    From past experience with the manufacturer's other HRs, they should all be good.

    I wonder which model Solid Signal will get, the 500 or the 700?

    Darn it I would have loved this unit, just when I have decided to say goodbye to DTV due to them taking away features just to add some that I never use. Mostly trick play in list/guide for that stupid remote control and the constant rising prices. This should help them to remain relevant for a few more years but video delivery is changing fast folks.

    Yep that's what I am talking bout when I started DTV I watched a lot of TV now with Internet it's amazing how little time I spend in front of my TV now and more and more online. Except local sports but I have a OTA antenna for most for that.

    I rarely watch Netflix because they don't update much on their movies or shows, I'm always thinking of canceling Netflix because of that, The only reason I don't is because there is a few good movies and documentaries I have saved up in my instant queue list.

    Does anyone know if the internal hard drive in the HR44s is a 2.5" or 3.5" sata?

    Stuart, or anyone else that might know for that matter, do you know if a "Third Look" for the HR44-200 might be coming anytime soon or is its development that far behind the others? Just curious... Not that there's much of a way to control it, but I've always liked the Samsung models.

    Before anyone derides me for that comment, yes I understand that they're all functionally equivalent. I've just got a house full of Samsung models..with one exception..that have been so problem free. It's in my head, I know, I know...

    +1 my 24-200 has always been working well, I'm definitely want to see a Samsung model for the 44

    I agree on the HR24-200. Mine has always been rock solid.

    We're getting D* installed this coming Sunday. We're five miles out of Des Moines. Anybody else get the HR44 in this area? I thought I saw the region on the list for the HR44s.
