    They want $60 for 2-Day and over $135 for Next Day to IL Chicago suburb...Give me a break and you have to pay tax. Free shipping is 5-7 days delivery time...

    Why not order using Amazon Prime?

    Just gett free shipping and it costs zero. Shipping from TiVo has alwys been high to receive it within a day or two. Although the free shipping only takes a few days depending on where you live. I live in teh DC area and I think it took only three days the last time I had a box shipped from TiVo with free shipping.

    Don't you have a Best Buy near you? They should be getting them soon, I would think. No shipping. No delivery wait.

    I missed out on the Pro units from Amazon...I have Prime, so I would have definitely just snapped one up from them. Might just wait for Best Buy now...

    Any boxes I ever ordered from TiVo have shipped out of Texas, and made it to the Northeast in 3 to 4 business days. That's pretty awesome IMO. Especially for free shipping.

    The only option I had when I ordered mine this morning was $5 for 2 day.

    Double-check that order in your account. Did it stick? Because with the first order I placed, I saw the $5 offer, but then it magically changed to $96 after checkout, which I had to promptly cancel. The second order attempt had the correct prices.

    They said the shipping cost that shows on your order is incorrect. I called earlier to cancel my order when I saw Amazon had them and that is what they told me. I still saved over $60 on Amazon by not having to pay tax though.

    They ain't Amazon. They don't have warehouses full of slaves working 24/7. :D

    And all they ship are Tivos. I would expect shipping to be higher.

    But then again they don't have the middleman either.

    I'm glad I saw this note. I thought I had selected $5 shipping, but I got hit with the $60+ shipping. I phoned in, and had to cancel the original order and re-create the order on the phone.

    Just go with Amazon's free 5-7 days shipping. Is 5 days REALLY that bad to wait? I mean, an additional 3 days to get it is not a big deal if you ask me. Besides, we've been waiting this long for these new TiVo Roamios so what is a few more days anyway?

    As much as I love my TiVos, TV shouldn't be THAT important. And as the saying goes anyway... "all good things come to those who wait" ;)

    My Roamio Pro from Amazon.com just shipped! I have Prime, so it was 3.99 for overnight shipping, no tax. I ordered it shortly after I posted the original post in this thread and figured I could wait a week or two for it...

    I ordered my Roamio 8/20 about mid day with 2nd day Prime shipping. Got it yesterday since it shipped from a Texas warehouse.

    They still show stock on the base units. Pros have been sold out since early Tues.

    Thank you for the information. I hope I will get it tomorrow. After that I know I will have a hard time trying to find someone that will know how to un-pair the cable card from the old premiere to the new Romeo.

    My cable company in Orlando is Brighthouse Networks. They are always polite but hardly know about cable cards. Last time they deactivated my two tivos cable cards and it was a pain to activated back.

    I don't know why you have to unpair a CC. I had to replace a CC on my Premiere XL, and I did not have to have Comcast pair the new card.

    Hello

    Did you have only basic channels only and no tuner adapter? Just curious.


    Don't know the reason why but one year ago when I exchanged a damaged tivo for a working one the basic channels did work without calling the cable company. The premium channels (HBO) did not.

    I understand they need to pair the unique host id number with the cable card. Maybe I am wrong.

    But will try to see without calling them to see if I get lucky.

    Regards.
