There is a fairly large Directv installation business based out of a industrial park near my home, they install in the north Georgia region. I happened to be working next door and had the opportunity to ask the installers which genie they are installing. HR44 was they reply. I have arranged for my genie install on Wednesday.

New here- have anolder model HD DVR- and looking to cash in on my upgrade.

 

I inquired with my provider D* about getting a HR44-- of course I got the run around "can't gaurantee... etc"

 

I am in the Raleigh area- Cary NC to be exact- any news on how likely i would to be getting the neww\er model? I have read this very infomrative and appreciated thread and understand it's sort of a day of what's on the installers truck deal- but just wondered since Raleigh was a test market if by this point the HR44 are basically standard? I can wait as well so might just give it until early fall- however, my old remote is starting to wear- so might need to do some surgery later to make it to Fall.

Make the best deal with D* in upgrading to Genie and then wait for the installer to call. Inquire if the installer has a HR44 for you, if not postpone your install until they have one. :roundandr  Good luck!

We are so happy with our HR44.  The HR24 moves at a snail's pace comparatively. I wasn't sure I was getting the 44 before the tech arrived, but when I asked him if he had to install an Internet Connection Kit and he said no, it was wirelessly built in to the receiver, I replied, so I'm getting an HR44 and he said yup!

While the HR44 is faster, the HR24 is by no means "a snail"

While "your" HR24 may have moved at a snail's pace it doesn't mean all HR24's perform that way.

At one time my HR24-200 became slow particularly while using the guide with the channel movie banners displayed. I took some tips from this site and changed some settings and have had no more issues. You may want to try the same.

Good to hear they're making their way down to the south FL market. Might have to make a call soon to request one.

Yes, I got one this morning in Coral Gables.   The tech said Mas Tec only had 44's as of now.   Could be true.   As I said in a previous post (might have been another thread), I got an HR 34 in late May as a replacement for another HR 34 in a service call.

Say I ended up with a refurbished HR34 when I had a Genie sent to me (days before I found this thread unfortunately).  If I had freezing problems and they sent a tech out would he replace it with a HR44 if that is all he had or do they hold back HR34s as replacements?  I'm in the Cleveland, OH area so they have been installing HR44s for awhile. (Or would DTV make me send it back and send me another refurbished HR34?)

I think that happened to me.   I had an HR34 which worked fine for months.   Then, in late May, it started freezing and stuttering.  Through the protection plan I got a replacement and it was another HR34 which worked fine for a few weeks and then went south too.    I would have been totally satisfied with another HR 34 because all I really cared about was that it would work as designed, but then in the last week of June they came out again and replaced it with an HR 44.   I think what you get depends entirely on what is on the truck, but in South Florida, the tech told me they had only 44's now.    I have no idea what would have happened if they were sending it out directly.   I think (but do not know for sure) that I got a refurbed 34 which, since the problem is intermittent, had the same problem as my first genie.

New here- have anolder model HD DVR- and looking to cash in on my upgrade.

 

I inquired with my provider D* about getting a HR44-- of course I got the run around "can't gaurantee... etc"

 

I am in the Raleigh area- Cary NC to be exact- any news on how likely i would to be getting the neww\er model? I have read this very infomrative and appreciated thread and understand it's sort of a day of what's on the installers truck deal- but just wondered since Raleigh was a test market if by this point the HR44 are basically standard? I can wait as well so might just give it until early fall- however, my old remote is starting to wear- so might need to do some surgery later to make it to Fall.

 

All we have are HR44's right now. You might want to place your order. We also just got a C41W and a Base Station in our training room, won't be long now.;)

Has anyone been able to get 2 or more HR44s from D* without paying $400 each?

 

I know one is intended to server the whole home but if I'm signing on to a 2-year commitment, I'd rather have newer, more current hardware all around, rather than put up with 3-5 year old hardware.

 

I believe my HR22 is about 3-5 years old
