Hopefully not a hijack. The circle of blue LEDs on thethe HR20 can be dimmed and turned off by repeatedly pushing left and right arrows on the faceplate.

Waiting for HR44 to become available in Dallas/Fort worth................

I can confirm that the Minneapolis market is getting only HR44 Genie units at this point. I had my installed today and he said the only reason that 34's would come back through would be because they were low on 44's.

Just had my HR44 installed in Phoenix. After playing with it for awhile all I can saw "Wow, this thing is fast!"

SF is scheduled to receive the HR44's on or about 5/23


I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Do you know when the rest of Los Angeles will receive them?  They have been only in selected offices.

This one?  Not sure what you mean?

 

 

"Kram,

this is normal, and it's why DIRECTV doesn't announce firm release dates for its hardware. A tentative date was leaked to the internet by installers who saw it in a training video, and the rumor took off."

Are the HR44s only being deployed on truck rolls, or are they being drop shipped to addresses in the test markets also?

 

Asking because my HR21's disk is on its way out after 5 years, and a 'Genie' is being drop shipped.  Hoping for a 44 vs. a 34.

Just signed up for DirecTV and surprisingly had the HR44 installed in Oak Lawn, Illinois (Chicago Suburb).  Just thought I'd let you all know.

Just had an HR44 installed here in Burbank, CA. Based on initial testing, it is amazingly fast and working great with my HR24.  Installer said that he's installing nothing but HR44s throughout most of Los Angeles.  BTW, passed on the C41 due to forum posts and the advice of my installer who said he hears tons of complaints daily about the C31 and C41 clients.
