This off their site. I have a 2nd one on order so I am hoping that I can get it in a week or so. My first unit works beautifully BTW. May be a good time to place your order.

I wonder how many pre-orders they have. I have also been waiting for Best Buy/Circuit City so I jumped on.

Question for you guys that just ordered from Rapid Satellite: I decided to do the same thing (can never have too many pre-orders, right? ) -- ordered it late last night -- this morning I see that the "available credit" on my card has decreased by the amount of the order. Normally this only happens if the card has been CHARGED -- at least, that's the only way I've seen it happen in the past.

Anybody else have this experience? It would truly be amazing if they're actually preparing to send one to me, considering I'm at the end of the line. My "order status" says "pending shipment," but I don't know what that means ...

I just talked to Rapid....they told me that I could order one, but they couldn't guarantee when I would get it. They told me that they are getting shipments in multiple times a week and getting them out just as fast. They told me that if I ordered one, they WOULD NOT charge my card until it shipped.

Interesting. Well, I will keep an eye on my card over the next few days and see if the charge actually appears (as opposed to just reducing my available credit). Their web site does indeed state that they will NOT charge your card until the unit ships, so I will definitely be giving them a jingle if the reverse turns out to be true.

I just put in an order, and used my Visa Check card....and I do see that the available balance went down the amount of purchase. I am sure that it is just an authorization at this point....and it will become available again if they don't process in 3 days.

That's got to be what's happening -- I guess we'll find out soon enough.

On a somewhat related manner, did you receive a confirmation email that contained this information:

Your receiver and/or system will arrive prior to the installation. You must NOT open the box. It is only to be opened by our certified installer.

I did not see anything about *installation* being included with the unit, and in fact, I don't need or want it. I will assume (for now) that this is just some boiler-plate text that goes out with every order.

I ordered my HD-Tivo from Rapid on 5-7, and it's still "pending shipment". Credit card has not been charged yet.
