    Bought a basic yesterday in Chicagoland (they also had Plus in stock). Seems like you just need to refresh the store availability list a few times a day until some stock pops up.

    I live in Texas and ordered mine direct from Tivo w/ the free ground shipping. I ordered it on a Thursday afternoon and it arrived at my home the next day. If you live near a Tivo distro point (ours is in the DFW area), might as well order direct if you want it soon.

    Tivos I've bought in the past have always shipped from Fort Worth, so someone who lives in the DFW metroplex will generally receive a Tivo in one day regardless of the shipment method chosen.

    I am pretty sure all of their equipment comes out of Texas.

    I was hoping they had more than one distribution point. How do they ship, UPS Ground? I'm in NY, so I'm guessing it's probably a good 3 days to me...

    Looks like South Tampa has some in now, but no Plus. They have the Roamio and the Pro. Brandon also has the Roamio, but nothing else.

    I was momentarily weak and bought a Plus at the only local Best Buy which showed stock available. My 3tb AV-GP is on the way from Amazon, so I probably won't run through guided setup until tomorrow.

    Just received my shipping notice from Best Buy, no details are in the UPS system yet, crossing my fingers it shows before the long weekend :D

    That was my biggest motivator. When I realized I'll be home for three full days, purchasing locally was the only way I could ensure I would have my new toy in time.

    Trust me if the local store gets it before my shipped one does, Best Buy will be seeing a return ;)

    The Plus and Pro are now available at several of my local stores in Ma & NH.

    If anybody is in the twin cities MN the BB at Mall of America shows the pro in stock. I am looking into getting the pro, but do not feel like driving to the Mall of America. My local Best Buy seems to estimate 1-2 weeks, but expect closer to 1 week. My only wish is to get it running by late September before most of the fall season starts.

    I snagged a Roamio Plus from the Mid Rivers store in St Peters, MO. Bought it online his morning. It took a few tries to get it...kept getting an error when trying to add to cart.

    Woah, all of my BBs say unavailable.. but 1-2 weeks if ordered online (and with free shipping). I may round up the BB gift certificates I have to see how much total I have.. if I can pay for most of the hardware, I may just bite.. (I've been pondering biting even without that, and selling my P4 + tivo stream + tivo HD and replace with the 6 tuner roamio)

    I picked up a Pro today at the Best Buy closest to me. I put it on my Best Buy credit card, so I'll get 5% back in the form of Reward Zone points. I called TiVo to activate it, and I was shocked that I got the MSD price on lifetime. The rep was surprised as well, because the computer was showing that I wasn't eligible for the MSD on this one since I got the MSD on the last 5 machines I bought.
