how do I connect am21 to a hr44

I just got a HR44 today and don't see how to connect the power to the unit. On my HR21 it came through the AM21. The HR44 does not have the same type of power cord

You have to power them separately.  Connect an "old fashioned" DirecTV power cord to the AM21 while using the "power brick" for the Genie DVR.  Then use the USB cable to connect them together.  The AM21 will always be "on", but that's OK.  Radio Shack sells those power cords if you don't have one.
