    She's 13, apparently was scared, and you are pissed off because you will have to wait to get your tivo...it looks like you have a bunch of DVRs anyways. You need to relax.

    I believe that UPS requires an adult to sign for a "signature required" package.

    It will not say it. If TCS didn't request sig required or shipper release, then it is left at the driver discretion.


    Adult Sig Required = over 21yo
    Sig Required = anyone that is there

    Call UPS, have them deliver it to where you work. I did that, no problem.

    How do you know she was scared? If she is like my 14 and 15 year olds, she was just too busy watching TV, IM'ing her friends, or talking on her cell phone to be bothered to answer the door.

    I'd be pissed too. Rmassey, I'm with you. I can't believe all these people jumping on your back for being miffed at your lazy teen who didn't fulfill a simple request to sign for a package, without knowing anything about the situation.

    For heavens sake... 100 years ago, at 13 she'd be married and having kids. Now people are jumping on your back for expecting her to sign for a package. No wonder people can't get their kids to ever move out of their houses these days.

    He said she "hid". I was getting up on him because of how upset he was acting. Saying he was going to ground her..etc... For cripes sake he's got a bunch of DVRs looking at his sig. He could have it rerouted, he could pick it up later, etc... Big f'n deal it's just a freakin DVR. I think there are other things in life to be more concerned about.

    Apologies then.. to an extent... I didn't catch the "hid" in the original. My bad!

    For the record.. i'd still be pissed... I'm like a kid at Christmas when anything technology related is scheduled to be delivered to my door.

    People have different passions in life.. some people are crazy about cars, some about sports, and some, like me, are crazy about anything technology related.

    Hell, I bought a S3 the first day I could, and just ordered another one. It's coming on Monday and it is driving me freaking crazy that I have to fly out of town on a 2 week business trip on Sunday and won't get to set it up until I get back.

    Okay, back on track...is everybody ordering an S3 from the TiVo Community Store getting them by UPS, and did you get tracking numbers? I ordered one along with an extended warranty, and I got a message saying something was being shipped by DHL, but all I got was the extended warranty, and the only tracking number I got is now marked "delivered".

    I had the same thing happen. They shipped the warranty via DHL and the S3 via UPS I had to contact TCS to get the tracking number for the S3.

    Question regarding the extended warranty. I have a lifetime sub, so would an extended warranty be worth purchasing? The reason I ask is because if the hardware is a lemon and I get a replacement DVR, will TiVo transfer the lifetime sub to this new DVR for free. It would be reasonable for them to do this, but I'm just not sure they do. Furthermore, I read that hard drives are what breaks down the most in TiVos. Purchasing a new hard drive these days are inexpensive and is comparable to the price of an extended warranty. Also, hard drives have the manufacturer's warranty. Three years ago, my 2.5 year old hard drive in my computer died on me. I called Seagate and since the drive was still within the warranty period they sent me a replacement hard drive for free. Obviously, other things can break down, but is the extended warranty worth it if you have a lifetime sub?

    Has anyone noticed that if you buy from Amazon.com now they say ships from and sold by Electronica Direct. The fact your buying from Amazon.com should still be OK for the rebate, right?

    You aren't really buying from Amazon at that point. It seems they do that after they (Amazon) are out of stock of the item.

    That's relatively recent. Just a couple of days ago they were "Sold by: Amazon.com".

    You can still order from Amazon but their price is $606. If another vendor offers the item at a lower price, Amazon lists them first.

    SO to get the $200 rebate do you have to sign up for a 1 year commitment or can you sign up for 3 years? If I get a fourth box I will get a 3 year contract like my other boxes, but if it can only be one year, that's too expensive, even with the $200 back.

    Yes, and Amazon is also out of stock. I ordered from them yesterday and my scheduled ship date is between July 12-August 1. I doubt it will take that long, but that's what is says.

    Doesn't work for me either, Goob. So much for "prequalification". Next stop, snail mail.
