My Birthday could be a big day.
Well if the Feb 7th date is true, thats close enough for me to push my date back for the install...even more...since I've been riding the fence on to stay with UVerse or go D*, this might be a good reason to wait a bit and see if those are coming out then?
The problem is that it does not work that way. The only way you'll know a 44 is definitely on the way is to order it yourself.
I think Solid Signal has worked with other installers in the past, where they send you the equipment and set up with a local installer to do the install. However they had to charge full price to ship, then refund it once activated.
Right. So I would basically have to cancel my order with DirecTV on the 7th if it does come out on SS web site, then order from them, pay for it, then have it refunded after activation? Would I get the same deal for the service that D* has me setup with now? Or am I confusing it all together? I mean D* gave me the whole Genie deal free, etc...so I don't think I want to lose those discounts.
I think it'll be very hard to get D* to reimburse you for an HR44 that you buy from somewhere else.
But if he can work through Signal Installs and a local installer, new customer deals should apply. They do when you go directly through SS.
They haven't even done a "First Look"on the C41 yet and both it and the HR44 are going to be available to the public in only 11 days?
Certainly not complaining mind you, but sorta hard to believe.
Yeah thats not what I was asking, or not what I meant to ask. I think I'm just confused. Nevermind my question, I'll just stick with my install and see what I get...lol...unless I can find a local friend who is an installer and can help me find out when they'll have some in their possession.
But how does one do this? I don't know any local installers? Would SS have a list of them in my area they work with etc?
I've heard of them doing it in the past. You might want to talk to them and see if they still do that.
Just watching this video, near the end where they compare the menu surfing, it looks a lot faster...
My HR34 is not that slow. I can just about page as fast as the HR44. I'd take another HR34 anytime they want to give me one to replace my 2 HR21s.
For me, I find that I rarely use the guide myself. Of course I also have a much smaller guide than what they are showing. Less than 10 button presses and I've gone through all the channels. I likely could pare it down further. It takes about a second to page down a page if I don't actually want to read anything.
Wasn't the HR34 let out Feb. 9th last year??
Ah, so the launch date is May First, then!
This is how rumors get started. I've bookmarked the page at Solid Signal, and will also be watching for e-mails from them.
How much do you think it will cost? Do you think Solid Signal is the best route to go about getting one?
I am guessing $400, and yes, Solid Signal is the place to go as far as I know.
I would love such a unit! But overall I am happy with the gear that I have.
I thought the article said it would be 1/3 the cost of the current Genie? I'm hoping $249/299.
I believe that price was referring to the cost of building the things - which has no relationship to what they charge for it!
So, what's the plan? Do they even have one? If they do away with the 2 tuner DVRs I'd need at least 8 of the Genies to feed my 8 plasmas and a non-DVR receiver isn't gonna make anyone in my family happy. Does their plan include, "How do I back up my content?"? (Did I use that second question mark correctly?)
Which brings me to my second question: Why only one on an account?
