Hi all-

 

I've been seeing a lot of threads filled with "are HR44's being deployed in XYZ City yet?" and thought it would be a good idea to just create a thread where people who already have their HR44's up and running can mark which city they are in.

 

Soooo...here's a survey that lists the top cities in the US - just pick the city (or closest city) if you have an HR44 installed.

 

**Edit 10/2** - Map updated with the most recent installs

 

Survey link ->  GoogleDocs

 

To see the results in raw format click here.

 

The GoogleFusion map plotting should also update a bit faster as I have it all scripted out now - however I still have to do it manually. (Last update 8/29)

 

Hopefully this thread catches on as D* is apparently widening the scope of their deployment beyond the 10 or so test markets. 

 

This survey is intended to track DTV installs, not self-installs

 

Thanks,

-T

I assume you're interested in only those reports from people who got theirs from DirecTV and not from a reseller.

Cool survey. Might want to edit the survey not to include number counts for "Just Show Me The Results"..showing 6 total, but zero installs..

Excellent idea, Tavenator.  My installer won't answer his phone or returns calls.  I'll use your survey to know when HR44 is available in Greensboro, NC.

Agreed, but I couldn't find a way to show the results without having to pay survey monkey for a pro account - the only way to get the results is to take
the survey.

Looks like your survey has reset itself.

Sorry about that - I think I fixed the issue.

Visited friends in Aspen, CO. a week ago, watched Directv on their newly installed(an upgrade by the way) HR44. Installer worked out of the Avon area, which is about halfway between Denver and Grand Junction. Surprising there are no reports of the HR44 in the Denver area as I am sure they have been installed there. I understand this survey is far from an accurate sampling, and the HR44's are probably available in a lot more locales than depicted here.

HR21-100 HDMI to 32" LG and 20" AOC

Directv since 1996(the USSB,Pegasus days...)

I saw HR44's on two separate DirecTV installer's trucks in the Detroit area. The installers were from Multiband.

Just received my DTV upgrade today via drop ship and was happily surprised to see an HR-44-500 sitting on the doorstep.  Location is Denver suburbs.

I had the HR44-500 installed Friday in the DFW area.

 

I switched back to DTV after a 3 year hiatus. The HR44/C31 setup is fantastic.  Its light years ahead of the old HR20 setup.

HR44's now being deployed in the New Orleans area as well.

 

Seems like it might now be going national? I wonder if DTV will even have an official HR44 release announcement? I'm actually guessing no, as it would likely lead to a surge of upgrade requests / complaints from HR34 owners. Let sleeping dogs lie as they say.

 

*Edit - I also had to ditch SurveyMonkey in favor of good 'ol Google Docs - please see my original comment for the changes - i've already migrated the data so there's no need to redo.
