The thread has invaluable information that should be available for reference.



Don't worry, it was just closed, not deleted.

Well, the thread's still *there*, just locked. I can't see what the point really was. Is there a database reason again a long thread? If it's direct access (and I believe the database is) what's the harm? In any event, it's there, down a bit.

They should have just moved it. I think most of us didn't care where the thread was.

Robert,

Will we get an email with a tracking number the same day that our order ships?

Thanks,

Jim

It would be immensly useful if we did. Some of Roberts posts implied (at least to me) that mailing tracking numbers may be a bit delayed. They have to ship all the units first, then will get to mailing tracking numbers. Hopefully the delay won't be more than the delievery time.

That's my concern. I want to take the day off of work, but I have overnight shipping on my order.

For example...if it ships today, but VE does not get the tracking email out until late tonight or early Tuesday morning. Then I'm screwed and will not be able to get my order until Wed.

My hold turned into a charge today. Wendy at VE indicated it would ship Tuesday or possibly Wednesday.

Wendy called me this morning (I called on Friday to upgrade my shipping) and indicated she expected my order (#79) to ship on Wednesday. She said it might go out on Tuesday, but she's guessing Wednesday at this point.

FWIW.

I read them both and this one has a post from Robert and Feels more like the old one, so I posted here. I expect The Doug factor will decide.

Maybe. I offered the other thread my (IMHO) comment that this one had twice the posts and twice the views as theirs, FWIW. I think wherever Robert and Doug go is it, and we haven't heard/seen a word from Doug. I'm tired of checking the entire forum for 'preorder xxxxx'.

So the shipping point is definitely NY? Last week Graham from VE said the shipping point was "influx"

While posting tracking numbers might be a bit difficult to coordinate, perhaps Robert would be able to post a nightly list of the order numbers shipped that day...

If anything, I am deeply appreciative of Robert and all the work I know this must have been for him and his business. Hopefully, he is making enough $ off of this to make it all worthwhile so that he does it again for the HD-DVR1000 (well, here's hoping at least)

Still no definitive word on how many are going out in the first batch? or where it is officially shipping from? I don't know why it hasn't been answered in the past thread or this one. Lets say hypothetically, that I'm number 400.....am I in the second batch? the third? or would I be into mid-May? I wish that one question could be answered b/c there are many who aren't in the priveledged first 200 who would love to have an idea on when we can expect our new toy. I know we probably can't get 'exact' numbers, but an estimate would be great.

Doug

Where are they being shipped from? Robert said he expected to ship on the 6th...is that from CA or NJ? Since I have UPS Ground it makes a big difference, only 2 days if its from NJ for me...

Robert expects to receive them tomorrow, AFAIK. He is shipping them from the East Coast.

I just talked to Wendy from VE. My DirecTiVo and dish are shipping today, my HDTiVo should ship on Wed. and probably all be here by Friday. BTW, make sure you confirm your shipping address if you're shipping it to someplace other than your home, such as your office, etc.

I don't know what you mean by "definite", but it's in the first thread. Robert said he'll receive about 200 this week and 250 next week. And the third should come toward the end of April.

> Lets say hypothetically, that I'm number 400.....am I in the second batch? the third? or would I be into mid-May?

You will probably be in the second.
