Advertisements Anyone else run into Tivo shortages? Or are your local stores all well stocked. I am wondering if we are just having a local shortage or if this is more broadly based. I got caught. Naturally, my sister let's me know at the last minute that they need another Tivo due to them becoming addicted to the Tivo way and now refusing to watch the other TVs in the house without Tivo. In a mocking tone that only sisters can achieve, she asked me why I gave her family heroin. OK- so too late to go online, off to Compusa but sold out of all 40 hour units (snagged a 160GB drive at 25cents/gig though). Compusa online said they had them in stock, ok so when you need their inventory system most, it is on the fritz. Ok, so I drive to two other stores. NO 40 Hour Tivos in my city's Compusa. Guess that free promotion kind of wiped them out a little early. No sweat, Go to BestBuy and their are tons of people in the aisle looking at the Tivo videos and trying to make up their mind. Fine. 4 Tivos with 40GB left, so I snag that one. At least it wasn't as bad as the poor bastards who were waiting from early morning for the XBox 360's. Only this device is not this year's model nor is it last year's model. Amazing times.
