I wonder if DTV will even have an official HR44 release announcement?

They should announce it like they did the Hopper/Sling but call it the Small Genie or Genie's baby brother :)

Actually got mine the last week of May.  Live a little more than an hour east of Knoxville, TN (Greeneville).  For some weird reason, I did not see my town of approx 15,000 listed as one of the selection options in the survey. ;)

That is weird - I just copypasted a list of top cities I found someplace. Either way I just updated Greenville as well as the Google map.

Thanks for everyone's responses!!

 

I must admit it seems weird that it's still so hit-or-miss. I don't know how the relationship between regional installers and DTV works, but it looks like some installers have a much larger glut of HR34's to burn through before they get to the HR44's.

2) The Ethernet port work as a bridge so I now have internet for my ROKU box.

3) This sucker is FAST !!!!!

 

Now have 2 HR21's and a HR44 (9 recordings at once) Insane 


SETUP:
HR21-200 
HR21-700 

HR44-500
SWM-16
SLIMLINE DISH

Just got HR44 installed in Grand Rapids, Michigan.   Multiband is the provider as others have mentioned, and the tech told me that they have no HR34's at all.   So, all of Michigan should be good for HR44s.


Setup

  • Slimline Dish connected to SWM-16
  • Whole home DVR with DECA
  • HR44-500 connected via HDMI to 70" Vizio 4K P702ui-B3
  • HR24-500 connected via HDMI to 42" LG LCD
  • HR24-500 connected via HDMI to 39" Samsung
  • Apple Airport Extreme
  • 30/5 Charter Cable

Just had an HR44-500 installed today in Colorado Springs, replacing an HR34. Had a complete install as part of the Movers Connection. Installer asked if we wanted the 34 replaced....had to think about it for all of less than a second.


Few notes:

Installer stated DTV is working on an eight tuner super Genie.

Installer stated that a 16 tuner LNB is also in the works, eliminating the need for a SWM16 module.

Installer stated HR34s aren't being refurbished... just scrapped. Reason is that DTV rushed the 34 into production, due to the Hopper's expected release, as a stopgap measure while the 44s were worked on.

congrats on the 44!

 

That all sounds great. I'm guessing that installer lives in a Holiday Inn...

had he not mentioned the part where he said that HR34 were being scrapped, this would be more believable

Just got an HR34 installed in the SF East Bay area.  Tech said they hadn't even had the chance to play with a 44 yet, not even the remote.  He was the supervisor too.  I decided to just go with the 34 because I don't want to wait any longer, been rolling with an HR21 way too long
