That would be worth an upgrade, over the HR34.

You cut the line too quickly....

I read your post just fine.
If Directv came out with an 8 tuner Genie, I would then upgrade my HR34 to it , I don't care if it's bigger.
That would be worth a Free or even $200 upgrade with a commitment.

The HR44 is not worth that over a 34.
Only the Die hard, can't be told anything directv fans think it's worth paying $200 and signing a 24 month addtional commitment on something that's only a little faster to respond, and is smaller.
Most people are not going to do an upgrade like that.
Myself included.
If you have to start paying addtional money for better equipment during your current contract , than that's a big minus for directv cost wise and operation wise as a company.
So figure that into your bottom line.

Right now, when my contact expires if Directv wants me to stay and sign again, then yes I will demand the HR44, and my HR23 upgraded to HR24.

But I'm not dropping a dime on it.
