    My second delivery was scheduled for Sunday. Then they rescheduled it for Saturday. Now this morning I see it is rescheduled for Sunday again. Of course it's almost 1Pm now, and it's not even showing that it's on a truck, Out for Delivery.

    Why aren't there cargo planes flying? I understand passenger planes not flying since there are 90% fewer passengers. But there are still a ton of packages that need to be delivered.

    a lot of cargo was delivered by passenger planes. also with corona i imagine packages aren't processed as fast. anyway if ever there was a time to give delivery time speeds a break then this is it.

    Ive had one for a while, I ordered another one on day of release,Fedex was supposed to deliver yesterday but it took forever for the truck to go from arridzona to here. So its coming today, and lately they have been delivering on Sundays.

    In general, everything I buy thats not from Amazon comes quicker than if I had ordered from Amazon. Including FedEx shipments.

    Free shipping. It had originally said Sunday when it first shipped, then switched to Saturday, then it was clear when it was 3 states away it wouldn't be delivered yesterday. Then last night it re-updated to today and sure enough I got it.

    Lucky you.

    FedEx told me my shipment didn’t “qualify” for Sunday delivery.

    Doesn’t matter anyway, it’s still on a truck.

    Be careful, I know first hand they can be quite sensitive about that NDA.

    Well, my TiVo Stream 4K is on it’s way now. With all the usb powered gadgets in my entertainment center now, does anyone recommend a good USB power distribution brick, like a power strip with just USB ports?

    I’m eyeing this one from Anker. I’ve got several Anker products and they seem like a solid company.

    According to this review the first update is coming Tuesday (May 12, 2020)!



    This was the Beta Tester from before, otherwise I have no idea how he would know this...

    I just received mine yesterday, and am still playing with it. Things that I've noted:

    No integration with:
    CBS All Access
    HBO GO
    YouTube

    I have a Live TV subscription with Hulu, and it's a bit of a mess (much more difficult to navigate than on Hulu on my phone).

    I do like the voice search though - it pulls up programs quickly... though for some reason, I tried pulling up a brand new show from Hulu, but it only found teasers, and not the actual two or three already-available episodes.

    The feeling is "meh" at this point... waiting to see what Google will do with its next-gen/upcoming Chromecast/Android TV thing.

    I’m in Ohio and just got mine. Ordered it around 6pm on release day. I was actually turning into my neighborhood a bit ago and saw the FedEx truck leaving.

    I used the free shipping option. It was saying Sunday all along but I didn’t have much faith that would happen, so pleasantly surprised.

    I’m curious to see how this thing compares to my Firestick 4K. I’m expecting some improvements and some drawbacks.

    I may end up using both of these if I can switch inputs with one of the two remotes.
