I received an sms with DHL reference number today in fact - it seems the parcel is handed from dxdelivery to DHL at Heathrow. Delivery is then within about 24-48 hours of receipt of the DHL reference.
Nearly at the end!

I tried to track using the HMPO reference but that didn’t work. What I read on the DX website was that we will only get a trackable reference directly from DX by text or if a delivery attempt is unsuccessful.
I’m hoping to get mine before the end of this week.

Congrats! And... Ditto! Mine marked having been sent on 28 Oct. Have your received any specific courier details? I only have what seems to be generic "sent" message and reference to dxdelivery which would not seem to apply outside of UK and ROI.
