    I had the same experience. I actually had to call three times, and each time they cancelled because they couldn't tell if it shipped or not.
    Then a day after my last call I received the first of what would become THREE deliveries of my Bills remote.
    I now have three, although I'm sure yet how many they billed me for, and when I try to track the oder on the web site it keeps telling me that my order tracking info is not available at this time.

    As everyone else has said, it looks better than the picture from the order page. The blue is really deep and the logo looks good...

    I certainly didn't need another remote and when it was announced these were coming out I wasn't planning on getting one. Of course I broke down and bought it and I'll only use it on gameday's so it'll be a novelty for a long time to come...

    Hey! I received my Dallas Cowboys remote today! They overnighted it after having to cancel and then me placing the order for a 3rd time. Anyways, I finally got one.

    My Giant's remotes got here today. Even as a long time suffering Jet fan, I have to say the Giant remotes look way better than the Jets do. Right down to D's logo at the bottom.

    I got my Bengals one last week. It arrived 2 days after the Chargers one I orderd for my son even though they were ordered at the same time. Of course after all these years I'm used to the Bengals finishiing behind everyone else :)

    DirecTV is now using channel 115 to advertise the NFL remotes.You can view all of the remotes on that channel.
    They are not selling them through the interactive channel.You still have to go through the DirecTV site to place any orders.

    I received my Indianapolis Colts remote after having just ordered it on Monday.

    Mine came complete with "fans". There were a bunch of baby ants in the box. It had been sitting on the front porch a while, guess they crawled inside the box then. Yuck :nono2: . :lol:

    :wave: Hi all,
    I haven't read the entire thread, so I don't know if this has been discussed yet, but are you aware there is NO warranty for these remotes?

    I was going to order one for hubby's birthday (& maybe one for myself, as our fav teams are different), when I read it comes w/o any warranty of any kind. I then called DTV & asked a rep if it didn't work when I put batteries in it the day it arrived would it be replaced. She said, "No". I'd be stuck with it & would just have to order another one.

    I really wanted to at least get hubby a Cowboys one, but I hate to chance throwing away $30.00. I know the chance may be slim, but it would be my luck that I'd receive that 1 in a million that was bad.

    Everyone have a good day. :)

    Can you show me where it says that? That obviously does not make sense and in fact would run afoul of laws in many states.

    Peachtree...

    Even though it says it comes without a warranty, I suspect if the remote arrived DOA that DirecTV would replace it. If it really became an issue, you could always call the credit card company and tell them what happened, under most circumstances, I suspect they will either get DirecTv to send you a new remote or give you back your money.

    I actually found where it says that myself :)

    "DIRECTV NFL Universal RF Remote + RF Antenna
    Offer available only to current residential customers who order online at DIRECTV.com
    Offer void in Alaska and Hawaii and where prohibited or restricted.
    May not be combined with any other offer.
    Offer and equipment are non-transferable and may not be resold.
    Supplies are limited, and product sold without warranty of any kind."

    I'll agree that does give me pause -- though my Cowboys remote arrived and worked perfectly :)

    Hi.

    It's on their web site when you go to check out. That's where I first saw it.

    It's also in small print at the bottom of the TV screen in their promo on Channel 115.

    Also, this is the reply they sent me when I sent them an email yesterday stating that I could not believe they would sell something w/o any warranty. (I put X's in places that are personal info.)

    "Response (Rachel XXX ID XXX - 08/21/2008 06:24 AM
    Dear Ms. XXX,

    Thanks for writing. I'll be happy to address your concern. At this time, DIRECTV is offering remote controls with your favorite NFL team logo on them. Please know that these remotes are $30.00 and can be ordered at directv.com. If the remote control needs to be replaced, you will need to order a new remote control. These items are a special edition, so if you require a special edition remote control it will be replaced with a standard remote. Please know that there is not a warranty on these remotes, and they're not covered by the PROTECTION PLAN.

    Thanks again for writing.

    Sincerely,

    Rachel XXX ID XXX
    DIRECTV Customer Service"
