OneCall is offering the new Pioneer DVR810HS DVD Recorder with Tivo for $832. Free shipping. That's a good 30% off the list price of $1,200.

Must... resist... techno-lust...

Seriously, it's still eight hundred freakin' dollars. Toshiba makes a combo TiVo/DVD player (no recording capability) that lists at $550, which is ridiculously overpriced, considering that you could get comparable functionality out of two separate units for at least $200 less.

I'd think about the Pioneer if I could get it for around $600. I'd really think about it if DirecTV got into the game. And I'd be sold, now, if it supported HDTV out of the box. But, as I've said before, that's not going to happen for a while.
