    Wanted to pick up a 3TB Bolt today and went to a Best Buy... none within a 250 mile radius. The guy says they’ve been discontinued.

    Tried Fry’s Electronics...nope.

    Really? Nothing in So Ca?

    Yeah. Lots of places to order but I’m just shocked there’s nowhere in So Ca I can just walk in and buy one...

    BestBuy switched to selling TiVo’s via their Magnolia storefronts some time ago, didn’t they?

    edit: Yeah, looks like the 3TB models aren’t available. Store pick-up only, and not available in any stores near Chicago or St. Louis.

    Of course, but I think the OP’s thrust was that they thought they’d be able to easily pick up a 3TB, today, and be up-and-running by evening. They were surprised to find nothing available at any of the usual suspect retail outlets.

    Yup. That’s it exactly.

    Once in a while I'll see an open box 500GB white Bolt refurb at Fry's but rarely. I think TiVo brick/mortar is basically dead until possibly the new manufacturing deal kicks in.

    BestBuy’s website indicated the other models were available within 10 miles up in Chicago; just not the 3TB.
