    Did he give any indication of shipping times?

    I do know that VE shipped the HR10's a week before anyone else. SolidSignal and someone else were second and then everyone else.

    Here's a quote from an email I received from Robert this morning regarding the shipment of HR34s...

    "...We ship from 21 fulfillment locations across America and most branches are expecting the HR34 today and as they arrive the orders will ship. Your hR34 should ship form the Ontario warehouse.

    So I can't be 100% sure your order will ship today as it might go tomorrow.

    Best,

    -Robert..."

    So the HR34 is officially available today, I am wondering if anyone had one installed yet, or has an appointment scheduled and think they will get one.

    I am about to move, am currently out of contract with DirecTV and trying to think of the best way to get the new house wired up as cleanly as possible.

    I currently have 3 HR2x-x00 HD DVR's with whole home DVR service (although im doing it over my lan at my current house). If I used DTV's mover service, what could I expect them to install at the new house?

    Would it be worthwhile to add a 4th receiver / 7th tuner to my account before I move so I can at least get a SWM setup?

    What are the minimum requirements for getting a HR34? What regions will they be available in first?

    VE has 21 warehouses scattered across the nation, and they don't know which ones received the HR34 today.

    PS. Mine will come from Syracuse.

    Thx, saw this thread after my post. Looks like the HR34 won't be available in the DC region yet anyhow.

    Yes you heard it right. I just got off the phone with Directv executive and as of today the HR 34 is only available for new customers. I'm pissed off ! Michael White CEO made this decision :mad: I have been with them since 1999 and have 100k theater system. Explain to me the logic on a average new subscriber in need of 5 TV capability? Boycott DTV!

    You can order one from other online retailers, too bad you didn't look before posting this. I will merge this with the HR34 Anticipation Thread and you can find out where to get one.

    Now if you had a "110K theater system" you might have gotten one. Seriously though, it has nothing to do with "5 TV capability" just because it has 5 tuners. It works just fine with 2 TV's and a 0.25K theater system as well. ;)

    Were you a Beta tester? I'm not making this up. They said next year for existing customers unless I suppose you want to pay $399 for one now and box up your Hr24 500 in my case and flush the money you spent for it.

    That's the same price D* charges as the list price for existing subs.
