    It appears that Solid Signal is now listing the HR44 on their website. It is listed as a pre-release item. While they are not taking orders, you can get added to their auto-notification list for when it becomes available. Good sign that it should be available soon. No price is listed for it as of yet, but I would assume that it will be selling for the same price as the HR34, which is currently listed at $349.

    Just got off the phone with D* customer service, nice guy. Asked about the HR-44 and he informed me that it would not be available until May or June.:)

    I'm betting two things: earlier than that, and he can't narrow it down any further for us.

    Is Solid Signal going to cancel all the ore orders like they did last time?

    I shopped with them once and since then they continue to spam me like I want to buy a new receiver every week.

    After they canceled my pre order last time I vowed never to order from them again.

    I preordered my HR34 with them, had no issues other than it took longer than expected.

    BTW, welcome, whether you're THE Ed Bott or just one of us :)

    The only official information that we have received is that the HR44 will be available for new installs in March.

    Hi Ed,

    I'm sorry there was a mixup with the C31 pre-orders, I'm guessing that's what you were referring to. There were communication problems and that's part of why we overhauled our whole pre-order system. What you see on our site is a pre-release list, meaning we will contact you when we are 100% ready for pre-orders. This means there won't be a problem like there was last time.

    no pre-orders at Solid signal, just email addresses to let you know when they are available.

    I have used SS on several occasions and am very happy with their service. As to the spamming, you can opt to or NOT TO receive their promotional emails.

    Hi I have the HR34 and like to keep up with all the new thing. I am not using the genie home media. When the HR44 comes out can I just buy and switch out the units.At this time I have hooked up 3 HR24 and 1 HR21 and the HR34.

    I like their promotional emails. They are one of the few sales sites that I don't have blocked. Very informative.

    I was told that it was being trickled out starting the 7th. I really like it for the compactness. Makes it look really sleek parked next to anything else. Since I apparently can't have both a 34 and a 44 on the same account I'm seriously thinking of switching over when they become more widely available. Also the hr34 puts off a fair amount of heat. The little monster's cat likes to crawl up on top of it to enjoy the warmth - if she's not noticed and the entertainment center glass door are closed it rapidly becomes 'way too hot for her. I like the idea of the cooler running 44 for that reason as well.
