    While at CES I was invited along with a group of other DBSTalk members to visit the private DIRECTV suite. We were able to see the HR44 and participate in a little Q & A session. Here are some of the pics from that visit. Most of the question you may have will be eaily found in our First Look found here: http://www.hr20.dbstalk.com/HR44-700 First Look.pdf

    On of the "rumors" going around is that the HR44 only has 3 tuners available, I assure you it is the same as the HR34 and has 5 (+1 for guide data.)

    Winters,...
    It might even be safe to say there's more in a smaller footprint. Nice design.

    The HR44 was indeed seen at CES 2013 in more than one location - a very impressive unit with a near smaller and refined form factor.

    The First Look post/thread adds alot of detail on that front.

    Is there anymore news about how the PS3 can be used as a client because this is something I am very interested in since I am still using a very old HR20 that is very slow.

    When can we expect to be able to get one? I'll be moving in March/April and will finally upgrade to the genie so I'd really like to be able to have a smaller and faster box.

    The search and record up to a year in advance, is that for the HR44? Will that be an option for the HR34?

    That's a Genie feature, so should be for either box.

    It's my understanding that, except for wi-fi, the HR34 and HR44 are functionally identical.

    It's a nice looking design and smaller than the HR24, but I would continue to use original Directv remote(don't like the "new" remote) just hopeful that software or hardware don't kill it.
