    Is the list of retailers listed there in any way related to the installers for the area? I put in my zip code and the installers who have been to my house for the past 15? years are not listed and most of those listed look like mom and pop retailers from the names and locations that I am familiar with. I get the impression that they would be happy to sign you up for service, but anything else???

    I had an install in the Portland, OR area on 7/30 and requested the installer call before coming to verify equipment. He did not call and of course showed up with a darn 34. I was frustrated and was going to reschedule, but he says that they have no 44's in the area and they are not even on any kind of list to get them soon. After the whole process to get the Genie in the first place, I just took it. He did a hardwired GenieGo to supply the network and it works much better than the wireless CCK we had. I was disappointed but figured with my luck it will end up going out anyway, and I can try for a 44. If you are in this area, I would recommend you wait!

    Signed a new contract for the first time in years to upgrade my equipment. I was pleasantly surprised when the installer brought in the HR44-700 and 3 C41-700 clients. When I saw the RF I was a bit worried since I have a harmony remote and a slingbox. Was happy to find out it can do both IR & RF at the same time.

    I didn't care anything about getting the GenieGo since I have XBMC and a slingbox. I'm curious if I could've gotten it for free though!

    I ordered a Genie and requested an HR44/41 but was shipped a 34/31. When I called to tell them I didn't want the 34/31 they sent a tech right over who had a 44/41 his truck. They also gave me $35/mo off my bill for a year for my inconvenience. I'm very pleased and having 7 tuners is very convenient.

    How were you able to do this? I am on the phone with DTV retention right now and they say they WILL NOT guarantee which one you get.

    They didn't guarantee HR44 but he put it in the notes. When HR34/31 arrived I called and told them I'd like to cancel order. He then offered to send out tech. As a 6 year premier sub I am usually able to get things. I am also very good at dealing with CSR's.

    I am scheduled for install on Monday. I could have easily swapped it out myself but decided on having the sevice call as I think I stand a better chance of getting the HR44. I will also get a call the night before and can just ask the tech then which one he has and can decide to cancel then if I want. Seems to me the only advantage (for me) is the HR44 is faster (no small thing). My internet connection is hard wired so I don't need wireless, I have plenty of room in my media cabinet. Also appears that if they bring a HR34 it will be likely be a referb. How about stability between the two??

    So the installer had a hr34. Said hr44 may show up in a month's time, no guarantees though. I proceeded with the installation since it was a move install and I didn't want to delay that indefinitely.

    Darn, my Genie upgrade is for the 23rd up in Anacortes. I guess I'll take whatever they have on the truck but maybe I'll get lucky.
