I'm currently scheduled to have my 811 installed on Monday 1/19. My original date was 12/29, and was just wondering if E* had caught up to demand for the 811. In other words, how likely am i to finally having my receiver installed?
My 6th install is slated for the 17th - the guy already knows if its not in by this install, I'm cancelling it.. so tomorrow I expect to get the dreaded call at work, followed 10 minutes later by a confirmation that my order was cancelled, and then I wait for D* TivoHD.
Or.. I can post a new thread Saturday about my nice new 811 and how InsectiaHD looks - just not counting on it!
EDIT: Dish called and confirmed they physically have the 811 and are installing tomorrow morning! 811/301 plus all the installation goodies. Insectia here I come!!! Maybe it'll snow in New Orleans this year afterall :shock:
My 4th install appointment was scheduled for today. The key word there is was. I called last night to confirm and was told that I am now scheduled for Feb. 11.
Kudos to E*. I can't think of a better way to increase cash flow in these trying times for business. Offer a great promotion, charge the customer immediately and then don't deliver any product for over two months.
I am sooo pissed and feel like I have been scammed.
Well 3rd time the charm. My 3rd appointment was kept and I have an 811 installed. I wrote a review up on DBSTalk and I am happy overall with the unit. THere are some warts for sure, but with E* that is to be expected.
I am a new order in Easter Iowa. I placed my order a week or two before christmas and was scheduled for that Sunday. Got the call saying no 811's and that they'd call when they got one. Called E* and they said I was scheduled for the 18th and that since I was leaving the country on the 12th they'd try to install on the 15th? I told them that was no help and someone would be there between 12p and 5p on the 18th for the install. My wife called E* on the 17th to make sure everything was still on since we hadn't heard anything and they said "sorry, you are now scheduled for 2/22"?!?! First of all thanks for making me wait two months for a product they had no problem charging me for, secondly they don't tell people when they get rescheduled?!?! I'm wicked pissed at this whole thing and am considering a cancelation and going with our local cable company's, mediacom's, hd package and waiting for them to get ESPNHD added to their package. All I can say is ";alskdnf;asndv;qinhdwpogfnasdjkv;n" as I beat my keyboard in anger! Anyone in Iowa get their 811 yet?
