I have been trying to order the NFL remote for the last few days 3+ days and keep getting the same error message:
"Sorry, we're having trouble creating your order. Please try again later or call 1-800-DIRECTV to place your order."

I have successfully ordered with the same card in the past but can't get the checkout to work. I have called directv 10 times and they give me the same generic answers: System maintinence, try again in a couple hours. I asked them to talk with the maintinence manager but they act like that is impossible. I have called my credit card company and my card isnt even being authorized. There is something on their end blocking the transaction. I have tried many different computers etc. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Ummm, why don't you just order one over the phone? Especially since you called them anyway. A friend of mine did just that when he ordered Sunday Ticket in August. He asked about an NFL remote and they ordered it up for him.

You should still be able to change the shipping address when ordering via phone.

BTW, :welcome_s to DBSTalk!

I ordered two tonight for gifts. Lady on the phone said I had to order online, but said they usually only take a week. After ordering, I noticed the fine print on the site that said may take 4-6 weeks. Hmmm... anyone know how long it should take?

It is what it is, but I'd sure be happy if they came at least by Monday of next week.

I have ordered quite a few in the past. The ones I ordered last year took a day. I orderd 4 of them last week and it took 2 days.

Just as a note...

The NFL remote I bought over a year ago has been as solid a unit as I've owned to date. The remote not only looks nice, but has a good feel to it, and operates fast and reliably.

I ordered a steelers remote on the 30th of November and got it December 2nd. One directv remote said out of stock for steelers remote but when I logged into my account and went to purchase remotes I selected NFL remotes and steelers was indeed in stock.

I found the same exact thing. Got my nephews Stealers, and Cowboys remotes. Both listed as sold out. Logged on and they were both available.

You can. You just might need to find the right CSR. :)

Hey, now! My first favorite team, the one with Franco Harris, was honest—as far as NFL teams go, that is—so please don't call them thieves!
I've moved a few times, and adopted the local teams, so 25 years ago I was in 49er heaven. Games with the 'Boys were always hot, but man, have both teams been sucking wind for quite a while. Now I am in 49er hell. (rant over!)

The is the first I've heard of custom remotes, so thanks to all.
"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

I agree. My NFL Remotes are much more Solid Feeling and a little heavier than my regular remotes and it has a Backlight Button and works much better than my regular ones. Well worth the money.

Having been born and raised in NY, and being a Jet fan the Jet remote was my first. Then sticking with the NY theme I picked up a Giants remote. After a while I thought "what the hell " I'm living in Carolina now so I ought to have a Panthers remote as well.

It's about then that I lost my mind ! I have since picked up Eagles, Radiers, and Stealers, and am thinking of just collecting them all. In all I have bought over a dozen to give as gifts as well as keep for myself.
