    TiVo Roamio Plus and Pro are being advertised in this weekend's (sept 22nd) best buy ad. Normal msrp of course. It is on one of the last pages which talks about magnolia and a note to 'check availablity'.

    Hmm...I have a nib pro and mini in the closet I picked up wed.

    I've been debating the roamio or buying a used TiVo with lifetime to add to my s3 and HD. Xl4 with lifetime used don't seem like a good deal vs upgrading with lifetime. Sigh...

    My local Best Buy has a Roamio Pro display model. It wasn't running in any special showroom mode, so I was able to browse around the interface. Unfortunately, they didn't have a cable feed hooked up, so I wasn't able to watch TV or record anything. But browsing around the menus was impressive. It's super fast and responsive. I'm looking forward to eventually upgrading.
    Look at the dates of posts, and read the thread.

    Ahwatukee...
    When I spoke to a TiVo rep two days ago, she told me that the only way for TiVo to honor its warranty is to buy directly from Tivo rather than Amazon or Best Buy?? That doesn't sound right to me!

    She doesn't know what she is talking about.

    If she gets a commission on any warranty sale she does know what she talking about.

    It is not legal to provide false information about the companies warranty purposes. If she's ignorant that's one thing, if she's willfully deceiving customers, that is another. TiVo's website clearly states that if a retailer replaces a TiVo unit under their own in house extended warranty, TiVo will transfer the lifetime service.
