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.


I would take that with a grain of salt....

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

If you buy from Weakness, etc and have an old non-swim system, will DTV swap out the dish, etc?

Yes, but there might be a fee. YMMV

My brother in Memphis just got an HR44 installed.  That's all the installer had for genies.  However, he did NOT get a remote.  There was not one in the box & the installer told my brother that the remotes had problems & have to be fixed.  Has anyone else heard that?

I just got my Genie upgrade today. It was an HR44-700! I went ahead and scheduled my upgrade when Direct installed a Genie at my neighbors house across the street last week and she also got a 44. The installer today told me that they have had all 44's here for about a month now.

I did get one of the new remotes with my 44 I got today. It was not in the box, the installer went and got it from a seperate box in his truck. Remote is working much better than my previous RF remote thus far.

I had the HDD on my DVR go bad last Saturday.and CS asked if I wanted to change out the 2 DVR's and 2 set tops with the Genie system for no charge. Sure I said & requested the HR44. When the installer (contractor) came out the next Day. He did a thorough and fast job with the install checking all the existing equipment and p/u all the old equipment. He brought a HR44-500 and C41-700's. He said that was all they were installing now in this area (30 miles north of San Diego)
