Yes, I'm a sucker and bought the official plugins (The Orrery, Thieves Den, Mehrune's Dagger and Wizard's Tower), downloaded them, installed them properly, checked them on the data file menu, and started up Oblivion. Now my PC specification is above recommended, and I'm only running the graphical texture mods that help with LOD distances etc and have tried without these aswell.
I log in, expecting half a dozen messages about these certain new quests, and only recieve one, for Bothiel at the Arcane University (for the Orrery). So I spend around 15 minutes and manage to complete that quest. I then, relog just hoping that I will recieve another quest for another of the expansions, but nothing. I then travel to Anvil and engage some of the locals for rumours (which I thought was the way to trigger the Thieves Den) and find nothing, just stuff about the bloody Floating Bowl or whatever. Now I find the Dunbarrow Cave from watching a video of it on gamespy.com and find myself killing legions of skeletons, however I must say, I had no quest for this. From what I can see, the expansion is in working order apart from recieving the actual quest.
I then travel to the Jerall mountains in the hope of seeing Frostcrag Spire in the distance, eventually seeing it. I travel up to it on Shadowmere to find I can't get in. I later find out that the PC will recieve the deed and key on loading. So from what I can see, this mod also works, it is only the messages upon loading that are not.
I didn't actually know the loaction of the Mehrune's Dagger quest so I was limited here, but it was ticked on the data files menu. I'm not sure whether you have to have completed the main questliine for this, I know it involves Helseth in the plotline, but the character I use at the moment is head of all the major factions, and I have tried using various characters for this, also tried new games for them to work and nothing.
I have the 1.1 UK patch installed aswell.
At the advice of another, as I did download and install these, loading them with Oblivion for the first time together, I have uninstalled and then reinstalled all four plugins, yet the The Orrery remains the only working plugin.
I have sent a mail to the Oblivion support, although I doubt I will recieve an answer soon, so I'm wondering if anyone else has had this experience before and if they could offer some help on the subject. Thanks in advance.

The response I recieved merely said that I should verify whether I had checked the files in the data file, which I had said in the email anyway, especially since I could travel to the places from the plugins too.
