4k ready? - DirecTV

Yesterday, while mentioning to a Direct Tv employee as to 4K programming, I was told I needed the H54 receiver to view 4K and it's $100 per unit. I'm having a problem with this because I upgraded to the H44, I believe, a little over a year ago because that's what they said I needed for 4K along with my already purchased Samsung 4K set. I'm a little frustrated that I dropped $200 (two units) for receivers that never offered the proper specs to run 4K and are now (apparently) useless for 4K.

Anyone else go through this as I went with what was recommended by them? I would have waited if I knew the genie wasn't ready yet because it's a year later and I'm still 4K-less.

This question, "4k ready?," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
