well...Im getting the HR34 as we speak.  I decided to go ahead and take it....no HR44 here in Norfolk.  I should be able to re-config my JVC amp and I'm off to enjoying the Genie.  I hope I made the right decision.

 

Thanks to all

ok i understand that you might not get a 44,, but i was told they could drop ship me a reciever..dtv said they couldnt do that....

They can.  But they have rules for when they can and can't.  Essentially, if you're able to just replace an existing receiver with a Genie, meaning that you already have an SWM 8 tuner ready system and won't be going over the 8 tuner limit and don't want a tech to install the Genie, you may get them to drop ship it.

 

With anything else (need an installer, have a SWM-16, don't have SWM at all, don't have Whole Home, etc...) they will not drop ship to you.

My parents had a Genie installed today, HR44. The installer told them that they haven't had a 34 in months. They are in the Knoxville DMA (Crossville).

I had a HR44 installed at the end of July in York, PA. Three days ago we had a violent thunderstorm come through and the next morning the 44 would not power up. Called to get a replacement and the CSR thought with a storm blowing though it would be a good idea to send a tech out to make sure everything else was up to snuff... The tech was a "auth, Installer" and showed up with a HR34 with a replacement. The first guy that came with the 44 said that is all he has been installing and the second guy with the replacement said hes never seen a 44 in person yet.. so i guess (in my area atleast) it just depends on who Directv sends...

 

he also swapped out my C41 because he claims that they only work with the HR44.... reading posts here i personally know that is total bull but, as long as they all work i don't care whats feeding them...

$100 for a genie install? If so that's a great deal...I had to pony up the $49 install fee. I also got two clients included in total price.

Notes on the account requesting a HR44 are useless.... i have several techs tell me that they never see them and the CRS's just say that to make you feel warm and fuzzy during the call....

I just called directv and ordered an upgrade to a genie. I live in Los Angeles, CA. West LA, 90025, near UCLA, to be exact.

Installation is scheduled for 8/16/13 in the morning. I plan to ask the installer what is in his truck, and reschedule if they don't have an HR44.


It seems the Westside of LA is out of HR44.

My installation was on Friday, and my installer had an HR34 in the truck so I rescheduled for Sept 14. I actually spoke with the office instead of the field tech, and I didn't remember to ask when the HR44s might be in or if they ran out or whatever. I have the office number, so I will call them back and see what they can tell me about HR44.

However, earlier Friday morning, I ran into another DirecTV installer crew about 3 miles away. I asked if they had HR44s for their customers today, and he said that their warehouse was completely out of HR44s. I don't know if that crew was from the same company as the crew that was going to do my installation.

Anyway, take my data point for what it's worth, but no HR44 in the warehouse of one or more installation companies serving the westside of LA. 90024 and 90025.

Do I have to enter this into the google form, or will the OP take my post and enter the data?

Just had HR44 plus one Client installed this morning in Franklin(Nashville), Tennessee.  

 

I did not get the new remotes.  Can I call and have the new remotes sent to me from DirecTV?

You do not want the new remotes anyway. Trust me you will change back to the old ones quickly. Im sure directv will send you some if you want them though. Give them a call asap.

And I disagree, the new remote is great for me, love the new volume button.  While short on a couple things, the loss of the stop button and format buttons have not affected me, as I never used them anyway.  And since its supposed to come with the remote, and everyone has different preferences, he should get the right remote as well

To stop a playing recording with the new RC71 remote you can press the Guide button and go to another channel, Press the Exit button and it will exit the recording or press the Pause button and it will stop the recording. Next time you press the List button you will have the option to Resume or Start Over.

But see I never use the stop button while watching something, never have. Heck, I have never used it for anything.

If I'm at the end of the program I just skip to the end and delete the show. If I'm in the middle, I almost always have just hit pause, and then go into the guide or list to chose something else, or just turn the unit off.

Sometimes I'll simply pull up the guide or list and chose something else to watch.

And of course I'll also just hit exit sometime. I have just never needed or used the stop button. Generally I use pause so that I can then go into other things and not see live TV, so I won't accidentally see a score of a sports game I might be recording and haven't watched yet. I trained myself to do that a long time ago.

With that said, I see no reason they can't make the red button work like stop while watching live TV?

I had a new install done last week in the Palm Springs CA area and they gave me a HR44. The installer had both 34 and 44 on the truck and gave me my choice.

My boss just got a HR-44 installed last night in Crown Point, IN. He's a long time customer and loves it and the new genie clients.

 

I think my aunt and uncle got one installed last week in Indio, CA (near Palm Springs). Can't confirm, but she said it was the small one so I'm betting on it.

Having a HR-34 installed right now, in the Pottstown, Pa area. The installer said that they have the 44s in the King of Prussia office, but that it will be another month or so before they get them out here.

Hah... he kind of smiled when he drove up and I asked which receiver he had. I suspect if you don't ask they will give you a 34 to get rid of them.
