    This is the official discussion/anticipation thread for the HR34, continued over from the first look thread.

    Please do not post in the issues thread if you do not have an HR34; please post here instead.

    I'm waiting to see someone post that they have actually received one of these boxes from DirecTV. Then I'll know there is hope. :D

    You haven't gotten one yet? :D

    I would think that we would see someone on here thats an "in house" installer at least say they have them in the shop now, or have installed them. I know that one guy posted up he installed one in a home the other day but that was his first and only post here.

    And at the other end, there this new customer in Austin that keeps turning away installers because they don't have a HR34.

    Me. I'm out of luck until this limited trial area thingy is over or when a third party vendor get some HR34.

    is your shop/warehouse full of them or does the stock there look like its clearly a "limited/small" # available? Or it seem like they have about "normal" amounts compared to the other units?

    That's good to know, because that means no change in monthly rental fee from any other DVR.

    "When it comes to speed, the HR34 performs as well as an HR24, if not better"
    That does not sound all that much faster, if their own promotional material isn't selling it as such.

    Personally I know I don't need more tuners at this time, I'm more interested in speed, performance, and new software features.

    I can definitely see the appeal for people in large households though.

    Well, I'm in the Austin area but don't expect to be able to get one until they're in wider distribution. :(

    I would expect national new customer only roll out within the next 30 days and then 3 months after that we might start to see them for existing.

    I guess that's where I'm confused. How does it get on the workorder if the customer isn't specifically ordering it? Is D* just giving out "freebies" in the limited release markets?

    you know how people are though. they call and order something and the rep says some stuff bout how they have this dvr and pushes it, the people sign up for it thinking its the regular dvr and then are surprised at what they actually got.

    Wouldn't that be ironic; the ones (in the test markets) who want it can't get it, and the ones that don't care get an HR34 :lol:

    They would certainly market the features it has. They didn't spend money developing it to not communicate its features.
