    I've never signed any agreement with DirecTV, outside of account programming. However, I don't disclose anything that says proprietary or confidential like the document he's referring to unless it is already common knowledge (I would know about it just by reading this forum) because it just isn't right to do. I find it funny he created an account just to post that though, especially to make such a claim as coming soon.

    On to topic, as a tech wireless RVU would scare me. I'd be concerned that it would once again increase the number of potential problems in the system, as well as be an excuse to pay the techs less.

    As a customer, I love the idea. Rearrange the living room or move it from one bedroom to another and not have to worry about running another jack or having a cable across the floor. If they could get a wireless client powered off the TV's USB port, even better!

    FWIW:

    There was firmware for the HR44-700 in the download stream in the early morning hours of 10/13/2012. At least one is being tested.

    will only use wifi as a last resort for computers, including laptops. Went a little overboard on the wireing plant when my house was remodeled and added to - full Cat 6E, directv outlets to all rooms with a central wiring cabinet. Only thing that uses wifi is the tablets and the smartphones

    As of 11-2 there is software spooling for an HR44-500 in addition to the HR44-700. Hmmmmm.

    Humax for the -500 and Pace for the -700

    I can tell you that the firmware monitor has something called an HR44... that's about the extent of public knowledge.

    I agree totally with this statement. I got a HR-34 a few weeks ago to replace my HR-24 and the 34 is slower in changing channels to the point it is irritating. Also RF does not work any better either. Not excited about this purchase at all. I was under the impression that in this age of advanced electronics that we were supposed to progress with each upgrade, not regress. Let's concentrate more on getting the current product working properly before going to the next. IMHO

    My installer said same thing, he didn't mention HR44, yet eluded to a wireless unit coming out and c31's will be replaced next year with c35's.... So you hearing that from an installer, plus me, i believe it. I'm having so many issues with my HR34 im ready to toss it off a roof. He also mentioned we are beta testers for the "Genie", they have there own dedicated department for the "Genie"... almost was like he was trying to talk me out of switching from my HR24. On many fronts i should have listened.

    Wireless is the connection from the router to the receiver no longer requiring a BBDeca or Wireless Deca.

    I think someone had said it was a three tuner box.

    I did hear that...from this site.
    I can't picture D* going back in features...my speculation (besides wireless which this pretty much confirms) is if an HR34 will stream to three TVs perhaps an HR44 will stream to four?
    Although we'll probably have a pretty good idea exactly what the HR44/C35 combo do come CES2013!

    Edit: not to say the info on this site is bad, half of the time the reason I know things before anyone else is DBStalk. A couple of weeks ago (month?) I mentioned the HR44 to someone due to it being on the firmware tracker and was scoffed at. A couple of days later "So yeah that HR44? You were right" :lol:

    One thing I can pretty much guarantee, whatever the 44 is, we'll have a first look with pictures before you can actually get one. If history is any indication.
