Advertisements My turn... I called Directv asking about getting tivo for $49 and was given the runaround. I was transferred to a few different people with the end result being that I couldn't get at that price. I waited a few minutes and called the retention number. I basically told them that Circuit City was offering the tivo at $50 after rebate and wondered if they could offer me the same deal. Within a few minutes I had the deal, no questions asked. The installers were here on monday and everything is working fine.
