    HR44-700 installed on Friday (9/27) in Louisville, KY

    C41 Wireless clients still not available. The tech said they have them in their shop, and they need to be pretty darn close to the AP to work well.

    Speaking of the tech was great, knowledgeble, and overall friendly to talk with. Took good care of us.

    Did upsell us on the warranty, but indicated it covered accidnets, which it does not seem to in fact cover.

    Protection Plan does indeed cover accidents.

    I hope you are right, but according to the T&C it doesn't. At least for TV's. Hypothetically speaking, moving a TV from one wall to another, and damaging it somehow, for instance. Doesn't look like that would be protected.

    At any rate, the HR44-700 is the bomb!! Love it.

    Safe to say the HR-44 is being installed everywhere now?

    Probably not. One is still not guaranteed one will get the slightly faster Genie.

    Currently getting a Genie HR44-700 model installed in Prospect, KY -- just outside of Louisville/Jefferson Co. KY. I'm glad my patience has paid off in getting a 44 vs. 34. Especially since Multiband blew me off last weekend due to a technician calling in sick, after I waited at home on a Saturday for my window. But that got me free Red Zone Channel and $20/mo for 1 yr. for my trouble.

    That's sort of funny. You haven't been around long. I might have installed my last H20....last year, I'm not holding my breath though. It was a refurb. When you started this thread all I had on my truck were HR44/C41/C41W's/. Right now! If we walked outside and looked we would find HR34's/HR23's/H25's/R22's and D12's all refurbs. There might even be a refurbed C31.

    You drifting with me cuz!

    Nope. with the HR44-200 issue, DirecTV is sending either other 44s or 34s for those that can't be hard wired

    You speak of "the -200" issue as if it were gospel. I had no problems with mine when I had it connected via WiFi.

    Consider yourself lucky, my performance matrix is littered with failures.

    I just had a HR44-500 installed in the Chicago burbs. I asked the tech if he was installing HR34's. He said yes, but had in his notes from D* that I requested a HR44 and a HR24.

    HR34 will be installed new or more likely refurbished for the next five years or so. And that could be in any market.

    What's the -200 issue? Maybe software will fix issues over time, or is this a hardware flaw?
