    I really don't see what the big scuffle is with everyone wanting a HR44? I have used both and don't really see a difference other than the fact that the 44 offers wireless. I am trying to rid my house of wireless so maybe that is why i don't see the big deal.

    I was hoping for it because I have read that it functions better with RVU TVs, which I knew I would be using at my parent's house.

    I've just updated the survey so that it's a bit more accurate and you can now manually enter in your city and state. May be moot as I think the HR44's are now out in full force. I know I've been loving mine since it was installed the other month and I added a 3TB drive soon after I got it (hence main reason why I haven't kept up with the map updating!).

    BTW - RC71 remotes are ridiculously cheap for some reason - my installer didn't have enough so I just went out and bought some instead of fighting with DTV. So no I have a set of new remotes as well as the old school ones as backups. Couldn't be happier with my installation also. Have not had any major hiccups even with the 3TB drive I added on.

    The reason I wanted, and still want a HR44 over the HR34 is the power supply being located as a brick instead of in the unit itself. Really does help with heating issues in a confined space.

    I'm anxiously waiting for the day when directv allows two HR44/HR34 to be installed. Do I REALLY need the ability to have 10 tuners? Not really.. HOWEVER. I do have enough conflicts in recordings where the extra 5 tuners would come in very handy. Hopefully 2 genies will be coming VERY soon.

    anyone know if any HR44's have been installed in the Utica, NY area? I cannot even find an installer for my location and I asked the folks at DirecTv and they couldnt give me contact info for one. I would love to upgrade to the genie set up and have been patiently waiting for the HR44 to come into my area.

    I called the Multiband office for the Louisville, KY market to see if I could discover when they thought they'd be getting HR44s in. On the phone tree to their office #, they had an option 3 for the warehouse so I tried that and spoke to someone who said that they were coming in Tuesday of next week and so they'd be out in the field Wednesday and beyond.

    He also confirmed that if I schedule my appt for Wednesday or beyond, that if they didn't have them on the truck at that time for whatever reason to just tell the tech and they'd re-pull from the warehouse.

    So looks like patience to soon be rewarded in the Louisville, KY market.

    Install was yesterday and I got an HR44-500. So it looks like they are available on the west side and south side of Houston.

    All I can say is WOW this thing is fast. I just wish they could make a non-Genie HD-DVR that was as quick as this. Sure the HR 24 is quick, but this is a step above that.

    Just getting a 34 installed here in Seattle right now on a free upgrade--after two lower level, and one upper level, CSRs insisted to me I'd get a 44. Install guy has never seen a 44, and has been told he'll start getting them in December.

    For those in Long Island NY, HR44 are here. but warehouse guy will NOT give them out until current HR34 stock is depleted. it can take another week.

    you mean upstate NY? if so, it is the same HSP which is Mastec. if so, they should be out in the field shortly

    Depending on where you're from I guess Utica is considered either upstate or central New York. Either way I take your meaning. I think mastec did my original install some years ago, just wish I had kept their contact info. But at least the hr44 drought is finally about to end!
