Nice, good to hear another one in the south FL market getting one. Have an install coming tomorrow (Boynton Beach, FL), and the request for a HR44 so hopefully I'll get that.

I hate you.   When I saw that the last post was from somebody with a Yankees logo as their avatar, I got excited thinking that someone who lives in the NY metropolitan area had finally received an HR-44.  Then I read your disappointing post saying that you live in Florida.

Haha, love the Extra Innings package for that reason. And hopefully, no more conflicts soon when games are on.

Nope, not yet in the NY market
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

So, why doesn't everyone just go here and actually call installers in their area? :

Because those aren't the installers that DirecTV uses when you get equipment through them.  A small retailer, who may only stock 5 Genies at a time, may already be getting HR44's while Mastec, who likely has hundreds, won't be getting them until current inventory runs out.  I've never had any success in finding a number for Mastec on Long Island, where I could get any information.

Bill that is the market I work in, and there is no indication of 44s yet

Thanks.  Although I know that you will do so even without me asking, please let us know when you being seeing them.

 

I've been holding off on scheduling a realignment (I lose 103 almost instantly when it rains, which was probably caused by Hurricane Sandy), figuring that it can wait until I get an HR-44.  So, I want to place that order as soon as they are available locally.

Installer stopped by and has HR44 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I had a schedule conflict, so I had to reschedule for next weekend. I offered him a cold beverage for his troubles, and I hope he comes back as he was a good guy.

 

I'll report back next weekend once we're up and running.

Got my HR44 installed yesterday with a c41 client (with a SWM-16). Like stvjohnsn said, the installer said they've been installing them for the last month and half or so.

For those that didn't get one when you confirmed, what'd you do (cancel the install, reschedule, etc.)?

Don't count on it.   I got a replacement Genie in very late May in Coral Gables, FL and it was an HR-34.   It is acting up in the past few days and after several phone calls it was escalated to the Case Management group who is supposedly sending out a tech with "more experience" to check things out Monday morning and, if necessary, replace the unit.   I really do think I got a bad one as it started shuddering on playback, not only on other TV's on the network, but even when it is played on the genie.  I also recorded a particular program on the genie AND on the HR-24 in the living room and the recording from the HR-24 was perfect while the one from the genie was unwatchable.   I really didn't want to take a morning off from work especially when they couldn't assure me they would get here early enough to let me get to work in the afternoon, when I simply must be there, but they wouldn't send me one to self install, so I guess I am stuck.  I just want it fixed or replaced, so I am going to be sitting around Monday morning and I will let you know if Mas Tec in Miami-Dade has 34's or 44's.   I haven't actually "demanded" a 44 because all I really care is that it works and does what it is supposed to do, but I think, with two bad 34's in a row, I would welcome a change, just in case it makes a difference.

That's correct, my installer is not on the list, mostly TV shops, etc. My installer is Ironwood and I got their national number through Google. Mastec is in Florida, if you call them they can probably tell you about Long Island. I have used Ironwood's national HQ to set up a local installation when I wanted to move my installation to an earlier date.

Add San Diego, South County. My brother doesn't post here but he said he ordered an upgrade last week and they brought him a 44 with two C41s. We're outside Madison so I'm still waiting a while or I'm going to turn to Solid Signal. His install was $99 for the upgrade plus $49 for the install.

List is getting short….FMC HD, ID HD, Sundance HD, and Encore HD Channels.

I still think it could be helpful to see if *anyone* in a certain area was receiving them . I found a Mom & Pop guy that had them locally and felt encouraged.  Unless you tell me that it's a completely different network, retailer vs. installer, which in that case would mean no correlation.

Do you have a number for Ironwood?  Are they national?

I spoke with an installer today when he came to install my free upgrade on my only non-DVR receiver. He said that they have only HR44 genies. This is in the Little Rock area. I'm not going to update the map since I didn't get one installed (I got one through WeaKnees). What was interesting was that when I asked him what DVR he brought he said an HR24 & that it was the first one of them he'd seen in a few weeks - they'd had HR21s up until today. Glad I was the lucky one.
