I just bought a Roamio Pro from Solid Signal for $548.99 and their entire Roamio line is discounted, plus free ground ship and no tax!

PS - Oh and 2 day shipping all the way to Hawaii was only about $12.50. TiVo wanted about $115 for that!!!

They have been around for years. I ordered my DirecTV equipment from them in 2004 or so.

Thanks for pointing this deal out. Didn't see a free Ground Shipping option, but no biggie with the $12.50 2-day shipping.

Total for a Pro + 2 Day Shipping was $561.93.

I also ordered a pro today from SS. When I first did a search for Tivo Roamio it shows the 3 models and says all are in stock. While I was looking around on their site at other stuff after I place the order I noticed they have additional text that says "Availability: Usually ships the same day" on a lot of stuff. That text is there for the plus and 4 tuner model but not the pro so I started a chat and asked if the pro was in stock. Its not, but they said they should have it in the next day or so. We'll see.

If it doesn't ship early next week I think I might cancel the order. It is a good price though.

I also highly endorse Solid Signal. When I had DirecTV, they sold me specific equipment that I wanted instead of rolling the dice and getting whatever D* decided to send me.

Are you sure it's actually "on its way"? I ordered before you did ( as I was the topic starter) and they're telling me now that it won't ship until Monday Aug 26 at the earliest. Also I stand corrected on the original quote of $12.50 2 day shipping. They informed me that since I'm in Hawaii then it would be $45.46! When I placed the order it only charged and accepted the $12.50 rate all the way through. I'm starting to feel a little "baited and switched", but the total cost with shipping is still $6 less than retail with no tax so I agreed to the higher price.

Solid Signal is saying Monday at the earliest for me too. Told me the Plus model was "backordered" even though the site still says In Stock.

By "on its way" I just meant I ordered it. It has not shipped yet. I'm in South Carolina so the $12.50 shipping charge should get it to me, I hope.

They did say on their site they would recalculate shipping charges for Hawaii, etc, and get back to you if it changes. Mine changed to $40.xx.

$12.50 would have been a great deal for HI. I went with the new charge too.

This is the email I got from SS.

Thank you for your recent purchase with SolidSignal.com.

Please be advised we unable to accommodate your 2 day shipping request at this time. The product is not scheduled to ship until Monday 8/26. We apologize for the delay and any inconvenience. We do appreciate your business. Would you like to retain the 2 day shipping, or should we change it to standard ground? Please advise.

I advised them to ship it ground and I don't have a lot of confidence it will ship on Monday.

When I look to the left all I see is my office printer because I've been doing this forum via my iphone and the Forumrunner app. I can't see any of you're info.

Which island?

Also David!

Makawao, Maui.

Called Oceanic TW, they are mailing me the m-card. I have an S3 with 2 single stream cards, will return them. At least it's self-install now, it wasn't when I did it last time.

I just looked at Solid Signal and the shipped price for the Plus to me (in CT) was $388.94 and Weaknees was $375, still the best deal I can see.

Did yours ship yet? I replied to the email, but later in the day than you did. I don't see any change in order status. It says "In process".

I just saw your other post where they told you it won't ship until Monday. Sigh.

No mine hasn't shipped, hopefully Monday. Makawao huh? I just had dinner with a coworker over here who lives there. He paraglides there and I saw your handle on here, Icarus. It made me think of flying. His name is Rich D. If you happen to know him?

I placed an order for a Pro on Friday, and got the "we'll ship it Monday" email a few hours later.

I called today and was told that they are expecting the Pros this coming Friday, or early next week.

I went ahead and cancelled my order.
