It seems there are major differences among the local regions. Some have nothing but 44's, others only 34's and some with both. 

"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

Yeah, I imagine even at this date it's still rather early in the roll out process for the HR44 with a lot of inventories mostly stocked with HR34s. So your only sure bet for now if you really want an HR44 is to purchase it from a third party re-seller like Solid Signal and try to get at least some credit back for it from DIRECTV.


I know it's much easier said than done (to quote the tired-old cliche), getting a credit from D* for this. But other than that, it's just going to be a classic case of "hurry up and wait." (to quote another old, but not as much as the first, cliche :) ).    

DIRECTV sub. since Sep. of '95
