    I\'m also about to kill someone

    [rant mode on] ok lets start at the beginning last saturday my home stereo went out and thats what i used to provide sound for the tv /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif ok so i step up and buy a pioneer 5 dvd disk 500w 6 speaker surround sound receiver. sounds awesome /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif but it was a demo normally sold for $489 i got it for $330 but it had no remote /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif but they said they would order a replacement for free /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif and said it would take about 5-10 days to receive it. so i take it home get it all setup again sounds awesome but i cant access most of the functions without the remote /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif i can only play a dvd or cd but cant chose any of the extra functions of a dvd like the behind the scenes or dvd extras without the remote /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif so i call up monday and tell them ill pay the shipping if they would ship it overnight so they charge me $18 to ship it overnight. so tuesday comes and no remote i call them up and they say it shipped out tuesday and ill have it wednesday /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif so wednesday comes around and still no remote /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif so i call them again and they say it shipped out wednesday morning and they messed up and it was shipped second day air and i would get it friday but refunded my money so they say /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif ok friday comes and yup you guessed it no fawking remote /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif so i call them again and they still say it was shipped out wednesday so i ask for the tracking number and while I'm on the phone with them i type it into ups website and it says the order was canceled WTF!!!!!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif so now I'm getting extremely pissed /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif and i ask about why it was canceled so she put's me on hold and calls the shipping department and they say that it says that because they refunded my money but ill still get the remote /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif ok so i get off the phone with them and call ups and talk to them and they say they never took possession of the shipped item /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif so i call them up again and tell them what i found out and they confirm it with the shipping department and keep apologizing to me while I'm chewing them out. so they say they are going to special ship it overnight and special delivery and i will have it guaranteed on saturday /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif i say ok but if i don't have it by saturday night i will return it and go to best buy /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif but i don't want to take it back it sounds the best out of all the ones under $500 that i went and looked at. i just want my fawking remote /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif is that to much to ask?????????????????

    Pioneer unit? you might be able to find a compatible remote in eBay.... I know a rather craptacular answer to a broken problem, but one that might fill in the blanks for now. besides, who couldn't use 2 remotes? afterall, remotes are almost always missing... this way, it'll take twice as much to lose both of them.

    Glad you got it. I still need to get a remote for my Denon AVR-681. Local stereo store wants $80.00 for one, so I haven't been in a big hurry to order it.

    If you think your BS was bad, you should have ordered a set of 15x10 US Wheels in 8 lug pattern. They said I'd have them in 4 days and it took over a month for me to get them. I was pissed...I had to drive my truck on some crappy ghetto tires for a month with a 4" lift.

    Grrrrrrr...

    why dont you cry about it man....
    im just kidding.
    i bout a 46 inch wide screen TV at x-mas. supposed to get a free surround sound and DVD player with it by rebait. its not here yet. but i also got free rentals. and they are taking thier time with those. so they sent me a smaller 6 rental cars vice a 36 rental card. once they get the other 36 rental cards in i get one of those as well.

    what i am saying is you will get a good deal in the end.
