Yes, it's true. But still haggling with D* to confirm that installs actually will start next week. Getting the runaround right now. But if they hit the warehouse on Sunday, I should have one by week's end.

According to the block diagram of the HR44-500 submission by Humax, the CPU is a BCM7346. That's about 6000 DMIPS performance.


https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout=500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=667173&fcc_id='O6ZHR44

Not sure about the HR44-700 or HR44-200, but all containing the HR44 designation, they should all be designed with the equivalent level of performance.

Much better. The BCM7346 was released in 2011. The HR34 processor is from 2009-2010 (not sure of the part #, never confirmed).

I'm jealous. I'm thinking that, shortly after the national rollout, I'm going to have to start looking for DirecTV vans, so I can ask the installers whether they are installing the HR-44 yet.
