    Same here with the TiVo store. Order placed on Tue morning and when I checked today it said "order processing". If you look at their FAQ you are supposed to contact them after 3 days if you haven't received a tracking number.

    Wouldn't the limitation be on the hardware/controller side of the drive? If not, reformatting the drive would render it useless for the Tivo.

    Regarding shipping. Sitting on 20 minutes of hold waiting for Tivo to answer the phone. Ordered Tues morning which was supposedly same day shipping????

    Web site still says 'order processing' And the cancel order is gone

    Got a live person after 25 minutes and she took my order info, put me on hold for a few minutes and never returned. 20 minutes later she returned to tell me 4 to 6 business days, because they were having problems in the warehouse and stuff. :mad:

    Wish the cancel order button was still there :thumbsdown:

    Arghh! I waited a bit too long to order. Now, TiVo, Best Buy, and Western Digital are all out of stock.

    bought one ( the official WD drive ) at Best Buy Saturday after the clueless clerk in the PC dept. said "they don't carry it". Found it in the Tivo area.

    minor install problem, but 2nd reboot fixed that and it works fine. very easy to install

    ordered last week from tivo, got it today (Mon) 2 day. Works great, but after the reboot that initialized the drive, one of my tuners was dark. Another reboot seems to have solved that.

    When starting tivo the first time after adding the drive, it took a couple of minutes to start the init routine even tho the sys info screen showed the drive. You can push it from one of the menu options, but I just waited 2 minutes or so. You will then need to rebot again to init the drive. Give it 30 min or so.

    I'm happy now.

    Not sure if I will get this, I don't know if I have a spot to put it in my entertainment center... I just started to transfer stuff from my S3 to an external HDD attached to my computer and that works great right now. I am glad Tivo did this, but I like MRV and TTG more.

    If I were you guys I wouldn't pay anything extra for shipping in order to try and get these drives faster. Most S3 units are not getting 9.2 right away. I have tried several times and even called Tivo after using the priority request form last week and they had no answer for me. My unit is stuck at 9.1

    I could use kickstart but I would rather wait for the official route at this point.

    Saw that our local BB had one on the shelf. Though priced $20 higher than the Tivo website. The clerk that did the price check said he didn't even know they carried it.

    Just got 9.2 tonight, was starting to wonder if I was going to get it as it was almost a week since I requested, so last night I requested it again through the priority page and got it tonight.

    Maybe something weird was going on the first time you requested so re enter your info in the priority page again :up:

    Not surprising. Best Buy, in my experience, is anything but.
