HR44 has PP that maybe nice during football season. The 5 tuners comes in a lot handier than I thought it would. You will still have the 2 year service commitment even when buying from Amazon, unless you are wanting to be sure and get the HR44 and like doing your on install I do not see much advantage to purchasing from Amazon. D* has had pretty good deals on Genies and installs lately, quiet a few are free.
I used to have PiP on my tv (directv as one input and over-the-air antenna as the other) and it was ok but a bit distracting.
At the time of my first post Amazon had the HR44 for $279.99 with free shipping but after they sold those the new price is around $295. I waited a few days too long.
What do the numbers after the HR44 mean? (HR44-200, HR44-600, etc). Different manufacturers?
The 2 year commitment doesn't bother me. I was among the first customers when they began service (not sure what year that was) and I'm certainly not ever going back to cable.
