    To stop a playing recording with the new RC71 remote you can press the Guide button and go to another channel, Press the Exit button and it will exit the recording or press the Pause button and it will stop the recording. Next time you press the List button you will have the option to Resume or Start Over.

    But see I never use the stop button while watching something, never have. Heck, I have never used it for anything.

    If I'm at the end of the program I just skip to the end and delete the show. If I'm in the middle, I almost always have just hit pause, and then go into the guide or list to chose something else, or just turn the unit off.

    Sometimes I'll simply pull up the guide or list and chose something else to watch.

    And of course I'll also just hit exit sometime. I have just never needed or used the stop button. Generally I use pause so that I can then go into other things and not see live TV, so I won't accidentally see a score of a sports game I might be recording and haven't watched yet. I trained myself to do that a long time ago.

    With that said, I see no reason they can't make the red button work like stop while watching live TV?

    I had a new install done last week in the Palm Springs CA area and they gave me a HR44. The installer had both 34 and 44 on the truck and gave me my choice.

    My boss just got a HR-44 installed last night in Crown Point, IN. He's a long time customer and loves it and the new genie clients.

    I think my aunt and uncle got one installed last week in Indio, CA (near Palm Springs). Can't confirm, but she said it was the small one so I'm betting on it.

    Having a HR-34 installed right now, in the Pottstown, Pa area. The installer said that they have the 44s in the King of Prussia office, but that it will be another month or so before they get them out here.

    Hah... he kind of smiled when he drove up and I asked which receiver he had. I suspect if you don't ask they will give you a 34 to get rid of them.

    DirecTV does not guarantee receiver models. It's clearly stated on their website. The only sure way of getting the model receiver you want is by purchasing from Solid Signal or WeaKnees.

    Thank you for this report. I am in Louisville area (Prospect) and definately served by Multiband based on previous truck rolls. I am patiently waiting for a report that HR44s are here and this seems to confirm not yet.

    Madison, WI.

    Called Directv last week for a Genie upgrade. I'm replacing 3 HR2x DVRs with 1 Genie and 2 clients.
    The phone rep offered a free setup if the units were shipped to me for a self-install or I could schedule a tech install for $49. I chose the tech install to increase chances of getting a HR44 genie.

    Install was scheduled for today, but the tech just called and said he only has HR34s. I cancelled the appointment, but he gave me his cell number so I can check back with him in a few weeks.

    [EDIT] Tech just called back. After speaking with his supervisor suggested that since I'm interested in the latest and greatest unit that maybe I should wait for "the next Genie model not even in production yet: The HR44W".

    Finally had my parent's install on Saturday 8/24/2013 in Rock Falls, IL 61071. Multiband installer showed up with HR44 and three C41 clients. He hasn't seen any of the C41W yet though, but has been trained on them.

    Hardest part was getting the two Samsung RVU TVs added to the account after the installer left. The CSR on the phone had never added one that wasn't tech installed so it took him a while to figure it out.
