So, has anyone actually talked to anyone at Beach Audio to confirm when they are shipping? My guess is that the phone line will be flooded starting at 9:00 AM PT. Please post here if you call them and they confirm when they are shipping.

Thanks!

Order status changed from received to processing this am. Haven't called, but curious if anyone has and has further info regarding shipment dates.

I hope they are shipping this week as I'd love to save some money by not having to pay full price at Best Buy. However, if they aren't shipping until 9/13....I'll just buy at Best Buy. There's no way I'd give Value Electronics one penny from my wallet...I'd rather pay an extra $100.

The HR20 better do my laundry and make my lunch if I were to pay over $100 extra to get it a few days early. You people need to learn patience, geez :rolleyes:

They stated they are shipping today. I quickly jumped on the Best Buy BS email, and ordered one for 399. After I submitted payment, got an email stating HR20 was on backorder. Called BB to cancel, was then told that order should ship out on Tuesday. (TODAY). Today, I check my status on BB website, and now says delivery expected for 9/13 to 9/14. That is NOT good. I am expected to pay an extra $175 and get it AFTER every one else...No thank you. I promptly returned the HR 20 that I "bought" at BB. I hope Beach Audio comes through on shipping today, but if they don't, and I get it next week, I still saved $175! What a friggin scam that email was!!! I feel used by D* & BB.

Good move. Anyone else still believe in Best Buy's "exclusive"?

I also pulled the trigger on Beach Audio. (Ordered early am saturday). So I'm hopeful also, but I have a little time to wait in case it doesn't go out asap. Quickest installation date I could get from DirectTV for the dish is 9/20.

I'm sure BeachAudio will believe it if D* issues penalties on them for shipping early.

Does D* charge anything for the dish install? I need to get this done as well once I pickup a HR20.

Time will tell, but I don't think that getting your HR20 on the 13/14th from Best Buy constitutes an "exclusive". I have yet to see one post that anyone has received one from Best Buy yet.

I'm sure BeachAudio will believe it if D* issues penalties on them for shipping early.

I honestly do not think any dealer other than possibly BB will be shipping before 9/11 or 9/12.

Beach Audio is not shipping until the 13th. How much you want to bet that Robert from VE either (A) called Beach Audio to give them a friendly heads up that they probably shouldn't start shipping until the 13th, or (B) called DirecTV distribution and ratted out Beach Audio? LOL

Oh well, now I'll just wait for BB or even until I can order directly from D*.

I was told the Dish and Multiswitch would be free. In exchange for it being free, I am signing up for a 2 year committment for that to happen.

IF they can provide a service BB/D* can't, then bring it. Otherwise customers suffer, but service hasn't been their best suit lately I guess. We'll see.

Ok enough of the personal attacks here. This is not what this forum is for and it will not be tolerated. Please keep the topic on track and keep your negative feelings contained to PM. Thank you.

I will be P!ssed if this is the case and not stated earlier by BeachAudio. Well even if it is true, it is still cheaper than Robert could sell, so I am still up in that regard:) If it is the case, I hope everyone orders from Beachaudio anyway just in spite, I have held grudges for less haha

Most likely isn't the case as the user who stated it holds a personal grudge against VE. DirecTV visits these forums quite often and with all the talk of people shipping before they are supposed to. Well I'm sure you can figure out what most likely is the deal.

Well sorry he holds a grudge towards him, not right for him to assume I guess. All of us want the best deal, I have lurked here for awhile and it is good to have a guy like Robert on here to help answer many questions from the retail end.

Hey, if the Beachaudio deal falls through- I will turn to Robert for my next order :)

Placed my order with Beach on Saturday. I called just now and was told they won't ship until 13th b/c of D* restriction. Oh well...
