    If you believe your existing TiVo boxes should qualify you to receive a Multi-Service Discount for Roamio, and it isn't appearing when you login to tivo.com, please email me (margret@tivo.com) so we can look into it.

    WeaKnees isn't showing any Roamios. It will be interesting to see if they significantly undercut TiVo's price for the Pro.

    Thanks Margret. At the moment I am not able to sign in to TiVo.com. I can enter my login and password, but I can't press the Sign In button on this page...

    The Cast button on the Netflix and YouTube apps will also work with TiVo. Just as with Google's $35 Chromecast dongle, anyone with the latest YouTube or Netflix apps can throw video from a mobile device to a TV through the Roamio or an updated Mini.

    No THX certification?:D

    I'm able to log into my account now, but it is also still showing the $499 for lifetime after I add the Roamio to my cart.

    I've been told the login issue has been resolved. Please give it another try.

    (Thanks for your patience!)

    Same here. It is also saying a max of 5 MSD which I don't remember that before. It was updated 8/20 but not sure what was changed.

    I am surprised there is no upgrade offer to transfer lifetime. We have seen one every new series that gets released.

    I hope they don't include the TiVo Mini in the number.

    Not for me it isn't and not showing any type of MSD. I can only login by going to My Account first.

    I see the MSD on the buy/configure page but when I add it to the cart, it shows the full price with no discount.

    Edit: now it's not showing at all again. They must be working on things.

    Nope seems to be DVRs only.

    Maybe that is why mine isn't showing up. I gave the HDs to my parents but left them on my account for easier remote scheduling and so I didn't have to have them call to transfer them.

    Oh well I will look into it later since I am not buying yet. I need to figure out what I am doing with the units I have.

    I was able to apply the MSD discount just now and placed my order. It wasn't working until just now.

    Well, for a brief moment it showed me the MSD lifetime price, so I added a Pro plus 3yr warranty and lifetime to my cart and when I pressed checkout my cart then contained the full price lifetime service instead of the MSD price. Now I haven't seen the MSD price appear at all again. Oh well, don't want it showing up while I'm away anyway, so I wouldn't actually order it for a couple weeks, and maybe the order page will work properly by then. :)

    I was wondering if they'd be shipping right away... didn't see mention if there was a future release data or if they're shipping now.

    Yes, Lifetime is showing up as $399 for me now too. I wish I could order one now though. I need to wait until it shows up at BestBuy.

    So I hope TiVo announces soon when the Roamio will be showing up at their retail partners.
