Yes, but I'd hard wire it if it was going to be the interface for multiple DVRs. Get a few MRV streams going on, then a few VOD downloads, could get to be a lot for a wireless network.


Um, problem with that assert action. No Whole Home Service will go over the wireless, only Video On Demand.

Wonder if one would be able to get a 44 to go with a 34 (and get rid of my HR22 & HR24)??


Not at this time. But hopefully someday.

That's the ultimate setup for some, his and hers beast DVRs, along with a few speedy H25's, a rockin setup someday. Or even two 44's if/when allowed. Along with a nomad, and Slingbox, awesomeness.

I got to play with one today.

It really is insane how fast this receiver restarts. Seeing it go from receiving satellite info from 0% to 100% in six seconds is something that needs to be seen to be believed. I want!

I'd like to see a video posted on You Tube showing its speed.

Are any "First lookers" able to post videos on how fast this thing is? Or to the very least have some timed comparisons? Like an HR20 vs HR24 vs HR34 vs HR44 time test.

Well for the HR44 to be a hell of a lot faster, it must have a better CPU and probably more flash memory for quick loading.

What are the HR44 chipset specs?

I suspect you won't find that information posted.

My experience with 700 series products has always been very good. Had an HR20-700, now a HR34-700 so I suspect the HR44-700 is super.

Nice First Look folks.

CCS has been giving us headaches with the c31's, way too many service calls and our shop is tired of this. Policy now and this is coming from the top at D is even if the house is pre wired and its CCS we have to replace it. Either by running the wires outside or wall fishing.


This is the most ridiculous post I have read in a while.:nono2:

Makes you wonder what happened to the 23-700, doesn't it?

Time to upgrade to the HR44 when it comes available.
