So the HR44 and C41 clients are now set to launch on February 7, shocker...

Anyways, not sure how much of the country will be able to get one around that date but at least it's official.

So what's a link to an ebay auction offer for a classic edition of "LOOK Magazine" have to do with anything? :D

I've got several friends that work for the company in different states. They were all given the same information today. This thread can be locked if a moderator would like to. But the information is correct.

What company? Pace or DirecTV?

IMHO, you may have valid inside sources, but that doesn't mean "it's official".

There's a difference between a field beta and a launch. Are you sure you're using the right word?

Was wondering. Would a HR34 owner be able to get a HR44 also?? And have it enabled by D.

Currently no, we were told this May change in the future but that was all that was said.

Are there any problems if someone wanted to pay for it themselves from a place like Solid Signal and then just send back the HR34 to DirecTV?

I thought you meant having an HR34 & 44 at the same time, sorry.

You would probably not be able to specifically ask DIRECTV for the 44 but I do think you could order a 44 from Solid Signal and then return the 34. At some point you may be able to get the 44 from Solid Signal and keep the 34 connected too but you would probably have to upgrade your switch to do that.

I wasn't the one who asked the original question. I was just piggybacking on this thread with that question. I just had a Genie setup installed and I might be willing to pay for an upgrade myself in about a year if there's a big performance boost by having the HR44.

Dang Scott. I saw the word May first and immediately thought this coming May. :P

Why can I get to the "Adult's Only" area faster than I can get to the "ToDo" List?  DirecTV, that is messed up!!!
