    According to the block diagram of the HR44-500 submission by Humax, the CPU is a BCM7346. That's about 6000 DMIPS performance.


    https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/repo...Frame=N&application_id=667173&fcc_id='O6ZHR44

    Not sure about the HR44-700 or HR44-200, but all containing the HR44 designation, they should all be designed with the equivalent level of performance.

    How does that compare to the HR34?

    Much better. The BCM7346 was released in 2011. The HR34 processor is from 2009-2010 (not sure of the part #, never confirmed).

    it would be easy for these who are using external drive, just use Linux and read system logs ...

    I'm jealous. I'm thinking that, shortly after the national rollout, I'm going to have to start looking for DirecTV vans, so I can ask the installers whether they are installing the HR-44 yet.

    Install two of them today, box is fast. No lag whatsoever. We are installing them with the C41s, the non wifi version. Looks just like the 31s. One of the installs I used the build it wifi deca, no problems there either.

    How does this compare to the new Dish Hopper with Sling's chipset?

    I live in Chandler, AZ (south suburb of Phoenix) and have a "genie" install scheduled for Monday 3/25. Any chance that will be a HR44?? If not can I cancel and request one specifically??

    Depends if they still have 34s in stock and if Phoenix is a test market.

    Just tried to swap my 34 for a 44. No dice. I was told it is very limited.

    We got ours in Raleigh yesterday, installed my first HR44/C41's today.

    That remote, dawg gone, all the important buttons are missing.

    Format(I finnally figgered that out), TV input(used the TV remote), had to use the box to program the TV to the remote(dont like that), its gonna be a slow learning curve.

    You can still use one of the old remotes with both boxes, just only in IR mode, not RF.

    Thank you for reminding me but I'm pretty sure DirecTv would be disappointed if the customer didn't get an RC71. The boxes pretty much begg to be setup in DirecTv's new RF standard. Since the customer was in the process of moving I only had a 70" Sharp to work with. I used a splitter and multipule HDMI inputs to connect everything at the same time. I set the HR44 to RF and started on the first C41 thinking I was good to go with a different remote. OOPS! I can bear witness to the fact that an HR44 does both RF/IR at the same time. So do the clients. Sigh.

    TV Input should be the Enter button.

    Something else that was interesting. The HR44 was on HDMI2, the C41's on 3 and 4. The TV renamed HDMI 2 to something I don't remember, 3 and 4 were renamed to C41-700. I havn't ever seen that before.
