Scott- How much you getting for your batteries, both the JVC and the Anton Bowers?

Also... do you have any packages below your Silver level? Maybe around the Aluminum or Copper range???

Hold your horses, some of us have been waiting months for the IDX promo to materialize. JVC's track record ain't so hot on these promos.

The included stock battery is joke by the way, I get 10-15 minutes of use out of it.

Anybody know if is this a worldwide promo? What about Europe? I've purchased a JVC GY-HD101, i wonder whether the promo works with that version or not.

Thanks.

It's not a JVC issue. It's an IDX issue. They are two separate companies. Fulfillment of the IDX battery promo is in the hands of IDX, not JVC.

Currently it is a U.S. promo.

JVC offers it, they're advertising and using it as incentive to purchase their product, they're therefore culpable in every legal and ethical sense.

Both companies are to blame, but I have a feeling JVC switched the Promo to Anton Bauer because of reliability issues with IDX.

Agreed. My intent wasn't to absolve IDX of culpability. Both companies, as you say, deserve the criticism.

What reliability? I have had my IDX system for over 3 years on SONY DSR500 and now on the HD100 without any problems. IDX service is also excellent.

Jiri, I don't think anyone questions the quality of the actual IDX batteries--it's on the fulfillment side vis a vis the JVC promo that has put a blackmark on JVC and IDX.

That is correct. I meant no criticism of the product, but the distibution of the free promos to JVC. It just seems that JVC received so much bad feedback about delays, that it may be the reason for the switch.

Why do you think JVC switced to AB for this promo? IDX should get a clue.

Unfortunately I'm stuck with the IDX promo - so far they work great but as a company, their employees are rude and very unknowledgable. I've tested this at NAB and on the phone - they know nothing. Trust me.

B&H say No!

I just got off the phone with B&H a minute ago since I'm considering purchasing 2 more HD100's and they say that they have no information about the AB power promo, they say they haven't even heard about it. Has anyone else had the same answer from them or are they just trying to get rid of old IDX packages?
