I just spoke with someone over at Best Buy and questioned several items on the listing including the ETA and here is what I have learned:

1) There is an error on the site! Those who have selected Overnight will not see the items tomorrow but rather Monday or Tuesday! They claim to need 1 to 2 days to process the items prior to shipment which means items may not ship today but on Monday (and they do not Offer Saturday delivery). She did add that items ordered prior to 1:00 (EST) usually ship that day.

2) They claim to have stock on hand. The lady I spoke with said she does see stock in the wharehouse! She would not tell how many but said stated time and time again during our call that they do have them in the wharehouse.

3) BB will not charge your card until the item is actually entered in the UPS system and a tracking # is issued.



Cool! In regards to #3, that very well may be just an authorization, but that amount of available credit dropped off my card immediately.

I searched for HR10-250 on Froogle and found this:

http://www.solidsignal.com/prod_dis...?PROD=HD-DVR250

Click on the "Click here for updated HR10-250 release information"

and you get this:

Latest Information Regarding the HR10-250 HD Tivo DVR Release
Per our latest conversation with Hughes, they have announced a further delay in shipment of the HR10-250. Hughes predicts this unexpected delay to extend no further than May 1, 2004. While information from Hughes is sparse, we have been able to gather some pertinent information with regards to the initial shipment: (1) Production of the HR10-250 was not as steadfast as initially planned (2) Expected initial delivery quantities may not be met.
We will post any further creditable information from Hughes as it becomes available.

I just went to level 2

I asked to speak to a manager.
While we were on the phone their system says ZERO in stock.

My order at 11:35 now says Backordered rather than pre-order.

Could there really have been that many who jumped on board and
didn't say anything here. Oh well. I did 2 day delivery just in case but
they did say to call back later on today for an update. They will upgrade
from 2 day to overnight for $29.11.

They use UPS ...I thought they did not deliver on Saturday?

Anyone have a comment about this?
Thanks. I'm just too excited here.

I just talked to them again as well. I asked why my order shows "backordered" and she said it was because they are not able to process the delivery order yet. She said there is nothing to worry about. Yeah easy for her to say.

I wonder if the units that VE shipped the other day were just part of a much larger distribution. It would make sense that it would take a little longer for BB to get their system ready to handle it. Also, I doubt that a company like BB would put it on their site and start taking orders unless they expected to have product pretty soon.

Remember me?

Cant say I did not tell you so sooo I told you so.

The difference after talking to my brother again at Best Buy Corp is, the 4 week delay means it would be in Stores till Mid June and the next 10% off sale is not due till the 4th of July now.

The free item with in store rebate is still up to Direct TV as they are paying for the ad.

So the $999 offer on line seems like the best for now.

Where are you seeing the word "backordered"? My status is still showing as:


Status: 1 item(s) preordered, release date is 04/23/04.

They said they do a 3 tier verification process

1st is to do a authorization
2nd is to verify the CID #
3rd is to verify the account holder info

Once all 3 checks come back, they send it on shipment..

All resellers telling us they have hundreds on order...LOL

Funny thing. If you add up all of the resellers who tell us they have Tivo coming in, it would mean that Hughes made about 20,000 last week or something! Best Buy, Good Guys and others are all saying they have 1000 pieces coming in next week..LOL

I suspect it was part of a larger distribution. Robert did state in one message that he expedited his order in order to ship first but he never said that he was alone in the distribution!

I know I did the same thing years ago when I was selling USR 14.4 modems (when they were first released). I had my allocation Over-nighted to me from USR and that allowed me to have the modems on the street a few days earlier then everyone else..

Yeah, and he went to a distribution center (maybe just a shipping one), so that it didn't have to come all the way to VE. I guess it was real important to him to say he shipped first.
