    My failed HR-34 was just replaced this week with a HR-44. Tech said that is all they have on their trucks right now - Bend Oregon.

    Is there a website that lists the companies that do DirecTV installs by location? Any google maps plugins to show where all the DirecTV warehouses are?

    I received a call yesterday from my installer and scheduled my Genie upgrade. I asked if they were installing HR44s and she said yes. Install is scheduled for Monday. I'll report back once it is done to confirm. -- Flemington, NJ

    Just had a friend get directv in Floyd Knobs (louisville, ky) with multiband and still no HR44. I had him ask about the the hr44 and the installer knew about it but said they don't have any yet.

    Had a Genie install yesterday north of Knoxville, TN. Got an HR44-700 and C41-500 to replace 2 HR20's. Also moved HR24 to a bedroom. Everything was free under the protection plan upgrade. Very happy so far.

    They installed a HR44/500 at my house at Star Valley Ranch, WY yesterday. I returned a HR20-700 and still have two HR22-100s and one HR21-200. The installer told me the don't have any of the HR34s anymore.

    Today an installer came and installed an HR44. I'm in West LA. The installer was MJP. Last time the installer was "Isis". The installer said he had two in his truck today, but according to him those were the last two in the shop this morning.

    Also, yesterday I called the Isis dispatcher to ask if my installer would have an HR44. Of course she said they did not have my job, but she did confirm that as far as she knew her company had both 34s and 44s.

    I hope this helps someone. It sounds likes its time to jump on an install before they run out.

    It seems the Westside of LA is out of HR44. My installation was on Friday, and my installer had an HR34 in the truck so I rescheduled for Sept 14. I actually spoke with the office instead of the field tech, and I didn't remember to ask when the HR44s might be in or if they ran out or whatever. I have the office number, so I will call them back and see what they can tell me about HR44. However, earlier Friday morning, I ran into another DirecTV installer crew about 3 miles away. I asked if they had HR44s for their customers today, and he said that their warehouse was completely out of HR44s. I don't know if that crew was from the same company as the crew that was going to do my installation. Anyway, take my data point for what it's worth, but no HR44 in the warehouse of one or more installation companies serving the westside of LA. 90024 and 90025. Do I have to enter this into the google form, or will the OP take my post and enter the data?

    Just had an HR44 installed in Lincoln Park, NJ over the weekend. Installers said they had just got them in 2 days earlier. The one installer was teaching the other about the setup. Quite comical....

    Appt yesterday was cancelled because the tech did not have any HR44s yet. They said the warehouse has them but they won't be on the trucks until tomorrow so need to reschedule my appt. -- Flemington NJ

    Just had an HR44 installed yesterday as part of a service call (my HR34 had some issues). Tech said they just started rolling them out locally (Tacoma Wa). Worked out great for me!

    Called DirecTV Wednesday 9/18 from Manorville, Long Island NY for Genie upgrad., They drop shipped an HR-44 from PA that arrived yesterday. Swapped cables from the HR-20 it was replacing, ran the initial setup, activated the receiver over the automated phone system and everything is working perfectly. This unit is much faster than the HR-20 it was replacing.

    Quick question. I just ordered a Genie from DirecTV directly. They are shipping me the unit for a self install. What are the chances that I get an HR44?

    OK, that was meant to elicit a smile. No one knows for sure, but my pure guess is less than 50%....

    good luck!

    I have an install set for next Friday. How do I find out who my installer is, so I can call ahead to confirm HR-44?
