Gary,

I also have an HR10-250. I own it. Is your HR10-250 owned or leased?

Roger.

Owned. I suspect the rep said it would not
work because it can not use swm or share with the genie.
i suspect it'll be fine once i speak with the installer...

The only difference with the HR10, is that you can watch the recordings even after it has been deactivated, unlike the HR20

I see solidsignal has changed from 2 weeks to get an HR44 to usually ships the same day.  Does this mean national release is imminent?

Since I got a free Genie upgrade, I wasn't sure if they were available here in the northern part of Illinois, but I just confirmed it with the tech and my HR44 will be installed today.

I just had to reschedule my appointment for this morning in Southern NH, no HR44 yet. They said 1 month!  I rescheduled for 2.5 weeks.

I saw the question asked a couple of pages ago, but never saw an answer.

 

Anyone hear of the HR44 in the Atlanta area?

 

Thanks.

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.
I have the Genie scheduled today in Southern CA. The installer just called with a ETA. I asked if he had the HR44. He told they had all HR44s now.

Where in SoCal?  I'm in Orange County and am thinking of signing up for Directv, but will only do so if I can get the HR44.

Might be a good idea to start an HR44 deployment thread - I'll see if I can start a thread that catches on....

 

*Edit - I just threw something quick and dirty together at this thread - fee free to choose your city if you already have an HR44.

Rolled the dice and called them this afternoon.  Getting a Genie installed next Wednesday, $49.00 for the install and that is it.  They will convert my Slimline to the new SWM system and I keep my HR20-700 and H21, replace the standard def DVR with the Genie.  Now I just wait to see if I get lucky and get the HR44.

Are people encountering less resistance to getting the upgrades or do we still need to play the retention games?

 

Any program credits too?

 

I'm interested in the HR44 but I could save a lot of money in subscription fees by switching to Comcast.  I'd probably have to make an WMC DVR to do it so there will be upfront costs but that computer will be mine to keep and will be able to use for a long time.

In my case all I did was call, explain that I was interested in the Genie and after verifying my account info she told me that there was an offer on my account and it would be just a $49.00 install fee.  That includes a cinema connection kit and she did tell me there were programming offers on my account as well that all involved turning on things like HBO, Showtime etc that I was not really interested in.

Depending on where your Genie is installed, you may not need a CCK, but might as well get one anyway in case you move things around. (The Genie has built in internet connectio.)

I live in San Francisco and I had scheduled for a technician to install the HR44 this morning.    I clearly told the dispatcher a couple of days earlier that I wanted the HR44, but when the technician called me 30 minutes before his arrival, I asked him, to make sure, that he was bringing the HR 44.    To my surprise he said he was planning on installing the HR34 at my place.  Needless to say I cancelled the appointment.  He said there are no HR44 being installed in SF at this time BUT they will be receiving them in about two weeks.    Can't wait until then!    Almost there, folks!
