could have done WITHOUT all the yellow print. That's as bad as blue on black, or black on blue.

FWIW, I order one on April 20th from Solid Signal and their vendor said it would be about 2 weeks before delivery. Well as of today June17th they tell me that the vendor has no word from Directv if and when they will again be able to get the AIM Meters. I cancelled the order today after waiting some 58 days. I think that Directv has no intention of selling the equipment through any retailer.

If you can get your hands on one, it is well worth it. Still getting the feel for it, but it is awesome. :)

Trying to troubleshoot without an AIM meter now feels like trying to dither a KaKu without a meter.

ordered mine on 4/12/11 still no joy! D is haveing trouble getting them to Solid Signal. Can't wait to get it. This is like waiting on my first special order HD (Harley Davidson) seems like it took forever for that as well.
