as for the rebate, it still shows as processing after about 8 weeks. should i be worried? believe me i am. i didnt send the email from buy.com stating no packing slip is ok, but rather a note on the bottom of the form stating such. for $50 i will definitely follow thru with it.
as for problems, i am still having a lot of problems with it, but have discovered almost all of them are related to the guide. ie, i usually try to scroll thru the guide quickly, you know searching the listings and then going to the sort menu; hitting 3 to record a program and quickly going to another program and hitting 3 again, however, i have learned i need to slow down and let it finish something or else the whole thing freezes and then needs to be unplugged, etc, sometimes randomly losing all guide info.
I received my DRC7005N from Buy.com today. The original packing slip was enclosed.
I must say, as a customer (for years) of Buy.com I can speak for their
integrity. I have had NO problems with them, and this includes incidences that I would not have honored had I been them.
I doubt this is a plot by Buy.com to scam us out of $40. I suspect it is an error that will be rectified by them.
Unless they were recently bought out by the mob I would pursue any problems through their normal process.
I am impressed with the unit so far. guide is ugly, but FREE. Basic pvr capabilities ( record one while watching another recording). Not a TIVO, but for $193 ...... what a deal!!! (until Comcast releases the HD PVR in my area).
(In the meantime I am happily recording HD via my OTA Samsung and JVC39K).
It's worth $193 to rid my life of ALL VCR devices for std def recording.
Heck, I paid more than this to get a DVD player with a DVI connection. I paid more then this to get a DVI switcher (Gefen). I paid more than this for ....... ad infinitum
