HR44-500 just installed in a motorhome in Port Townsend WA replacing an HR22.  Also converted Winegard Trav'ler RV system to SWM.  Super installer.

What is the model number of your Winegard dish?  Was the conversion a factory mod/aftermarket or was it provided by

a 3rd party supplier?


Approx. did the finished dish cost, parts and labor to get it to SWM?

Had an HR44-200 installed November 24 here in San Antonio.  Since I already had a hardwired switch at the install location done earlier to support MRV we didn't even consider wireless.  Tech did say that they'd been installing HR44s almost as fast as they were getting them in the shop.  He said they don't have and are not getting anymore HR34s though local contractors in the area have them.  Interestingly we almost had an issue with the SWM16 as he didn't have one and had called me to say he was going to be late as he had to meet up with another tech to get a SWM16 off his truck.  Luckily I had done a self-install of a SWM16 so that turned out not to be a problem so he kept the appointment time.  While he was here he entered the serial number of the SWM16 in their system so maybe we'll finally get that in my records after three or four previous tries by techs.

Had a tech out yesterday (Tuesday) to fix a a 775 error.  Replaced the power inserter and a bunch of connectors.  Asked him if they were carrying the 44s.  He said that was all they were installing and asked if I was eligible for an upgrade. I said yes.  He said let me call in and get it set up.  Unfortunatley, he got disconnected from DTV during the call.


I called last night and ordered the Genie.  They set up the appointment for this morning.  The tech was here by 9:00 and done by 9:30.  I already had 9 tuners so had the right switch. The install was just a matter of swapping out a box and putting the Genie on one side of the switch by itself.


This thing is lighning fast!  Best DVR I've ever had.  This should improve the WAF significantly.  I'm ready to toss all my 23s in the trash.


I took the CCK out and am using the one on board.  One less piece of hadware to plug in.

I had the Genie HR44 installed yesterday. The technician used my ethernet cable plugged straight into HR44. Yes, as tomski35 noted above, it is lightning fast, and I'm loving it as well.
