Fairly cheap Rogers HD PVR from TSC - SA8300HD

As posted on RFD, The Shopping Channel has the older SA8300HD PVR (Refurb) for $179.99 + $15.86 S&H + TAX. This is the Ontario model and includes a 2 year warranty.

TSC has the no-fee "easy pay" of 4 payments of $45.00 (first payment will include Tax and shipping). If you are paying $25/month for the rental, you may consider this deal. While it is a refurb, it still covers the 2 year warranty from time of activation and you can take it back to Rogers for exchange if you have problems with it (like a rental) during the warranty period.

NOTE: This is not the newer 8642HD and it is NOT compatible with WHPVR nor the new GUI. (which may be a good thing) :-)

Not a bad deal. If you really wanted to go through the effort you could buy this and get it exchanged for an 8642.

How would one do such a thing? Through the warranty?

Generally, when you have aproblem with a Rogers box (owned or rented), they will usually exchange it rather than returning it for repair. So, if they have no 8300s in stock, changes are they could replace with a 8642, but I wouldn't bet on it.

I thought the policy with owned boxes was, if they don't work you are SOL and they wont replace it for you unless its within the warranty period.

That is correct. The refurbs being sold at TSC (A Rogers owned company) come with a 2-yr warranty.

Ok, I am just trying to clarify that this warranty is specific to the TSC boxes and not any 8000HD/8300HD that someone may purchase on the streets.

I noticed that the refurbished SA8300HD is still available at TSC, now for $159.99 + Shipping + Tax. This is half the price of a new HD STB...
