No word on my order yet either, but I've got the dispute letter to Capital One drafted just in case.

What's going on Friday?

I protest this thread.

I think I will have to avoid this thread like it was a White Castle that was closed on Sundays run by someone with an alternative lifestyle.

Good Friday...a Christian holiday sometimes observed by non-Christian companies.

they shouldn't have closed the thread, they should have just moved it to happy hour. or is there a rule you can't talk about tivo related things in happy hour?

my charge is still on my card, keeping my fingers crossed.

What is your deal? Really? I can't figure this one out, unless you are the same person who is TMF? A simple call to VE would have any problem you have, straightened out. This is not their web site, maybe you are confused between the two.

Either that, or you are trolling.

Which is it?

Question

My Discover card has been charged for my HDTiVo, but that's all that was charged, along with it's shipping.

I also ordered a regular DirecTiVo. Will that be charged separately?

New PreOrder Thread ???

So, is this thread for "new" preorders (ie, ordered today, but before release (hopefully!) tomorrow)?

j/k. I guess this will be the new, official unofficial thread picking up with post #5372.

Is this where Doug and Robert will now post the latest updates?

P.S. I know /jab's appearance and the locking of the thread was pure coincidence -- wasn't it?

Anyone care for some kool-aid?

Question

For those of us who are new to DirecTV, what deals should we be able to get other than free installation? The only thing I know of is $10 off Total Choice for 6 months. I'm getting both an HDTiVo and a regular DTiVo...

Good question. I'm getting the dish and installation included, but can we get the $10 off for 6 months in addition to that?

If nothing unexpected shows up on my credit card and the unit ships on time, everybody goes home happy.

If the known issues such as the shipping "upgrade" are not addressed by the time my order is filled, well, it won't be my problem for long.

I have it on good word that DirecTV dealers like Value Electronics are making several hundred dollars profit on every unit, so I expect that everything will be done correctly the first time. If that doesn't happen, there will be consequences.

I hope someone makes sure Robert knows what is going on here and that TMF doesn't get away with this.

If you have gone to the trouble of drafting a dispute letter, why not just give VE a call to ensure they ship as you request and that no mistakes are made. They have a toll-free number and answer pretty quickly.

Because he threw down a challenge and big men don't back down from challenges.

TMF

Out of curosity.... Do you deal with all vendor's this way?
Wait until there is a problem, and then deal with it afterwards?

Instead of making a 30second phone call to help avoid or verify their isn't a problem in the first place?

Robert has repeatedly commented that he rushed to judgement the email that went about "upgrading" the shipping method. Some other people have been contacted via that ancitient technology ... land line phone call ... to verify their shipping options.

And regards to the last part: "the first time", you must have a patience level of zero. If you expect EVERY single financial transaction you do to be perfect the first time...... yikes... I would hate to be behind you in line during holiday shopping season when an item is $0.15 overpriced by mistake....

TMF please end this... Call VE, verify that they are not upgrading your shipping for yourself. If you call, verify it, and then they still charge you for the upgraded shipping... Then you have a quality claim... but other than... Please for the sake of spin-off thread... End it..
