Sorry to let you in on this, but OTA is a great place, if not the best, for sports. Many people can't get waivers for the feeds on DirecTV if they are even available.

Hi, I finally went down to Ultimate Electronics and did the pre order and they said it should be in around April 18 and I hope a little sooner since I sold my Dish Network HD receiver and switched to DirecTV I have been missing the HD locals.

just spoke to the tweeters guy and he said they have 85 on order for my area(he said scheduled for april 15, but that it was subject to delays) and that currently 30 people had pre-ordered.

I asked if I had to put a deposit down and he said that the people who put 100% down would be the first in line so I guess it depends how much you put down?

He also said they have a 30 day return policy...I'm assuming that would be after I take delivery and not when I put down a deposit.

Only thing I'm concerned about is if it turns out they didn't get any allocation or wouldn't until may/june/july and I could get it somewhere else sooner...don't know if they have a deal like value electronics where I can undo my pre-order and get my deposit back.

I'd like to pick it up from a local dealer with a return policy so that if it's just too buggy or I not quite what I had hoped that I can return it easily.

Tweater Pre order

I called my local Tweeter today and they said they were getting 170 on April 15. I am number 37 on that list. You do have to put money down to hold a unit. They actually have it in the computer to take orders not just an in-store list.

So if the first 200 ship "the week of March 22nd" that may mean that 40 or so ship each day of the first week I have the #4 preorder from GoodGuys in California. If they get any in the first couple of days - it's getting close!

When I pre-ordered from Tweeter, they initially said mid-April as well. The latest update the sales guy thought they'd be getting them March 29th, but I guess we'll see.

This is starting to look like DirecTV CSR roulette.

Not happy with the date you were told they're coming? Call back and ask again until you are.

Since Circuit City went to hourly rate sales people and did away with commissioned sales in the stores.... Reliable sales advice has vanished along with the commissions. Wal Mart and Target seems to have better experts..

Ultimate Electronics seems to be getting all the knowledgeable commissioned sales people in my area.

When I checked on Friday, I was number 129 nationally on the Good Guys waiting list. I was first to preorder at our local store. I was told to expect a unit in mid-April.

I preordered mine from Tweeter. They told me that they were getting 85 too, but it comes through Houston. I think they may be doing 85 for the entire state of Texas. I put down 50%, but they didn't tell me that 100%ers get first pick. Hmm...

Last time I checked it was the 15th April date that has been mentioned by quite a few folks.

We'll see

Robert said they were "shipping" the limited first production of 200 "the week of March 22". They might ship 40 or so a day or wait till they have the whole 200, we have no other info to go on.

My first post...i've been lurking around for some time...very nice board w/ tons of info. Proud to be a member (now all I need an avatar photo with a nipple in it )

For our Dallas & Texas area members,

Just pre-ordered from Tweeter near Central and Northwest and I was #25. I too got April 15 as the date they units would arrive at the warehouse. The units should be in stores the next day.

I too asked if I paid for the unit in full would that bump me up and was also told that it would not.

Even if the date is B.S. I figured I'd have better luck getting a unit quicker from Tweeter than VE since I'm so late to the dance.

Anybody know where the Texas area warehouse is?

Value Electronics is receiving and shipping 200 units from California on Wednesday March 30th. I assume if he's getting 200 on that day that Good Guys and others that had preordered early will also get an allotment on that day.

I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping you are right. I pre-ordered from Good Guys 1/29/04 and was the 68th person to order. I checked with them last Friday and was told they would get the first shipment 4/10/04, but I prefer your date of the 30th.

I assume that the first shipment would be based on the early pre-orders. VE wasn't the only one doing pre-orders. For those of us who preordered from Good Guys it's a question of how many they get on the first shipment and does it to the individual stores directly or through a central warehouse?
