Well, out of all of this crazy crap that beach audio pulled, I decided to order from VE at an insanely early time this morning (5:30 am eastern). I just got my shipping number!!

Thanks VE! You have gained a new customer and I am thoroughly impressed with your proffesionalism and quick turn around!:D

Just got this from BA.

It is with regret that we must cancel your current order for the DirecTV HR-20. Our supplier has informed us today that we will not be receiving this unit in the time frame we were originally promised. We want to apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Because we value your business and we strive for the best possible service, it is our pleasure to offer you a $20 credit on your next order from Beach Audio.

To receive your credit:
1) Please call us at 877-804-0495 to place your order
2) Inform the customer service representative of your previous order number and your email address
3) You will immediately be credited $20 or the entire amount of your order (whichever is less)

This offer is valid until 12/31/06. There is no minimum order. Limit one credit per customer.

Again, we appreciate your business and look forward to serving your electronics needs in the future.

Regards,
David Schloss

So if we didn't get a tracking #, that doesn't necessarily mean ours didn't ship today?

Correct. I spoke to Robert today and he stated that he often doesn't get tracking numbers from the warehouses till the day AFTER they ship. So yours may have shipped today, you'll know more tomorrow.

They have 12 warehouses around the country, as do most directv sellers and they usually ship from the closest one, so Im not sure why one would be shipping from NY to Cali. Mine is also coming from NY, will be here in a few days.

This is simply a guess on my part, but I would say that likely the warehouse near you ran out, while this other warehouse still had stock.

Like I said, just a guess. :)

Well, I would agree, except he made it sound like he had plenty left in the various warehouses.

Robert,

I just placed my order at 9:45pm on 9/12. I have an install date set for this Sat 9/16, is there any chance I would receive my order on Friday if I live in Maryland?

But, there must have been something closer to CA than NY? I was really hoping to have it before the weekend. I guess there's nothing I can do now. Still better than the BA fiasco I guess.
