Exactly the same. Looks like we will not get it until after the long weekend (for NSW people)...

I got that same message when I ordered my iPhone 4. Still got my phone the next day. I wouldn't worry about it.

Yep same message here as well. I say we nick a Navy ship and reclaim our packages.

I am curious as to what "recovery action" means.

EDIT: Surprisingly, my tracking log is exactly the same (except the tracking number) to yours paulharrop.

There's a thread about this over on Whirlpool. At least one person got theirs today but there was none of the Recovery stuff mentioned in their tracking history.

The Apple store at Chadstone SC has Apple TV on the shelf as of tis morning.

There looks to be about 20 on the shelf, not sure how many more out the back.

The box does tend to get lost on the shelf when it is placed next to all the keyboards, airports etc.

Thanks for the tip off. Just bought one and cancelled my online order... I'm not waiting for a couple of weeks. The sales girl said they had quite a lot and should last a couple of days. (or until word got out!)

Mine arrived this morning...

There is not much to play with really, it's just a functional little gizmo.

Does what it says it will do, perfectly (so far), but really nothing new/unfamiliar really....

Entering all the details with the remote was a test of patience though...

I missed my delivery, now I have to drive all the way out to the Brisbane Airport tomorrow to pick it up :( And I'll probably have to do the same thing again before the end of the week.
