Got mine 2 weeks ago. THe 811's are in tight supply, i was waiting a while too. It depends on when there are units in stock in your area.


BTW- i dont think charlie can give you an answer. lol he's the CEO of a 15,000 employee company- dont think he's sitting at a desk answering customer service calls- more like negotiations with Viacom are filling his days among the other things needed to run a major company.

Mine was installed on January 10th after a one month wait (and on the 5th reschedule). But it was worth the wait. My guests were blown away during the Super Bowl.

Dudes,


I would check with your local installers. I called dish the first week of january and they couldn't even take my order. a week after, i saw a local installer at the LA auto show and he had tons of 811 in stock. he wanted to book the unit like next day!. I ended up getting the unit installed around jan 15th.


Good luck!

Darthkim is right - I called the 1-800-dish number a couple of months ago to set up a 811 install. My install date got pushed back a couple of times because the installer they were using didn't have and 811's. Then I found out a different local installer had a pallet full of them - so I called up Dish - canceled my order and got the 811 locally.


Call all of the Dish installers in the phonebook - someone probably has a few in stock because not all installers go thru the national 1-800 number.

I got mine in 6 days from Sears.. but then again I did have to pay full price for it and do the install myself using an old DirecTV dish BUT I also don't have a contract to fulfill in case something else better comes along..


I don't have the patience to wait a month or more on something I want NOW. :D


Best of luck to those on the waiting list..

Rick

I was fortunate, emailed them on friday. A corporate person emailed me back telling me they had some in my area"PA" so I told her I wanted one and she said fine. However then I told her that I had moved to FL and if it would be possible for them to mail me the receiver. To my surprize she said fine and the receiver was shiped the following day.


I hope they take care of you guys, I would be upset too if I had to weit that long for it.
