visa versa.

    from tivo.com:
    "These Learning remotes can control power for up to three different devices.

    To learn power for a second device, follow all of the instructions above but for Step 2, press the number 1 before pressing TV Power."

    good luck!

    morac,

    Did you get your Slide yet or did you at least get a tracking number/email?

    I was going to take a chance and get one. It comes up to $66.98 for me with UPS Ground shipping (should be two days) and no tax.

    Thanks

    Yes, my Slide arrived yesterday. It shipped on Saturday, the same day I got an email with the tracking number from Amazon Payments. I chose ground shipping since I assumed (correctly), that it wouldn't take more than a day or two to ship from New Jersey to New Jersey. :)

    Thanks,

    I went ahead and ordered from them. Funny thing though, I got a security warning about the site saying that it contained resources that were not secure. I'm using Chrome. Oh well.

    Now I see the Slide for $64.99 and free shipping from TigerDirect. (on eBay)

    I might order one from them also.

    I also got one. So next week both the TiVo (from TiVo @ $210) and Slide (from ebay @ $65) will come. The Hulu aspect pushed me over the edge to upgrade.

    Can I use two slide remotes on the same TivoHD unit?

    FYI, I just spoke with the people at Tivo and they said you can use only one Qwerty remote per each Tivo. Glad I asked because I was going to buy two. They should mention that on the ordering page.

    Can you use the slide remote temporarily and then revert back to the RF remote? Getting ready to do some TiVo shuffling and it would be nice to use the slide temporarily on one TiVo to get all the season passes established.

    Here's the details if it helps answer the question. We have an S3 on our upstairs primary TV. Just got a Premiere to replace it and the S3 will go downstairs to replace the S2 in the workout room. So I'd like to plug in the slide remote temporarily on the S3 to enter all the season passes it needs for that role. Then the slide will go upstairs to the Premiere to enter all the season passes that the S3 used to have and make it the primary TiVo in the house. The slide will then stay on the Premiere.

    Thanks
    Jeff

    Should be as easy as temporarily plugging the slide remote's USB dongle into the S3 to enter the season passes, then removing it and plugging it into the Premiere.

    The slide remote pairs with it's bluetooth USB dongle, not with any particular TiVo, so move the dongle and you change which TiVo the slide remote is talking to.

    That a bit more realistic. Got one, thanks for the tip. They're stating delivery in a month. That's odd, you don't usually see an order telling you it won't deliver for 30 days. Wonder what's up with that?

    My old remote's on the way out. Most of the labels are worn off and a few of the buttons aren't quite as responsive as before. But this was actually a DirectTV remote (with the SAT|TV switch). My actual Tivo HD remote is still probably in a box somewhere.

    Does the 30 second skip work on this remote? I have been trying to program it but it does not seem to work.

    Yes it does. If you're having trouble turning on 30s skip, try programmng it while watching a recorded show. It's a little tricky trying to do it while watching live TV.
