    Expecting my RoPro in next couple of days. Quick question : is an HDMI cable included? My preparatory "to do" list now has cable card, TA, and USB cable on it. Do I need to add an HDMI as well?

    Just to let folks know, I just used my advisors code today (2/4/2014) to order a new Tivo Roamio Plus and a Mini! So the codes still seem to work. I'm excited!

    HDMI cables are NOT included with the purchase of any TiVo Premiere Roamio DVRs.

    I like buying online from Monoprice.

    Not true they were included with the Premieres but no longer with the Roamios for some reason known only to Tivo. They can't even drop a friggin $2 cable in the box, seriously??

    What's even weirder is that they are included with the Mini (at least they were when I got my Minis).

    Yes, I received my Pro and Mini yesterday. The Mini had an HDMI cable and the Pro did not.

    Haven't set it up yet. Dreading the cablecard pairing with Verizon.

    I dont know if its something easy to get or something i talked my way into. I did pay about $25 more for the box ($325) than i would have with the panel deal, but the savings versus the full $14.99 that it would have been with the panel deal make that up in a couple months. When they told me that, at first i told them that seemed fairly ridiculous and that i was considering all options, whether that be a new tivo or some sort of HTPC (which is true, if im replacing hardware i'm weighing all options)

    Swung by the local TWC office here in Huntersville a few minutes ago. Got a cable card & TA. Happened to mention I was headed next to get an HDMI cable. CSR reached under the counter & handed me a brand new one. I asked him what I owed for the cable. He said "free of charge. You are a good customer."

    The CSR we had on the phone for over 3+ hours offered us a great deal on service as well (I think she was trying to appease us as we were having so much trouble!)

    Great to hear this! :up:

    I get things like this if I show cleavage and smile!! (lol!) :p

    Aw, sorry it didn't work out :(

    Abby, we're going to attempt hooking up the PRO using an ethernet cable tonight. I totally understand your frustration because our unit never connected to our router.

    The folks at phone support told me that if both wired and wireless didn't work they'd replace the unit. I did have to ask for a supervisor though.

    Sorry!

    Yep, that's what they told me on Saturday. That's why it has a RMA # taped to the box.

    Aw, thanks javabird! :D Not sure what else we can do though :confused:

    Where do you live? Again, someone might be willing to come out and help when you got your new box.
