It's probably been discussed to death already but I haven't been able to find suitable answers in my hour-long search of the site. If these questions have been asked before, I apologize and request to be pointed to the appropriate thread. Background - I currently have 3x HR20-700s with unsupported MRV via ethernet. All of the boxes are still in decent shape. Two of the boxes have eSATA disks for more storage and are generally speedier than the box without an eSATA drive. However, all of them are pokey to varying degrees with the current software revisions (even though it's better than it was a few months ago) and the spousal unit isn't as happy as she once was. She has an opportunity with her current employer to get a discount on service and maybe some new equipment. The HR34/Genie was one of the things that caught her eye after I mentioned it to her a few months back. I know the HR34 boxes aren't any speedier than the HR2x units right now but it appears to be the hardware D* is going to be spending their time on development going forward. Our dish is currently the SWMLine-5, an "upgrade" from the old-style regular 4-output SL5 head and a 5x8 multiswitch. I still have the old SL5 head in storage and could be re-used when I need to go to a SWM16 unit. I have exactly two questions: First - has there been any change to the 1x HR34/Genie per account rule? I'd want to replace 2x of our HR20 boxes to HR34 boxes and get either an RVU client or an H2x box for the 3rd TV. One HR34 box would house my content. The other HR34 would house my wife's content. The 3rd TV is in our common space and only needs to stream from the DVRs but managing recordings on both of the DVRs from that common location would certainly be nice. Since 10x DVR tuners is plenty for the two (and eventually our son as number three) of us, we don't need the HR20 as a third box. As a result, I'm willing to give up all 3 HR20s in favor of this new setup provided we can actually get 2x HR34s on a single account. Second - Would I be required to go "supported" on MRV? Once I order the equipment - 2x HR34s, 1x SWM16, 1x DECA (for external network connections), and either 1x H2x receiver or 1x RVU - I have all the wiring in place to do the job myself. It's literally plug-and-play, as far as I can tell. I'm a former low-level cable TV tech and a current IT support tech so I can definitely support my own installation. In the entire time I've had service, I have made exactly zero support calls related to equipment or wiring, including the transition from my legacy LNB head to the SWM head. Thank you in advance for your time.
