    Thanks, guys. Not something I'd use...but as long as you can stuff the genie back in the bottle, I'm OK with it (and happy for those who like it).

    If you use My DIRECTV/You Might Like, you'll luv Genie. If not, you'll probably forget about it after awhile -- if it lets you.

    Of all the things that D* could do to improve their system, this wasn't even on my radar! :(

    I see exactly zero sales/marketing advantage this brings to the table. And at best it is a marginal item that any would consider when deciding 'dish or direct'.

    I'd rather they spend some time fixing 'channels I get'.

    The document states that this feature will only be available on HR34 systems. That leaves out most customers.

    I'm glad i still have HR-21's. I don't want anything recommending what i want to watch. I can decide for myself.

    Your HR21 recommends stuff you might want to watch as well (My DirecTV). The main difference is that Genie will record it.

    Yes this will be HR34 only, and if you don't like it, the feature is very easy to tuen off.

    Much different. The Tivo version allows you to rate programs with 1,2, or 3 thumbs up, or 1, 2, or 3 thumbs down, depending on your preference for each show. It then learns from those ratings, and eventually after a period of time, will only suggest things you really like.

    Although I see no reason why this should be limited to the HR34, I don't really care either because it sounds pointless..
