I ordered my PGXL in July of 2017 with a $1000 deposit and still no idea when it will arrive.
So how do you guys get yours? I've called but just get a delivery guess.

Excellent, congrats!  Are they shipping the 8x2 Version 2 Switch?

Yes, I also got the Antenna Genius Switch.
However I can't get either to work. And have started a ticket.
The problem I believe is with the IQ Router assigning ip addresses.  I don't know how to change the ip's of the PGXL or AG.

Have you downloaded PGXL Utility and configured it?

Yes    The utility doen't connect, but the "operating app" as I call it does and the amp is working ok now.

However I am having the same issue with the Antenna Genius....the app doesn't connect.

Tnx, Jim

The PC IP address must be on the same segment as the amp. So if the PC is 192.168.1.?? then the amp needs to be on that segment. Do you have a DHCP server on your network? Such as a router? Or are you bridging the network through the PC Wireless connection? Hope this helps.

To the group-I ordered mine after Dayton in May, 2017.  MANY TIMES a thought about buying another amp and grew frustrated about the long wait.  I hung in there.  GLAD I DID.  With little exception this is as good as advertised.  To those waiting, don't give up the wait was worth it.  It's a beast!!

Ordered mine in August 2017.
No sign of the amp , mails to Flex sales remain unanswered...
I wonder why they put me on "hold"....??

Danny, you’ve posted before that you ordered early on and never received a response to your queries.  I understand your frustration.  As a last resort, maybe you should open a ticket to get your PG XL order status. 

I think you’ll be quite happy with your XL when it arrives, as I was with mine!

My PG-XL showed up today and thankfully UPS was very kind, as there wasn't even a ding or dent in the box.  Thank you UPS!  I did have a minor issue getting the Amp working but all it turned out to be was I had to replace the last memorized transceiver serial number with my 6700's serial number (in the PG XL Config window), and the Amp was up and running.  So far I've only tested into a dummy load but it's working beautifully.  Much praise to 403A and Flex!  Well worth the wait.

Mine arrived yesterday as well.  I was surprised to see the "other" serial number in the config utility as well, but guessed it was left over from the final QC.  Everything worked fine in my initial tests - thank you Flex.

Good guess!  My first thought was the "other" serial number was the serial number of the Amplifier and this number self populated that particular box during start-up, but no.  It would have been nice if there were a couple of words about this in the Quick Start Guide, (and the Install Power Genius Software from CD was removed), but thankfully this just caused minor delays, no biggie.

The serial number that the Amp shows up with is probably the radio used in testing, burn in and quality control before flex ships the amps

Quite a few of us ran into this.   It’s a minor issue in the scheme of things but if it wasn’t for this little irritant my setup would have been super-fast and flawless.  Yes, it would be nice if Flex could delete the QA serial # before shipping the amp or add a few words in the documentation.

Looking at these delivery times...I guess I ́ll wait for a second hand if it happens.

4o3A and Flex are working hard to fill the PG-XL backlog.  I suspect delivery delays will be getting shorter.
