HD DIRECTV DVR Stock Update (6/4/04 - 2:15PM EST)
We are taking orders now for this product. We received and shipped units today to many on our waitlist. We expect to receive units next week. Those with orders in our system will continue to be shipped in the same order that orders were placed. Those placing new orders, can expect delayed shipment as we ship earlier orders first.

Nice Rapid Satellite sold my info to a company that has been calling me over and over since Pegasus filed for chapter 11. They are claiming I will no longer be able to get Directv/Pegasus and I need to switch to Dish Network immediately.

My unit shipped yesterday and should be at my house Thursday. Cant wait. Never had to wait for something this long. I pre-ordered with Value in January but that never shipped and Rapid, I missed the cutoff of the first shipment by hours. I hope its worth the wait and expense.

Now if only DirecTV could increase its HD programming...........

When did you order with Rapid? I have an order sitting with them now. Anyway to see where I am in their queue?

About D* and their HD programming; ever consider getting an OTA? The OTA will deliver a pure unaltered HD signal...

I have an order with them as well. You can e-mail then to ask, but they can not (or will not) tell you where you are in line or when you might get an HDTivo. All they would tell me is "your order is still pending shipment" - no charges on my CC from them, however.

service@rapidsatellite.com

Let us know if you get any more info.

I ordered on May 1 and must have missed the orginal cutoff by hours if not minutes. The unit said shipped last week but actually shipped on Monday (from Georgia) with delivery to Connecticut today. Credit card charged on Friday I believe. So for those that get charged (Value E customers), their units better ship within 5 days. I have a dispute with a vendor that charged me and sat on my order for 9 weeks before I canceled.

Correction to my post, the order was for furniture not HD Tivo.

How "rapidly" has Rapid responded to emails? I've sent several requests
for information about my order over the past 2 weeks and have received
no response. And this is after they've charged me for the HD Tivo which
they haven't shipped yet.

I'm about the same as Wallyj. I'm May 31.

Dogen, I got an e-mail immediately after I ordered mine.

The tracking link on Rapid's site doesn't work for me. I get a complicated error page. I called them about it and they said that my order was in the system, so not to worry about it. I'm not worried, just impatient.

I ordered mine on May 6th. Still waiting for it. Still waiting for a response
to any of my emails. Tried calling a few times..busy signal. Are they
still in business? All on vacation? I'm getting worried since they were
quick to charge my card.

They updated their notice slightly:

Hmmm... if people who ordered theirs in May still haven't got anything, that's telling me I might ought to go to my local UE and order one, since they said I would for sure get one out of their next shipment.

I ordered June 6. I e-mailed them last Thursday to inquire about my place in line, and didn't even get a "sorry, we can't tell you" e-mail back yet.
