Personally, I'm going to do a wait and see how many bugs the unit comes with before ponying up the cash.
I have the HD receiver to fill the void, even if I can't record them.

I don't want to speak out of turn, but seek a pre-order and ye shall find one soon enough....

I could care less about the few bugs that might remain. I am too busy suffering through commercials, no live-TV pause, needing to be home, etc. to watch by HDTV.

Enough!

do you guys think there'll be a deal to upgrade to HDTivo?

I'm tempted for the current $99 HDTV deal (I only have a dual LNB w/ round dish) but wondering if I should just wait for the HDTivo.

Looked at ValueElectronics offer. It seems he has all the bases covered. I find the UMF pulling pretty hard at the chance to save $100.00.

<http://www.valueelectronics.com/avsTC.htm>. That's an offer I couldn't refuse. Are these people reputable?

Why can't they give faster shipping options on line?

They are reputable, I purchased my Zenith SAT-520 from them.
I am going to go with that offer, Guranteed $100 off the lowest price out there... Can't really go wrong.

Guess I will have to use the BB Certificates else where.

For faster Shipping Options, give them a call.

I'd been planning to order from these folks anyway. I got mine in too. The page had been visited 133 times already. If everyone of those visits resulted in an order, they're going fast.

The only thing that wasn't obvious to me was how to deal with signing up for service if you're a new customer, so I just paid my deposit and put a note in the comments field that I still need to sign up for service.

I know I bought a multi-switch or something from these guys recently. I'd definitely remember if I had any problems, it was only a few months ago.

I assume that the discount from the deposit (up to $100) is off the FINAL selling price, after any price match. Anyone see any reason to think that wouldn't be the case?

No reason not to think that... Plus these vendor has made a significant amount of business from the AVSForum and TivoCommunity.

If they re-nig or don't honor the original deal in good faith, they will get blasted by one of their key sources of business.

Yup,
I'm in too. Although I called and actually ordered it over the phone because I needed to order a new dish as well (it's really disappointing to me to have to pay 100 bucks for a dish...but heck, at least I'm not in Communist NRTC!)

That Wendy over at valueelectronics is very nice...

All you needed to do was call DirecTV and tell them you want to buy a HD receiver but need a 3-LNB dish.

It'd be a lot easier (for me at least) just to give me the option on the order form. I just called them and they were somewhat clueless about it. I have to call them back in a few minutes to find out the answer, and she didn't seem to understand the work "options", "well I guess you could overnight it". 2 day shipping is usuaully a good compromise between anticipation and expense.

Ground shipping takes forever. If I could just go down to my local B&M store and pick one up in the meantime I would be somewhat miffed.
