That's what was said last time and here they are again.
If someone buys one when you get it take a look at the manufacture date and post it.
That might give us some idea if TiVo decided to make more or if they rounded up a bunch of left over ones from various locations and are selling them out through Amazon.
JUST ordered my 4th unit today and will add a 5tb hdd.
I ordered another one too.. I might end up using it to target another nearby market with a separate antenna, or I might just flip it to turn a profit when these dry up again.
Got it today
Made in Mexico
Proudly made in mexico, take that Trump!
Sounds like TiVo had more made guess they decided a lower cost Roamio OTA made more sense than releasing a higher cost Bolt OTA. Wonder how long they will continue to have new Roamio OTA units made. At this price point there really is little justification for OTA users to buy anything else.
It seems strange to me that they are still manufacturing them, yet they aren't selling them directly on their website.
Just got mine today (Amazon Prime member with Sunday delivery!), and I have the same date as well.
A bit more info: On the side of the Roamio OTA box (not the outer Amazon box), it says that my box is "Case 889 of 933?" Not sure if this means TiVo made 933 more Roamio OTAs for Amazon, but perhaps this gives us an indication of how many are available on Amazon.
Yes I tend to agree, but it might have something to do with marketing, perhaps they don't want something with cheap lifetime on their own site or perhaps they want something to come up when people search Amazon for OTA DVR that competes with the other OTA DVRs being sold.
My box has "case 873 of 933"
You do not know if other TiVo models were in the same shipment.
Also remember that Amazon has so many distribution centers that may not mean a lot.
That was my first thought as well.
Mine is due in Tuesday from NJ.........
Got mine today - 424 of 933.
My first thought is, "Holy cow this TiVo is small compared to my TiVo HD!"
Now I need to search the forums for how to get TiVo CS to transfer this unit to my account, as I've read they're pre-registered to some Amazon account.
I called them yesterday and spoke to Victoria (very nice woman! Got to her by pushing option 3 after calling in). She had my OTA on my account within minutes and I signed in to my TiVo account an hour later or so and it was sitting in there along with my TiVo HD! Hopefully you get a good CS rep like Victoria who will make it a very smooth transition.
Techbargains has this listed first in their email. I don't know how many units are available. I wouldn't wait too long
Mine came today, manufactured 26 Nov 2015, case 24 of 900, activated 18 Dec 2015. Transfer took less than 5 minutes, it's updating now.
So you can't just add these to your account online? That's going to be a pain..
It isn't hard, just did it a couple of weeks ago. Just called up, told the CSR it was an Amazon unit, she put me on hold for a couple of minutes and then came back and told me that everything was all set.
YMMV with a different CSR but at least in my case it was painless.
Same here, my first two with FREE slide remote were bought direct from tivo, third amazon, fourth amazon. my 5th parts machine woot 30$
