A point, possibly off-topic. In the UK the "online shop" is now essentially a silicondust page that 
buys your product through Amazon. The first HDHR dual tuner I bought came from the same page but 
Amazon was not involved at that time.

I don't like Amazon or its practices so avoid it at all times. I needed another tuner, so I 
eventually had my son (who buys tons through Amazon) to get it for me.

As always, YMMV.
