    I cancelled my order with solidsignal and put in an order through abt. I'm saving $33 more now :up:. Of course, I now have to wait a little longer for my fun to begin :thumbsdown:. I can live with that.

    Unless Labor Day delivery is an option, it will be Tuesday or later.

    Tracking says Tuesday is scheduled delivery date. If it had shipped Wednesday like they original said I'd have it today. 1 day late getting it out equals 3 extra days on shipping. :(

    They have a 5% sale going on if you use code "LaborDay2013"
    It wouldn't apply to my order, but it took maybe 3 minutes on chat to get a CSR to apply the coupon retroactively.
    $513 for a Pro - figured the ~$40 premium for 3Tb was worth it to not technically void the warranty by upgrading on my own. Don't have any use for a 1Tb AV-GP drive, so that wasn't a sweetener for me.

    Happy to wait a week or two for that price - thanks very much for posting it.

    Oh, I also went through a Fatwallet FatCash link for 2% cash back.
    Having the CSR adjust the order may nullify that, but either way, worth a try.

    Yep...there's a Best Buy near me that says they have the Pro in stock (Bee Cave store for any Austin folks here) so I did an online chat to see if they would match the ABT price. They declined, which wasn't very surprising.

    Was on the fence about ordering since the Roamio Basic I have will probably be enough tuners for us along with the Premiere we already have, but once I realized I could get Fat Cash I decided what the heck. The discovery of the 5% coupon afterward was pure gravy :)

    Now I'll be watching the forum for reports of lockups, reboots, etc. I got our Premiere some time after launch - jumped when Electronics Expo had them for $99. It took a LONG time before it was up to TiVo standards of reliability. I'm hoping the Roamio will have fewer growing pains...fingers crossed.

    This should get us all the TiVo goodness we could possibly need for many years...at least, that's what I said to my wife to get the purchases approved :eek:

    Probably should have waited, but $375 for Plus at Weaknees. I wanted to buy from a store that could offer support.

    No price deal, but local BestBuy has them in stock in the Magnolia section. Walked in Friday at 2pm. They needed 15 minutes to find the Roamio Plus in the stockroom, and I was walking out with it and a mini minutes later.

    Had the Roamio activated with lifetime and the cable card transferred from the old TiVo HD and activated an hour after getting home.

    I didn't save money. But I saved effort by buying retail :)

    Sheesh, sure didn't. Congrats to those who got in on the deal.

    Wanted to add a note - in case anybody missed it, my order confirmation says this will be shipped requiring a signature for delivery, so be aware, someone will have to be home to receive it.

    The only discount/codes for the basic that I'm aware of:

    weakness.com has free shipping and no tax and a $10 off code ROAMIO making the basic $189.99.

    BestBuy has 3x the reward zone points on basic models only(this week only).

    I chatted with ABT yesterday and they said they expect the Roamio Pro's in stock today, and out for shipping, so hopefully on Monday it'll be delivered. No shipping notice yet, though.

    Best Buy has it for $0.01 off.
    Does that count?
