I should have read this thread first.  I just ordered an HR44 to replace my HR34 (which I dislike and my wife hates) from Solid Signal.  Anyway, I hope I haven't made a mistake.  I had planned on moving the 34 to a "secondary" position and retire one of the 24s.

Under the features section of the 44 on Solid Signal's site it says that DirecTV will only activate one Genie per account. You probably have to retire the 34 and keep your 24.

Yep, you have to deactivate the HR34 then have them activate the HR44. You will have to return the HR34.
