The latest is now November. What a shock.

You have got to be kidding me. There is absolutely no way that Universal Remotes would string all of us along like that again. I just refuse to believe that.

Who ever is making these decisions at Universal needs to have his head examined. Wait a minute, I changed my mind, I WANT HIS HEAD ON A PLATE!

Chipster, where did you get the info? What are they saying is the holdup now? A delay from their supplier in terms of shipping/import delays would not be a month plus. And they've told us that the product is DONE. So where's the delay?

Are we being led astray again?

This is the latest update from

"NEW UPDATE -Here we go again! Another slight delay. Now our distributor is being told that they will arrive at the end of October. We think this is the last delay. We will keep you posted! Thanks!"

I got the info from the above referenced site as well (where I have a pre-order). If the distributor won't get them till the end of October, we won't see them until November.

Even if they were available. They would have to fill their back orders. What would happen if we all ordered the remote---- 6-9 Years? What a joke. It has been over 1.5 years since the originally release. What a joke!!!
This is getting totally ridicules.

The sad part is that these are not delays, these are normal parts of the production process. As I pointed out at the time, in August they were still writing the manual. That meant that they still had at least 6 weeks of production time ahead of them, and more if they have overseas production.

This means that they have been consciously lying to us to get us to wait for their remote. This isn't incompetence, it's criminal.
