DIRECTV Genie HR44 DVR

Posted on May 3rd, 2013, by Michael

We have preliminary information about the second generation DIRECTV Genie – the HR44. It’s not out yet, but it does sound like a nice evolution of the Genie server.

Here’s the front of the unit:

directv-hr44-500

 

And here’s the back:

directv-hr44-back-500

Here are the main differences:

  • Significantly smaller
  • Built in Wifi adapter
  • External power adapter – fewer unit failures this way, and the power supply alone can be replaced if that’s the only problem
  • Ships with the new RC71 remote
  • Faster processor
  • Digital audio out via Toslink and Coax ports

We hope to have them in stock the day they ship!
