    Great job as always.

    While I prefer the HR's the Clients are a good cost saving method of getting a full Whole home system.

    I actually did replace my H25. It's not for everyone, but in this situation I'm fine with it taking a tuner for live. I just like having full DVR functionality and management.

    i have a brief but need to know question about how or what type of cabling would a HR-DVR 44 connect to this c41 client? Coax? ethernet?
    Thanks

    I'm not at all sure your comment is accurate; certainly it's true with a client in the mix, but I've read that some have a stand alone Genie (and no Whole Home.)

    I suppose that an existing customer could get a Genie without having WHDVR active, although I can't imagine why someone would want that. :lol:

    I guess I was thinking of new customers where it is mandatory and included in the advanced DVR fee.

    Yes, I agree. Though a Genie with nothing else fits some folk's needs very well.

    And they don't connect physically. By each connecting to a coax, they are "shared".
