    I called DTV early this morning to troubleshoot power issues I have been having with my HR-34. Result was they are sending me a replacement via FedEx and DTV rep said it would most likely be the same receiver. Does anybody have any input as to which receiver I will be sent? She said they could send an HR-44 as my upgrade and renew my contract for 2 years. I told her I didn't want to extend as I didn't feel it was necessary. Is there a possibility I could get lucky and get an HR-44 as replacement?

    hr44 is not considered an upgrade

    you will more than likely get a 34, even hsp is installing refurbed 34 on new accounts now.

    if you had a tech replace it you might get a 44 if thats all that was on truck

    I just called in and said my dish fell off the roof, had my friend pull my SC forward and replace my 34 with a 44, once i added a client i couldnt stand the slowness of my 34, there was nothing wrong with the 34, just slow. New 44 works awesome with client, which is still a c31

    Most likely you'll get an HR34.

    There is no rhyme or reason on how DirecTV sends replacements receivers, but "history" tells us you will get an HR34

    "history" proves to be right one more time!
