    Would the person who can edit the google doc please remove the last addition of an install in Tucson? I screwed it up. I thought I was selecting the city to display, but it was adding an install. Sorry about that. Although, I'm hoping to receive an HR44 tomorrow for self install. :grin:

    Just got an upgrade to the Genie today after many attempts! I am in the Portland, OR area and wondering if anyone has gotten an HR44 recently in this area?

    Got an install here just a couple of days ago in Houston, TX. Sugar Land to be precise. The company was Multiband and the installer stated they've been installing only HR44's for about a month or two.

    So far everything working well. It's an HR44-500 and the C41-700 along with it. Just in case anyone cares which manufacturer made the boxes they are installing in this area. At least from Multiband.

    Unfortunately, I got a hr-34 this weekend in central Ohio. The contractor doing the mover's install was from a company called ICS. He said he's not seen a HR-44 yet.

    He also freaked out when he saw my am-21. He didn't know there was such a product.

    While not product knowledgable, he did do a good job on the install. Specifically working through a difficult dish placement ( in the rain too ).

    I've been told he-44s are in the area, but only from retailers that are restricted to new customer and commercial installs.

    Multiband installed a HR44 and (2) C41s yesterday in northern Cincinnati and a friend of mine got the same thing on east side last week ask well. Installer said all they do now is HR44s.

    San Jose? Anyone? I know the poll says they have installs, but installers say they haven't seen it yet.

    Tried in the Boston area last Saturday for the HR44 - no luck. Guess third time isn't a charm in this case.

    I'm hoping it shouldn't be much longer. The installer here (SE VA) told me we should see them here during the 1st week of August. If I get one on the 8th, I'll tell them to head up your way.

    HR44 500 delivered and then taken away (because tech did not have correct mounting bracket for roof) in New Braunfels, TX. This is between San Antonio and Austin.

    Tech said that they only have the HR 44.

    +1 +1 +1....no grain of salt taken there...I believe that 110%...the 34 is a piece of crap that should have never been released...and there is independent corroboration from somebody other than me. at some point the only 34's remaining will be the ones they have left in stock to replace the ones that people haven't gotten rid of and are still using and continue putting up with its glitches and missing functionality.

    theres more proof....before when D would do HR21 HR22 HR23 and HR24...it was a crap shoot as to what you would get....installers would have all of them available...now they have genies that are HR34 and HR44..and according to many on this forum they are almost equivalent in performance...yet, installers in all these and many more areas ONLY have HR44s...wheres the great HR34? eventually, they will all be on scrap heaps, and I will volunteer to drive the tractor over them to mash them up into little bits. cant wait to get my 44 and start using it.

    Eventually all HD DVR's end up on scrap heaps. Same can be said for the HR44. They all fall victim to technological advancement. You had "isolated" issues with your HR34. If you take the time to check you'll see people are experiencing "isolated" issues with their HR44s. Time to get over your negative experience with "your" HR34 and stop posting as if all HR34's have the same issues as your's. They don't!

    @uscmatty, can you tell us the name of the installation company and their phone number? I'd want to call and see if they only have HR44s, and what areas they cover.

    I'm in WestLA, so it might not apply to me, but I'd still like to check. Thank you!
