    They have got to be mailing them faster than that. At that rate it will take 5 years to replace all 18 Million cards.

    What I read on several "unofficial" sources was that mailings would begin around March 29th on a limited basis to work out any logistics kinks first, with the full-ramp mailings to start on or around April 15.

    I just got my cards today, for my two DTiVos. For what it's worth, I'm in Pegasus country.

    haven't seen anything here yet. Channel 222 will show up on the recievers when your card is about to arrive.

    Nothing here either. I'm not in a hurry. My Sony SAT-60 Tivo has the card in the back and its a bitch to pull out of my entertainment system. The Hughes units will be easier, but why the hell does Sony put the card on the back?

    Ch 222 came on on Friday. I received my 2 cards on Saturday. It took a total of 5 minutes to replace both cards. Once I changed the cards Ch 222 went blank again.:)

    Cards arrived Saturday (was at the beach) but did not find the mailer until Sunday Afternoon. Changed them out Tuesday. 2 units done in under 5 minutes. 1 H (3rd gen RCA) and 1 HU (DirecTiVo) replaced.
