    I did the same thing. The reply I got was that it was not available and there was no release date. I did not get a question on where I got my info.

    I think that the 3/6 date is bogus.

    Might be reason enough to push the release back 24-48 hours. Don't want your big news to get lost in the Roku noise.

    It's not even 8am on the west coast yet, lets cut them some slack. But the fact that the chat reps know nothing and there's no press release does not bode well for today:( I'm still hoping to head to the Verzion store this weekend with my $7/month set top boxes in tow:)

    I have to admit. I am disappointed about today...so far. I thought the poster who said the 6th knew what she was talking about. I had been waiting to replace my HD with a P4 with the release of the Mini. When I read the post I decided to pull the trigger. I have a buyer for my HD and the P4 arrives today. I don't regret the purchase but I am disappointed I cannot marry it to a Mini. Tivo worries me in that they are very slow in releasing product and if the 6th was incorrect who knows when it will really become available. Oh well at least I get to play with a P4. The posters comments spread over the internet. I wish she would post and maybe update her original posting.

    People are disappointed a date that TiVo never announced has come and there is no announcement? Clearly it is coming judging by the updates to tivo.com. Have a little patience.

    I don't know about your setup, but for me, a $6 set top box from the cable company would be non-HD and non-DVR with no networking features. Since the Mini can watch recorded shows, it should be compared with an HDDVR.

    Comcast would charge a $10 HD fee which I am not paying now, plus $10 for a 1st HDDVR. (2nd ones would be $20 each).

    As it is for me now, I have 3 Tivos, all with cable cards. Comcast charges me $10 each for the 2nd and 3rd Tivos (additional digital outlet BS). No charges for Cable Cards themselves.

    With the Tivo Mini, I can get rid of at least one of my Tivos and loose $10/month Comcast fee, plus have reduced Tivo monthly fees ($6 vs $13). So it would save me $17/month and break even would be in less than 15 months. I think the pricing is quite reasonable. The only thing holding me back is that I must have Netflix streaming on the Mini, or its just not worth the switch.

    You are right. Tivo never did announce this. I am not upset with Tivo. I am more upset that I wanted to believe the OP. You are also correct in that Tivo obviously is close because of some of the Beta pages that were setup and are now gone. It may still come out this week. I hope so anyway. Even more I hope it lives up to the hype that I have created in my mind.:) The day is not over. It is just starting in Calif....

    The OP never said March 6th. That info came from other people in the "TiVo Mini Lives" thread.

    TiVo did tell dealers that the Mini's release date is March 6. The OP did say it was March 6

    The correct question is did the person who said that Tivo would release the Mini on Mar. 6th tell the truth? Has that person ever posted after their initial post? This is the only person who said that this info came from Tivo. How do we even know that it was not made up? Probably was not but still...

    I also attended the online dealer meeting for the Mini. This is legitimate, coming from TiVo.
