    Weakness states on their webpage that the Elite is shipping October 7th.

    Anyone seen any other specific availability info or found somewhere to actually submit a pre-order?

    (if the date is true, I'm glad - I'd like at least one Elite ASAP and was beginning to think we weren't going to see the box until well in November)

    They did say mid October was their goal so I agree I hope that is the date.

    Interesting. This is the first release date I've seen (and I've been snooping around a bit). If accurate, that's pretty fast.

    A Friday release, though? Maybe shipping from the factory with official "Retail" release the following week... But I have no idea how such things work. :)

    Until they announce the Q for retail it's hard to justify upgrading.

    They did. It is called the Elite for retail which is what this thread is talking about.

    After I posted I thought you might have lol.

    I do wish TiVo had rolled the Elite out with the Premiere. I would have bought two of those rather than the two XLs. I could see a use for a Preview, but in my house it would only get limited use when I have someone staying with me.

    I'll be waiting until everyone is done complaining about it and the bugs are worked out it which may mean i will never get one!

    My guess is they are waiting to announce the Elite for retail until they have a good handle on the quality associated with the streaming updates in 14.9 software. From an RCN perspective they can control the environment very well through MoCA installation so streaming may not be as big an issue. I would like to see them submit the waiver request to the Commission so that when it works it will be available in a short time-period. Ultimately, the retail version of the Preview will replace the TiVo HD that I have in my 2nd room.

    If they had rolled the ELite out with the Premiere, the Elite would have cost $700 or $800(if not more)
    When the Premiere launched the prices were $300 and $500 for the two Premiere boxes.

    Right and plus the old lifetime prices the MSD Elite would have run $1000 vs $900 it will now. I would have paid an extra $100-$200 to have it almost 2 years ago.

    Looks like Weaknees scrubbed their site of the date.

    How did you stumble on that site? It doesn't look like the add to cart button is on the coming soon page.

    googled elite weaknees and it is the top result.

    I was actually looking for the original page to see the removed date.

    Ahhh... that makes sense. They have the order page ready as soon as they get the go from TiVo. Looks like their SEO is working well too.
