Or the possibility that the HR44 already has a bridge/router chip built in


I don't understand all of the technical aspects of my setup, but I was told this:

C41's connect to HR44 via coax and coax only. The HR44 then connects to my wireless router via wireless - there is no media center connection involved.

The wireless feature of the 44 is "only for" internet access.

What your new 44 has is the wireless CCK built in, so you don't need an external.

HR44 just installed. Encountered bugs. If you are in one of the beta-test markets and have an HR44, I have started a new thread for reporting bugs.

You might want to give it 24 hours for the updates.

I'd be interested in knowing what temperature the HR-44's run at with an external power supply and no fan. Also, how does that compare to the temperature of HR-34's?

My HR44-700, running in an equipment rack with an open back is running at 117. The HR34-700 running in an open rack is running 109.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

Just another data point here:
open shelf for both and the 44-700 is 106º and the 34-700 just coming out of standby is 104º

HR44 is sitting in an enclosed TV stand, and is running at 109 degrees.

There is a fan inside the HR44 but from what I understand it is there for emergency cooling.

The fan is visible in the first look. I've notice that some people are saying there is no fan, I know there is one in the HR44-700.

Hate to hijack the thread but has anyone heard which markets are online to receive the HR44? I've heard CA and the Dallas, TX area, but that's about it so far.
I'm personally in New Orleans, so I think my chances are low, just curious though.

Denver is another. I had mine installed on Monday.

I've been told that a total of 9,000 customers nationwide will be beta testing. I've already found a couple of bugs.

Well not entirely true.

One can connect a C31 or C41 to a Wireless Cinema Connection Kit (WCCK) with coax and then use the WCCK as a bridge. The combo makes a wireless client for those places where it's not convenient to run cable.

You'll need a good wireless access point/router of course.

I will be helping a friend order a DirecTV Genie and internet this afternoon through Centurylink (dropping Comcast). Any way to request a HR44 since we are in Denver or is it luck of the draw?

It's my understanding that there only are HR44s available n the Denver area.

I think a Genie is a Genie as far as DirecTV is concerned. That means you could get a 34 or a 44. Just like an HD DVR is an HD DVR, so you could get an HR21, HR22, HR24.

As to what may or may not be available in any particular market, I don't know. That changes pretty regularly.
