how did you come to the conclusion, you always get latest version when you buy a new HD system.

twenty years of buying ProTools hardware entitle you to the latest version - NO MORE.

A truly bizarre thread. You'll get PT10 with HDX, and you should get a free crossgrade to 10 if you got an HD2 system with 9. That's what the amnesty program is for.

Yep dealer told me to register it ( Which I did) the amnesty email was supposed to be automatic. Just like the system we bought last week got a PT 10 amnesty u/g email.
I called Avid NO MORE HD 10 AMNESTY UPGRADES AFTER OCT 23!!!

If your Sweetwater rep said you get it, then they should make it happen, even if Avid won't.

These upgrades are automated. It could be that you're in limbo somewhere because since HDX was announced, it could be that in Avid's system the TDM systems are discontinued, so it's not doing the automatic upgrade.
