I can confirm that AM21 works with HR34.

I will probably try and get one of these next summer. Pull the threat of leaving for Comcast so I can get a deal on one. I'm able to work with the size of the hard drive in my current receiver, but I'd really like that 100 series link bump. If they just gave me that on my current receiver, I probably wouldn't even both getting an HR34.

Also, I don't want a second receiver in my house just to get to 100 series links. :)

:goodjob: :)

That's almost my perfect setup. However, since I have three kids (rather than the statistically more-likely 2), my ideal setup is an HR34 along with a secondary HR24, and then 3 H24 or H25 boxes in the kids' rooms.

I believe the key portion of the other poster's message was "outside of the field trial" ;)

PS The installer's location is Phoenix. Lucky folks!

I'll be going back to D* sometime next month in the Phoenix area, hopefully I will be able to get one. My wife will be the new customer in a new house, I was the previous customer in a previous home.

Does that make any sense, sorry if it doesn't?

What HDD is in the HR34? Is the WD HDD shortage an issue with the manufacturing of HR34?

OK folks, I'm getting the word that HR34s are going to hit the streets in test markets anytime now, so I'm closing this one in favor of the formal issues and discussion threads.
