Can I add an order for the Harmony remote after placing an order earlier today for the HD-DVR250 if my wife wants one?



Yes. Just go back using the same url to get to the special avs/TC page.

BTW, doesn't anyone like the Harmony and other special offers?

I mentally filtered out the ad until a lot later, I was quite focussed when I found your page. Also I have a Pronto 3000 anyway. What other special offers? I don't see any.

It was at 1037 when I placed my order just now. Hope I am in the first 300. Is there any way to know given an order ID?

Didn't order anything else becase I did not want to be distracted.

Yes Luke, you must stay focused. Feel the Force around you...

Oh, wait. Your Larry. Nevermind.

edit: OK, everyone send me your order number. I'll put them in order and let everyone know. I promise I won't call and swap the shipping address. (just in case, I'm kidding, please don't send me your order number)

FYI, FWIW . . . Good Guys is taking pre-orders and offering 10% off ($100) on orders placed by the end of the weekend. Their computer says the wharehouse will be receiving 1,000 HD DVR250's on 3/15/04 (this obviously conflicts with the 3/26/04 shipping date we've all heard about). ALSO, GG requires a 50% deposit!

I placed my order and am onboard with ValueElectronics

Do you get the feeling someone just put a random number in for the ship date and number that will be available?

I just called ValueElectronics and Robert said that his actual pre-orders taken is right around 100 units at this point. Also, he just updated the web site so it offers the faster shipping options. 2-day is $40 extra (so $55 total shipping), I think overnight was $75 extra. It's a lot because the box is 20 pounds. But hey, the $100 discount paid for it, not me.

OK, I really kind of expected more than that in the first day. In fact, I kind of expected him to fill the pre-order quota in the first day. I guess that means not everyone is as excited about it as I am. I'm not quite excited enough to change the shipping from UPS to something else, but still...

The good news is I'm in the top 100!!! I haven't been in the top 100 of basically anything since high school (and that's only because I graduated in a class of 72).

I got my pre-order in with VE...makes me feel all warm and fuzzy knowing that I'm all set.

Now all I have to fo is get Directv. I wont be getting the new service set up through VE however because as a new customer you can get the HD dish plus 3 standard receiver free and get the installation free as well from best buy. Think I will go with that and ebay the extra receiver when the HD tivo comes...

I remember when the DirecTivo DSR6000 first came out in 2000, GG had an exclusive agreement (for B&M stores at least) for about a month. That was a fiasco.

UMF is happy hour talk for unseen mystical force, aka the urge to buy something.

I believe it's the urge to buy something based entirely upon seeing people here talk about it or buy it themselves.

In the Macintosh world we call that the Jobs Reality Distortion Field. I've lost count of how many Mac things I've bought right after a MacWorld Keynote.

Or the urge to buy based entirely upon having people here PM you incessantly about it, eh Doug?
