    Do you live in the Susquehanna Valley area Merg? Great place to raise kids. To think my bill dropped from around $160 to about $80 with all the credits thrown in, plus free Sunday Ticket, I just can't say enough good things about my DirecTv experience. Loyal customer since 07' and I plan to stay that way!

    Used to live in Manheim Township. Now live in Northern VA. Always loved me some Oregon Dairy and Turkey Hill. I remember the original little white store building before the supermarket opened.

    I have a HR24-500 and want to upgrade to the Genie. Protection plan means it's free. However, which Genie is better and what's the difference between the HR34 and the HR44?

    I also plan to attach a 4TB hard drive via eSATA. Any thing I should know about before I call and set up an appointment?

    First you should know there is no guarantees on which one of those units you'll receive. It all depends on what is on the installer's truck.

    The 44 is smaller and others report a bit faster than the 34. The 44 also has digital audio output.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the info! I appreciate it! :)

    I do hope I get a 44. My HR24-500 acts like a snail, at times. Push a button, wait 3-5 seconds before something happens.

    That is unusual. Maybe need to do a menu reset or clear the cache?

    You don't list your location on your profile, but there is a thread here that lists locations people have received 44s.
