Having my HR44 installed right now in Saline, Michigan

 

After the install, will have:

 

  • HR44
  • HR24
  • H24
  • D12

 

Also having them upgrade me to the SWiM 16 as well.  Given that we had a DECA from our past install we can apparently use that for our network connection and don't need to make use of the WiFi which is what I prefer.

Awesome! How did you go about getting the HR44? I am in Michigan as well and would love to have the HR44.

Schedule your upgrade with DirecTV-

 

Call Multiband at 866-576-2071 option 1, then option 3

 

Tell them you need help with your pending directv install.  They will call up your work order, and you can tell them you want the hr44.

 

Works amazingly well, and the whole-home DVR with the HR44 & HR24 is incredible.

MultiBand is an HSP or Home Service Provider and/or authorized contractor, not be confused with a sub-contractor

Good luck!

 

Yeah, MultiBand is DirecTV's HSP here in Michigan.  I believe they are state-wide however don't quote me on it!

 

The whole system is working great, and so glad the tech had a SWiM 16 in his truck, too.

Swapped back to Directv, and had my install this past saturday.  

I was pleasantly surprised to get the HR-44 and C-41 clients. 

 

This is in Mississippi, so they are starting to get out everywhere it seems.

Any news on Chicago for the HR-44?  Does Multiband service the Chicago area?

Talked to a DTV installer on a job today in San Jose, Ca. and he said August for us. Said he hadn't even been to training on the 44 yet.

That's ridiculous.  What kind of training do they need if they're already installing 34s?

 

Hookups should be the same, unless they're doing wireless hookups and how much additional training would it require to connect to a wireless network?

 

Has anyone from the Bay ARea tried to request the 44?

Just another misinformed installer a couple of weeks at most and all of CA will be installed with HR44.

I have a 5-21 install so I better reschedule.  Is there a way to confirm for sure ahead of time?

Nope, short of checking this site or others for updates.

If a tech is coming to swap that HR20 for the genie he will be required to retrieve the old box.

They told me that they didn't want the old box back.  But what do "They" know, right?  :)
