    Does anybody know when Best Buy will start selling the Stream? I've got $75 in Reward Zone coupons I'd like to apply to the unit purchase :)

    Well, it's not unheard of for retailers (online and brick and mortar) to have items available on release date.

    Dropped by my local BB and they did some searching in their system for the Stream and couldn't find it. This guy said probably need to wait 2-4 weeks...

    TiVo is probably filling initial orders and then once demand slows they will push it to retailers.

    I was out in the bay area this week and had time to kill so I stopped at a best buy yesterday. They didn't have it. I could practically see the tivo HQ from the store.

    Went back to the hotel and ordered one. When I landed back in austin today it was already waiting for me. It shipped from Dallas.

    Mine shipped from Dallas area, too. Of course, it's sitting in a warehouse 30 miles away all weekend before Monday's scheduled delivery. :)

    They are also in most Colorado Best Buy stores. They were just being put on the shelf when I walked in earlier this afternoon.

    Oh well. I just bought it from Tivo on Friday. UPS has Wednesday set for delivery. Could have just picked it up in a store in Manhattan on Monday and saved on the shipping. Gotta learn to be a little more patient next time.

    Early adopters have DNA that prevents brain cells from processing the concept of patience when new toys are involved. Studies in my house have shown it is physically impossible to be patient. Think of the shipping charges as your co-pay.

    They had one left when I was at the local BB earlier. Common sense prevailed and I didn't pick it up.

    I was at the Customer service counter for 55 minutes :eek: trying to return my Asus EA-66N Access Point(they never showed it as being shipped three weeks ago even though I received it two days after I ordered it so it took them a long time to figure out how to give me a refund... What a PITA..at least the CS lady was nice about it). And I had a lot of time to think about it while waiting.

    If I had a 10% off coupon I would have picked it up, but since I couldn't find a coupon I decided to wait. Plus I need Android support anyway.

    I got mine at Bestbuy.com - I love that you can order online and then go pick it up. No wait, no mess, no hassle.
