Robert, from Value Electronics, last week talked about requesting DIRECTV to allow them to ship the HR20 before Wednesday, 9/13.

Is there any work on whether VE will be able to begin shipping earlier in the week?

It's significant because shipping that begins on Wednesday means that most of us will not have the HR20 for NFL Week 2.

tommorow would be great! :) I just ordered today, and have a 5lnb install for thurssday, and with valueelectronics it usually takes two days to get to my house with their Delievery, by the way, if there is anyone reading this thread that is on edge about ordering from Robert, do it, he is a class act!

Actually, even if it isn't shipped until wednesday, there is a good chance a significant number of people will get them by friday. They are shipped from many different warehouses around the country, ups ground only will take 1 or 2 days to many of these places people ordered from.

The cities being shipped from are

Des Moines, IA * St Louis, MO * Denver, Co * Dallas, TX * Baton Rouge, LA * Indianapolis, IN * Pittsburgh, PA * Columbus,OH * Grand Rapids, MI * Evansville, IN * Knoxville, TN * Baltimore, MD * Orlando, FL * Manchester, NH * Syracuse, NY * Atlanta, GA * Los Angeles, CA * Tempe, AZ * Sacramento, CA * Seattle, WA * San Antonio, TX * Miami, FL * Raleigh, NC

Just got an EMail response from Robert at Value Electronics a few minutes ago:

We are shipping all orders tomorrow (9/12), one day early.

That's great news!

Thats great and seeing there is a shipping point in Columbus, I should have mine in Cleveland by Wednesday. Maybe I'll try and call D* and see if I can get an installer here sooner than the 19th to hook it up.

Great news, Robert! Will we expect to receive an e-mail with a confirmation or tracking number once it's shipped?

Yes, but sometimes I don't get tracking #s from all of the warehouses till the day after the order ships, whch is typically when you receive the order.

Beachaudio sent out an e-mail saying D* said there is a recall of HR20's and that no new boxes are to be shipped out. Robert, are you aware of anything like this???

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I bought one from BB today but since Robert is selling cheaper and my install date is not until the 23rd I ordered from him. I will just return the one I have to BB.

I have a HR10-250 that I got from Robert (one of the first ones shiped --oh the joys of following that tracking). Now, is the following plan a good one?:

1. Order the HR20 from Robert (I really like dealing with him)
2. When it arrives, call DTV and get the best deal I can --- new dish and credits to ofset the costs, etc.
3. Schedule the install of the dish.
4. Meanwhile (here is the part I am not sure of) hook the HR20 up to my old dish and get it up an running. Then when the installer arrives all they need to do is change out the dish and align it (not having to mess with any of my equipment). Then rerun setup again to set the box for the new dish and mpeg4.

Will that work?

2nd question --- Robert, do you still have units to ship?

Yes we still have about 65 HR20-700s left from our first allocation. I purchased all of my distributors inventory.
