Weaknees & UPS tracking Question

Hello All,

Last Friday (8/23) I purchased a Roamio from Weaknees.com. They sent me the UPS tracking info.

On the UPS web site the Shipment Progress showed the unit being picked up on 8/23 and leaving Cerritos CA on the 8/24. After that there is no further information. The page has also shown a 8/30 delivery date since the first day. I normally see the Shipment Progress section being updated as what ever I have ordered moves through various UPS transfer sites.

What have other people seen, especially with an order from Weaknees.com?

Sometimes with the shipping carriers it won't update again until after it gets delivered or soon before. No idea why but I usually see this happen several times a year. But it is not the norm.

Thanks for the responses - guess I will just have to wait patiently until they deliver it.

I've noticed with UPS lately, the status doesn't update until the package hits one of their regional centers.

Trust me, once it hits a main hub, the shipping info will fully populate online.

Same with me from Weaknees. There was a gap from 8/22 to 8/26 when it traveled from LA to Memphis. Then it bugged me that it sat in Memphis for a day before moving on.

It is possible that when it's a ground shipment and going cross country, that it sits in the same same truck until it hits somewhere in the north east. I know from watching a show on the history channel or something for all/most air shipments go though their "UPS Worldport". Since air shipments are more time critical, they are probably scanned more. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worldport_(UPS_air_hub)

Sometimes that doesn't happen until it's been delivered. I've even had packages that never updated after it showed that the shipping info was received. The tracking never showed pickup or delivery even though I received the package.. And the explanation from ups was that sometimes that happens. Which never explained why it happens.

I still haven't even got a shipping notice for mine. I got an email yesterday saying it would be shipped today, but nothing yet.

With it coming from LA it's two days to me, so even if it does ship today I'm not going to get it until Monday.

Not to be a buzzkill, but it'll actually be Tuesday, as Monday is a holiday. I'm doing the same math, because I'm waiting for my Pro from them too, except I'm in MN, so it'll be 3-5 business days. If they ship today, I may not see it until next Friday. Echoing the little girl from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory "But I want it NOW!" Oh well, should have ordered sooner I guess! Just couldn't decide whether to go Plus or Pro.

Delivered 1:20 pm. No double boxing, TiVo box somewhat beat up and the accessories were rattling around in the box (batteries, power cord, remote). Oh well hope everything works ok.

No double boxing? I thought I read someone else saying theirs was. Why would some be and some not? I don't want my TiVo box sitting at the mailboxes in my condo with everyone to see what it is.
