    Guy on YouTube says Tivo states to use power, not USB.

    Ask them for a refund of the shipping charges, if you paid for expedited shipping. They are admitting they caused the delay.

    I've been told all day FedEx will deliver by end of day. It is now 743 in Connecticut. Is there a chance this thing will show? Love to play with it tonight.

    I have the GANA switch that is 3 items down in the link. The new Stream 4K is working well through the switch. No issues thus far.

    Well I just called FedEx and in spite of all day being told it will be here by end of day, it ain't coming. I see no reason to go nutd cuz this is free shipping. Any time I spend may benefit someone but not me.

    I'm furious. I usually have good luck with deliveries. I am under the impression FedEx delivers on sunday. Just read in this forum they dont. Great

    Can the TiVo app be easily pulled off the stick? Linus Tech Tips just reviewed the new Nvidia Shield and it looks awesome.

    Mine was delivered at 7:15PM today.
    Although the second one was supposed to be delivered today too. They had updated the delivery day from Sunday to Saturday. But according to the tracking it never even made it to my area on Saturday. Even though it still shows Saturday as the expected delivery date.

    EDIT: Now the delivery for the second was just shows "Pending". So I would expect to get it here on Monday. Assuming FedEx ground delivers on Mondays.

    I didn’t order this, but I’ve been getting stuff regularly delivered by UPS just fine recently. Fedex appears to be just horrible.

    Something I ordered was shipped with Fedex on Monday. It was supposed to arrive this past Thursday, but lost a day because the “barcode label was unreadable and returned”. Then it was supposed to be Friday, but was slow so it was changed to Saturday (today). It didn’t arrive despite the tracking info showing it left the FedEx center 23 minutes away from me at 4:35 am today. It still shows as arriving today and it’s after 10 pm here, so it’s obviously not. I don’t think Fedex delivers on Sunday so maybe it will get here Monday.

    Meanwhile something I ordered was shipped with UPS Thursday and arrived today.

    For those here using the TiVo Stream 4K for Sling TV, if you are also using the AirTV 2, do your local, over the air (OTA) channels, show up in your guide?

    I think it's from Prime. My suggestions include CBS stuff that I get in Prime due to my CBS Prime subscription.

    I meant to use it as a client from a Roamio/Bolt/Edge host without having to transcode the content (in the same manner a Mini natively pulls MPEG2 or MPEG4 content from its host).

    FEDEX is the absolute worst! I ordered two streams Wednesday and paid for overnight delivery. They shipped Wednesday afternoon and I still don’t have them. The tracking changes everyday. It kept saying that they would be delivered Saturday....NOPE! It now has delivery scheduled for Tuesday!!! I called them and they basically said sorry for you’re luck we’re busy. He could care less. I am so disappointed.

    I think Connecticut is the bottleneck:

    14 hours just sitting in Middletown!

    As an aside, the package literally had to drive by my house (and my entire State) to get to the Seekonk distribution center. Yeah, I think FedEx needs some work on their operational distribution chain.

    Most of these shipments are ground, dont expect super fast delivery, in the past they used cargo on planes and we all know theres not that many planes flying around now days.

    For me, the bottleneck is my local distribution center. Things make it there fast enough and then they sit on tractor trailers waiting to be offloaded onto vans for home delivery for 24-48 hours.

    They blame the pandemic but shockingly UPS, USPS and Amazon aren't having these issues.

    FedEx delivers 7 days a week. I have another FedEx package coming today (allegedly). TiVo's free shipping doesn't "qualify" for Sunday delivery, FedEx told me.

    So even though they're late, FedEx will just sit on your package for an extra day.
