    Santa...
    Gary,
    I also have an HR10-250. I own it. Is your HR10-250 owned or leased?
    Roger.

    Owned. I suspect the rep said it would not
    work because it can not use swm or share with the genie.
    i suspect it'll be fine once i speak with the installer...

    The only difference with the HR10, is that you can watch the recordings even after it has been deactivated, unlike the HR20

    well, that and I think Directv may broadcast 1 channel in HD compatible with it (HD MPEG2, if that many)...

    I think you are overestimating.

    I see solidsignal has changed from 2 weeks to get an HR44 to usually ships the same day. Does this mean national release is imminent?

    Since I got a free Genie upgrade, I wasn't sure if they were available here in the northern part of Illinois, but I just confirmed it with the tech and my HR44 will be installed today.

    I just had to reschedule my appointment for this morning in Southern NH, no HR44 yet. They said 1 month! I rescheduled for 2.5 weeks.

    I saw the question asked a couple of pages ago, but never saw an answer.

    Anyone hear of the HR44 in the Atlanta area?

    Thanks.

    I have the Genie scheduled today in Southern CA. The installer just called with a ETA. I asked if he had the HR44. He told they had all HR44s now.

    Where in SoCal? I'm in Orange County and am thinking of signing up for Directv, but will only do so if I can get the HR44.

    Might be a good idea to start an HR44 deployment thread - I'll see if I can start a thread that catches on....

    *Edit - I just threw something quick and dirty together at this thread - fee free to choose your city if you already have an HR44.

    Rolled the dice and called them this afternoon. Getting a Genie installed next Wednesday, $49.00 for the install and that is it. They will convert my Slimline to the new SWM system and I keep my HR20-700 and H21, replace the standard def DVR with the Genie. Now I just wait to see if I get lucky and get the HR44.
