    They gave me a different story. Said they can't cancel orders unless it's within 15 minutes of the order being placed. They placed for me a 2nd order for a Stream using the promo and the promise they'll credit the 49.99 + shipping when I call back after receiving the shipment.

    They canceled my order after 3-4 hours had passed when I called since I could order from Amazon.com and not pay tax.

    Just curious. I already own a TiVo Stream. So am I better off going for a better model or get the basic and resell the stream. Are they worth anything??

    A quick search of eBay/Craigslist shows that they fetch around $70-80 used

    Thats not right. I placed my initial order last night 13 hours ago and they canceled it and reordered for me a Roamio + Stream for the same price.

    Looks like you can use the code with just the base Roamio and get $50 off. I just did that (since I already have a Stream) to replace my OTA box.

    They are technically and functionality identical. If you're getting a Roamio Plus or Pro, the Stream is integrated. If you are getting the base model Roamio, you need the Stream to provide this functionality. You will not see any functional difference.

    I also have a stream in my account.
    I used the code and got $50 off the base Roamio without an additional stream.

    I was just going to point out that option; it works even if you don't already have a stream in your account.

    I wished they would've done that for me also, I hate getting pushed to the back of the order queue.

    People that didn't order the chrome cast in the first few hours ended up having to wait extra days/weeks.

    I will be really upset if mine doesn't to my house in the next few days.

    I could have saved $10 and got the unit tomorrow via amazon, but a stream device for 10$ and a slight delay is worth it.

    The code also works if you have a stream and pro on your cart. The pro price is the same but the stream gets discounted to $50. I realize you don't need both, but still a deal.

    Double Sigh. Half Quelled. I just realized it is OTA -OR- Cable. Only one input on the box.

    Still a good deal.

    It also appears that the code works if you only put a Roamio basic in your cart, it took $50 of its price. I would get it but not enough disk space for me and don't know yet how hard it will be to upgrade it.

    Code with just the Stream and no TiVo, seems to bring the price down to $49.99.

    Got the $50 off deal but cancelled the order and added the stream -- not that I need it since I have a Slingplayer and a Vulkano.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Sweet, just tried it, and the code reduces the base Roamio to $149.99 and the Stream to $49.99. I hope it still works in a few weeks when I can actually make the purchase with the $399.99 lifetime service. :)

    <update>
    Well, just found the bottom of the Tivogrouper page shows expiration of the offer is December 31st. :)

    ...or while supplies last.

    http://tivogrouper.com

    Like many of these promotional deals - the intent is to get the word out about both the TiVo Roamio AND the Grouper group date service. They probably have a set amount of $$ set aside to market in this way, and it would not surprise me if the supplies (or money) run out well before December 31st.

    THANK YOU so much! After tax and shipping (VA), it came out to 63 for me. Fantastic deal on the tivo stream. I've been wanting one since it came out. Even more excited that it seems soon I can replace my slingbox with it for out-of-home streaming.
