Ordered late last night, was shipped from Texas today. The TSN shows up in my account with a notice telling me to wait 24 hours for activation.

4-6 business days. Ugh. Hope it manages to somehow gets here by Friday.

Not much worse than Amazon Prime, though I totally would've sprung for the 3.99 overnight to get it tomorrow. oh well. Should be a fun weekend!

Ditto. Ordered a base and Pro online this afternoon and got shipping notices. Never had a box from TiVo take more than 3 days, so I'm cautiously optimistic I'll have them this week.

I can't believe I'm going to whine about this, but hey - this is a forum on the Internet, so here goes:

I ordered a Roamio today. I ordered with standard free shipping, which I expected to take five day, which I figured would take me until next Tuesday, assuming they would not ship until tomorrow at the earliest, and that Sundays didn't count. TiVo, to their credit, actually shipped the order today! UPS, to their credit, show that it should be delivered Friday. Yay, right? Sadly, I'm going to be out of town until the following Friday. [Robbers, take note - others will be home...]

I now have to PAY UPS EXTRA to have them hold the package beyond this Friday, or to have them ship it next Friday!

I can't believe I'm b*tching about this...

Wow! Just checked and mine are scheduled to be here Thursday! So, ground shipping for me == Two day air, but at no extra charge.

Taking Friday off to play ...

Wanted the base model, until I found out it was not full sized and OTA is useless for me since you can use it AT THE SAME TIME as cable. Then for more storage and [currently useless] Stream I was torn between the Plus and the rip-off-Pro.

I must be an idiot. I just ordered a Pro with Lifetime and max warranty. I don't even know if it will work with PyTiVo yet, AND I am throwing away OTA. I don't need 6 tuners, and I certainly don't need 450 hours of storage. Yeesh, this is what happens when I stay up too late. I am just tired of trying to decide what to do- and TV is one of those few things I will splurge on.

At least it is free shipping.

If others will be home, why would you need to change delivery of the package? If you're a UPS MyChoice Premium member, rescheduling shipments is free (becoming a premium member isn't free of course, but has other useful benefits if you get a lot of shipments by UPS).

Does Weakness ship from their location in CA, or somewhere a little more centrally located?

It'll be a long wait for me if its coming UPS ground all the way across the country.

(ordered last night, no tracking number yet)

Only because the others who are home might need to be pestered to remember to take in a package on the front porch - assuming UPS/TiVo is not requiring a signature for the item. I will probably just go this route and make sure they grab the package when I get the email that it has shown up.

I don't really receive enough packages from UPS that need special treatment for me to sign up for MyChoice Premium.

I guess what I'm really whining about is that for a guy who doesn't usually travel much, I'm going to be out of town for a whole week beyond the point this TiVo will arrive, and I won't be able to try it out right away.

Just FYI, Amazon shows available stock for shipping the base Roamio again. They were sold out last night.
