    Guys,

    I would advise you to check your Best Buy's tonight or tomorrow morning. The Roamio's are all on the Thursday trucks in my area headed to stores. They may get there before close or at worst case tomorrow morning. I am in the Chicagoland area...Mine is set to be delivered tomorrow from Amazon.com, was going to get the Roamio Pro from Best Buy if I found it at retail before the Amazon.com order came in...

    Thanks for the info!!

    Hopefully the Roamio Pro shows up at one of the Best Buys here. Of course this is a weekend where I have to work late Friday night and 14 hours on Saturday. So the earliest I'll probably be able to get to BestBuy is Sunday.

    Note, the Plus and Pro are listed as Magnolia Best Buy products. That typically means your best buy needs to have the Magnolia section in the store for them to carry.

    I am suprised at your thoughts on the Pro coming that soon. I see the online as only coming soon. But the other 2 units are allowing you to order online already. The base model appears to be instock online, but the plus is backordered.

    I just spoke with my local store Ann Arbor MI and they tell me they show two Roamio Pro's on order but no ship date, no plus or basic on order or in stock. He said they may show up on next Tuesday or Thursdays truck. Nothing this evening :(

    Yeah, at work so just replied real quick. As long as you qualify for MSD, you can activate any TiVo with it regardless of where you got it..

    I gave them only the Pro SKU when I called two of the local stores, and they both showed 2 each on a truck en route.

    Can TiVo's extended warranty be purchased upon activation if the box didn't come from TiVo?

    The trick to calling Best Buy and checking stock, is to always give them the SKU only, don't say, "I'm looking for the new TiVo...", because they will usually then just give some arbitrary answer rather than looking it up in the computer...At least from my experience...

    You have thirty days from activation to purchase the TiVo extended warranty.

    Just placed my order for a Roamio Plus at my local Best Buy, I had to use a 95 dollar reward zone coupon so I figured what the hell. They tell me there are 9 in the warehouse yet the ship date is Sept 5th
