    A genie is a genie but during the 1st initial phase for the markets in the "beta" a genie will be an HR44

    I think modesto is served by Sacramento. Fresno stops serving at Atwater I believe, not sure to be honest but try and call.

    So are you guys ordering/paying for the HR44 from an online vendor or calling DTV and asking in to help beta test?

    The HR44s are currently only available in 10 test markets. When you order a "Genie" in these markets, you get an HR44. There's a special customer-support team set up to handle all HR44 calls. You are given a special phone number and PIN.

    Understood. I'm 20-25 minutes outside of StL, so assume I'd be in the market.

    You can add eSATA HDD to these ala HR24's still, right? 2-3GB?

    :eek2: I've got 3 x HR24's, including one with 2TB eSATA.

    I'd be happy to lose one of the HR24's if I could get hold of an HR44. I think with that recording capability, I'd like at least another 2GB eSATA HDD on the Genie, but 9TB? Wowser. Not without some serious ability to filter/search first!

    Speaking from experience here... Yes, with that much space the playlist does get rather long. :D

    Already ran into 2 issues. Menu cuts off on either side slightly on tv. Also directv2pc app finds the genie, but is not showing the playlist. I recorded a few minutes of a movie to try it out, nothing on the list.

    Otherwise, I'm liking it so far. Much faster response than the 5.5 year old HR20
