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

I talked to them Saturday, I think, and although very nice on the phone, they were evasive about my place on the list or when I might get mine shipped. I ordered on 2/4. The best they could do was tell me "the end of April or beginning of May."

AFAIK, Robert is still expecting to delivery all orders made before 3/18 by the first week in May as originally promised. At least, I never saw him post to the contrary. But that's dependent on those 'weekly and biweekly allocations' we were talking about a day or so ago, of course!

I think that's all still on schedule or only a few days late.

I am having mine shipped to my office, and I called up VE to confirm the shipping address and they told me there was no need to do so.

Why do you think you need to confirm this? Do I need to speak with someone else at VE?

I ordered a couple of days before you and have been thinking I'm about 450 too. However, after parsing the pre-order list very unscientifically, I'm afraid we are more like 600, which is end of April at least, which is what VE told me a couple of days ago. I'm already hyperventilating, so I don't think I can make it that far.

DSwallow,

This is a copy/paste from the email I received when I placed my order.

Time of Order: 2/4/2004 3:13:57 AM
Order Type: Email
Order ID: 13278

I don't know where that other order number came from!??!

I only said that because I don't think Wendy realized there was a different shipping address at first. They probably have it right for most people... I had an issue because I had changed the order later to add a 2nd regular TiVo.

FYI:This forum is for discussion of HDTiVos and related topics only. If you want to discuss the off topic subjects that got the other thread closed there is an entire forum dedicated to discussing those topics called the Happy Hour.

Kepp it on topic and I promise this thread will remain open.

The Mod is here, the Mod is here!

Anyway, my guess on the production allocation is this. This week, everything goes to VE. Next week, most goes to VE with some going to others. The week after that, none goes to VE and all goes to others. The week after that, VE gets some and others as well. And this will continue on.

Just my guess.

Hong.

Dan did you kick Doug off the site? He has been absent since you closed the thread?

Robert said he would get weekly and maybe even bi-weekly shipments through May.

Hm, not quite (as I remember) what Robert reported, but perhaps we and he won't know until the trucks show up next week and after! I don't care so much (sacrilege!) if I get mine before May 7th, but it will be interesting to see if he can keep his original 'conservative' promise to deliver all pre-3/18 orders by the [end of?] 'the first week in May'.

Edit: Darn, do we all think alike now after weeks on the other thread?!

With certain credit cards (American Express, for instance), it can be difficult to get authorization if the shipping address is not the same as the billing address. Amex actually retains a list of addresses that you ship to, so if you've used the address in the past, you shouldn't have a problem.

Is there any truth to the rumor that Robert was seen leaving a Swiss bank today with a money order in one hand and a plane ticket to a small island in the south Pacific in the other?

Woo! Trace the IP address, quick!
In *any* case, those who look at the top of HD TiVo forum see Dan's Mod ID clearly there. (I wonder if some of the troublemakers are (again?) creating new IDs? This is really getting old.)

Yah...let me wait till the day before the HD Tivo will ship and then I'll close the preorder thread. That wouldn't cause any confusion now ...would it?

What I said was based on the "bi-weekly" starting at the end of the month comment from Robert.
