    Interesting note: The Best Buy page has a note on the bottom stating that the S3 is available at select Best Buy stores only, and suggests checking availability near you. According to the results, all six stores in my area have it in stock :eek: :)

    True, but I added it to my cart for store pickup, and all the stores went unavailable.

    Had a glimmer of hope of getting it tomorrow.

    I added it to my cart before making my post, and it brought me to checkout. I went back before posting this post, clicked checkout, and then continue on the resulting page - I stopped short of actually paying for it. Yet... :D

    I was able to almost check out if I wanted it shipped. It wouldn't let me pick any local stores though.

    When you actually click check out, it says backordered. They aren't in stock quite yet...at least not here in DC/VA.

    Now I was able to pick my local store, but clicking continue just loads the same page. Guess I'll have to wait until it's fully working in their system.

    BK:

    YOU BETTER NOT TAKE MY SERIES 3!!

    (I'm a Northern VA native too) :p

    I'll be at my local Best Buy at 10AM sharp to see if they have it.

    Odd...

    Now my local stores are listing the Series3 as in stock. Could have sworn they said backordered when I checked 15 minutes ago.

    Tysons Corner, here I come!

    WAIT!

    Aren't you the same guy that was bashing the TiVo for being no better than a :: shudder :: Motorola DVR box in another thread?

    If you actually try to buy one online for store pickup, they become unavailable during the checkout process.

    Comcast doesn't offer Motorola DVRs in N. Virginia. They offer....Scientific Atlanta 8300HD boxes with outdated 1.87 SARA software. Junk.

    I now have FiOS and their Motorola DVR, but they've given no indication that they intend to use the Tivo software.

    What alternative do I have? :(

    The family has a Scientific Atlanta 8300 HD box in the family room, so I know what you're talking about.

    I hope they're available before the end of the week. With the current financing promotion you can get 36 months no interest for combined HT purchases over $1k. I'll go ahead and pick up 3 if that's the case. I just hope I can still use this 12% off coupon for one of the units. So leave me a few units in NorthernVA.

    Go to Electronics > Tivo DVRs/Digital Video Recorders > Tivo Brand Store. Then click the Tivo Series 3 picture.

    I can't get beyond the page where it figures your sales tax....it then goes back to the page before figuring the tax. I can't "checkout".
