    I have an install set for Tuesday afternoon. See if they bring the 44 or the 34. Crossing my fingers and really hoping for the 44. I'm in the Sioux Falls, SD area.

    My HR21 was messing up so when I called for a replacement the CSR asked if I was interested in replacing it with a Genie. I said sure if I get a good deal. He offered a Genie and a Client to replace both DVRs. I told him I did not want client and would keep my HR 24. He shot me $99 + $49 for installation. I asked why I needed installation and after checking he said I really didn't if I was comfortable doing it my self. So the deal was $99 and a $10/month service credit for 12 months. I thought that was a fair deal for a new 24 month contract since I wasn't going anywhere anyway. My only options are D and E and E isn't an option until they get HD locals in my market.

    I was fully expecting a HR34 to show up and was pleasantly surprised when a HR44 arrived. I took the power cord off the HR 21 to power the AM21. No problems for the first couple of days. I have to say I am not wild about the funky Genie remote (Vol and Ch), but overall it is a pretty impressive box. I am in Texas.

    You can still use the previous remotes in IR mode while using the RF new remote in RF mode at the same time with this Hr44. Havent been able to do that in the past. That way you can keep RF remote in other rooms and IR remote in room that HR44 is located and they will both work

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I got an HR44 installed in Southern NH last week. I was told that they weren’t installing them yet, but since I was requesting one and they had a person visiting that had HR44 training, they would do it (or something like that). So not sure if it is helpful to add Southern NH into the map (Windham, NH), but it is an interesting reference point.

    Round Rock,...
    MasTec installed HR44 with C41 and new RF remotes on both in the Austin DMA.

    Tech said they have nothing by HR44s and C41 now, so if you are in the Austin area, it is time to upgrade! :righton: :grin:

    No love in the Boston area yet.... Tried 2 weeks ago, installers hadn't heard of HR44. Tried this past weekend, no supply again. Spoke to regional install office, they thought maybe in next 1-4 weeks they may get some. They suggested I convince directv to ship one to guarantee I get one soon. Tried that route but Directv claims they have no control over which model would be sent. Added frustration not being able to get number of local installation team so I can periodically check on supply. In the end, hope it's worth it!

    My sister, also in Memphis, got an HR44 installed today. The install was to replace an HR24 that was dead, replace an H25 with the Genie, & upgrade to a SWiM16. The installer showed up at 8AM. He is STILL there. He can't get the Whole Home to work. It was working this morning before the install but not since.

    I have an HR44 install scheduled for Monday (July 1). Stillwater, OK (OKC area) I've been in contact with a local installer. I could have had it done a few weeks ago, but he wasn't able to get the C41 clients in until this week, and I was willing to wait for them to get the RF remotes for free. I'll add to the survey document as soon as I physically have the HR44 in my living room.

    SF Bay Area
    Canceled install in SF Bay Area (South Bay) today. Installer said they haven't gotten HR44s in the warehouse yet. I talked to his supervisor too, and he has not seen any HR44s deployed.

    There are a few confirmed votes in the SF Bay Area. How did you guys get HR44s?

    Here in Baltimore I saw a directv truck up the street so I went up to talk to the guy, I asked him if he had anyHD44s on the truck and he let out a big laugh and said he didn't have them yet but they might come in by the end of June or the early part of July, that's what they told him at work. He was a pretty nice guy and said he has one at home and it is the best ever. They get them to test And work with a little early. So I hope he has the right dope on this. I'll be calling pretty soon I guess.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I got mine. It is amazingly fast. Much faster than my HR24-500. Of course i don't have any recordings on it yet so I will have to see how things go when its recording 2 or 3 things at once

    The installer is on the way to my house in Palm Beach County, Florida....verified that he's bringing an HR44 and said he hasn't seen an HR34 down here in "a couple of months".

    Nice, good to hear another one in the south FL market getting one. Have an install coming tomorrow (Boynton Beach, FL), and the request for a HR44 so hopefully I'll get that.

    For those that didn't get one when you confirmed, what'd you do (cancel the install, reschedule, etc.)?
