My problem will be the exact opposite when I finally get my hands on one, i.e., I'm going to attempt to spray paint it black because I don't want it's "Sony silver" ruining my gorgeous rack of all black high-end audio equipment.

On another note my local sales guy (who works for a Tweeter subsidiary) said they should have units in the next week and he'll hold one for me even though they still have 32 committed to presales. Apparently they got units last week but they were all spoken for and he didn't know I was interested or I could have had one of those. Just one more reason it has paid in the long run to establish a longterm relationship with a B&M salesman/dealer.

He also informed me of two things I did not know about... The first is Samsung will be delivering a HD DirectTivo in August. The other is that Mitsubishi has also committed to manufacturing one and should have one out by the end of the year. Now I know the Samsung will be "Sony silver" but there is a small glimmer of hope the Mits won't.
