I was just told the same thing. Does Weakness actually have them ready to ship?

Weaknees told me they're expecting to ship Plus orders tomorrow. I don't have info on the Pro.

Their website says Pro "expected to ship" tomorrow too so I cancelled with Solid Signal as well.

I guess they didn't actually have them in stock. I switched to amazon/weaknees, no discount that way, but expedited shipping to Hawaii was around $16 versus $113 on weaknees web site.

I called SS and they still don't have the pro in stock. I canceled the order and just ordered one from Tivo.

I just got an email from a person there saying next couple days. what pisses me off is that if you go to the detailed product page for a particular model it says in stock http://www.weaknees.com/cart/TiVo-Ro...o-Roamio1.html

They probably aren't updating the page.

Try this one....http://www.weaknees.com/tivo-roamio-series5.php

Where does Weaknees ship from?

SS is saying that it is a manufacturer delay... I am wondering if the Weaknees date will change a few more times for Pro also...

I placed an order for a Roamio Plus, with SS, at about 2pm eastern today. I called in the order and the operator said that they were in stock, but I missed the cut off to have it shipped out today. I paid an addition $2.99 to get 2 day shipping with fed ex. She said that I will have it on Thursday. We will see...

Do you remember when you ordered? I ordered from WK on Thursday but have not received tracking info yet.

Did you order a pro or a plus? The landing page when you search for "roamio" on their site shows pro: "available for order" and plus and basic as "in stock".

I'm sure when I ordered my pro on Thursday it said "in stock" for the pro.

SS might have discontinued it since they were having issues getting them, and people were canceling orders.

I received an email today stating that they in fact never had the Plus in stock that I ordered and that it will not be in stock until the middle of next week. Ugh! I'm going to hold off on canceling the order, unless I can get one locally at BB. My BB stores all say that they're at the warehouse and that they should have them on Thursday.

Emailed weaknees about my order originally scheduled to ship out today. They hope to have an update later today on when to expect them. I'm about to say to hell with it and pick one up at best buy.

Spoke with a lady there after I got an email saying they could no longer guarantee the 2 day shipping I paid for. She said they've heard rumors it could show up any day not but they can't promise since it isn't in their warehouse. Essentially the order they were expecting from Tivo never showed up.

She said she would guess it will ship out Friday / Monday at the latest.

At this point I tried ordering from Amazon and then they said 2-3 weeks, so I switched to SS. Since Weaknees now says 8/30 for theirs as well.

I will keep the order and see what happens. Of course my big Tivo mini order shows up tomorrow, which is fun since I am replacing two tivo premieres that are not compatible with the mini.

Weaknees told me the same: that their expected shipment never arrived from TiVo. They did say, however, that the new 8/30 date only applies to new orders so if your order was in earlier, it'll ship earlier (provided they get them earlier).

Their update delays another 2 days to the 30th from what I see.

Yeah. I'm too impatient so I went to best buy and bought a plus. I'll just upgrade the drive myself down the road

Got an email from SS today:

Quote:
We have been told by Tivo that we should expect the units to arrive sometime this week. I will keep you posted.
So should be sooner rather than later.

Anyone get any info from SS? They are closed all weekend for the holiday and I see no status change on my order, so I am guessing the Tivos did not come in by Fri as they had hoped? Did ANY vendor get their shipment this week, or are they all still waiting?

Weaknees got a shipment in yesterday. I ordered this past Sunday and it shipped yesterday. Scheduled delivery from California is next Friday 9/6. I'm in Ohio.

Thanks for the info. Either SS got their shipment too and decided to wait until Mon to ship, or they are further down on the shipping priority list from Tivo.
