    Took 2 hours to get mine this morning. But it crashes when I start it, so I'll add that to the timer until I get it working.

    Got my first one this morning, about 12 hours ago.

    Saw a message when ordering another one, It might take 24 hours.

    Did you use a different e-mail for the 2nd? It's limited to one key per e-mail address.

    39 hours and counting on the first request. 24 hours on the second request, still nothing.

    No, didn't know that.
    One copy is ok for me, don't use it much anyway. There are good alternatives.

    Its Windows Media Center which allows you to play DVD's and shows up as a Feature.

    Should be a Tile in Start Screen to use it.
