    Got my service call from the Case Management technician (still from Mas Tec) in Coral Gables, FL (33133) and he replaced the power inserter and the HR 34 with an HR 44. He said that was all they had now in the warehouse.

    So, there is hope for South Floridians.

    All I know about it now is that it has shiny blue lights and is smaller. I had to get to work.

    BUT, since some were positing that a huge installer like Mas Tec might be one of the last to get the 44's, I thought I would pass it on.

    For those who don't know, Coral Gables is in mid Dade County, just southwest of the city of Miami.

    If you really, really, really want a 44 purchase one from SS, WK, or Amazon. Then call D* and ask to be reimbursed for the cost. You might be surprised at what you receive. :up:

    For those that previously used the HR34 and now have a HR44, is there any difference in picture quality between the two receivers?

    Pretty sure Ironwood is not even a company anymore they were bought by DTV and now all O&O offices.

    The roll out does not go by company, rather by market. Mastec has (most of) the Northeast region, yet no 44s

    I think the point of the poster who said that was that since Mastec has so many techs, and lots of warehouses, and so many locations, they would likely take longer to exhaust their inventory of HR 34's than a small installer with one or two techs and no warehouse (if there even is such an animal). So, since Mastec showed up at my house with a 44, I thought I would let him know that at least in South Florida, they are installing 44's.

    I suspect that DTV is not going to send a newer model while the warehouses are full of new old stock. At least that is what I think the person meant, and I was responding to that.

    Thanks. You were probably responding to my earlier post. At the time, the point that I was trying to make was that, even though a local retailer might have 44's available, that didn't necessarily means that a DirecTV installer, such as Mastec, would also have them available in the same area, due to different inventory requirements of a Mastec vs a small Home Theater installation shop.

    I doubt that Mastec has its own national distribution facility where all of the inventory for the various markets it supports are stored. I would think that each individual market would have its own inventory, all supported by DirecTV's large distribution facility (or facilities). So, while Mastec in S Florida may be installing HR44's, that wouldn't necessarily mean that Mastec NYC has access to them as well.

    If DirecTV wanted 44 is NY now, there would be there.

    Got an HR44 in Memphis today. The tech said this market only has 44s now-- no more 34s.

    So far, it's great. Very fast, and I like the new remote. Much more ergonomic.

    The HR 44 is in East Central Florida. I got one installed on Wednesday. The tech seemed almost surprised that I would prefer the HR44 over the HR34. Either way its in and boy is it fast. Of course I am upgrading from the HR20 so its not hard to impress me.

    I just got the HR44 installed yesterday in the Binghamton, NY area. Mastec is the installation group.

    I'm sure someone has asked but are they available in LA?
