I'm sure people have asked 100 times and I've seen a few of the posts (browsed an hour before I posted this) but I have not seen anything real recent. I have two properly functioning HR24's, both hard wired with one connected to a LAN. Only diff is one is slower than the other on menu changes and fast forwards (though both have the same firmware and remote)/ It's time to reup my annual DTV deal and I'm considering moving to one Genie and one mini. Our only issue with the current setup is that we record a lot and often have two shows recording at once on one of the HR24's. With a Genie and a mini...will we be able to only record 3 shows at once if we are watching live TV on two TV's or what's the scoop? Would also appreciate any comments on Genie performance vs the HR24's. Seems like a lot of bitching lately. Thank you!!!
