Shiny new HR44 dropped off today. :hurah:
Cool! Good news. But I wasn't "wrong" in predicting chances. You were among the lucky 49%.....
Got a 44 installed yesterday, the tech was a nice guy. Love it.
Will the tech call the day before, or day off, so I can ensure they have a 44 on the truck?
The tech called me the morning of the install.
We had a couple of DirecTV installers in our office yesterday, had a chance to pick their brains on the 34/44 situation. They said most but not all of the Genies they install are 44, but they still have 34s in the warehouse. When I asked if they were running out of 34's, they said no, they still get new shipments of 34s, but most are 44s. I was surprised to hear that 34's are still being shipped to warehouses.
I asked how to make sure one gets a 44, they said just insist on it, and CSR will put it on the service ticket.
This is in HOUSTON.
Well, no word yet. Ive decided I will just accept even the HR34. The fall season is too ramped up now, cant afford to wait another couple of weeks.
We usually get caught up in January, if need be Ill buy a HR44 then from a 3rd party. Will update later what I get regardless.
I live in northern Louisiana and got a HR44 shipped to me last week.
Well, good news is the guy has an HR44 on the truck (I havent seen it yet). Bad news is I have to have a pole mount, but his shovel is broken so he had to go and get one from somewhere about 20 mins one way away.
He appears to be a contractor (personal vehicle), and he said the company they work for out of a neighboring city is bad about this. Evidently he was late getting here this AM because he had to drive around and get the gear he needed for installs today. Havent seen this in awhile, I thought Directv and Dish had worked these issues out...
I remember getting installs 10 years ago, it was like the wild wild west.
HR44-200, Mobile Alabama.
HR44/700 provided by Mastec in White Plains, NY.
Do you have contact info for mastec Brit_In_NY?
Tried that website before, peds48. All it did was point me to the 800 number for direcTv, which was next to useless.
My parents got an HR44-700 today in Palm Springs, FL. The installer said all they install anymore is HR44's, they don't even have HR24's.
HR44-700 where Oliver Hazzard Perry built his fleet
Sent from my GT-P3113 using DBSTalk mobile app
Got Genie install today. HR44-500 in West Los Angeles.
I just updated the deployment map.
May be the last update as it's apparent that DTV is pretty much out of the 34's.
I have an install on Friday in Indianapolis. For some reason I still think they'll show up with the HR-34.
