    To start, here is my equipment: 1 H20-100, 1 HR22-100, 1 HR20-700, 2 HR24-500. I just got a new Samsung tv so I am looking into getting a genie to take advantage of the built in tuner. When I called the rep said everything but the HR 24's need replaced need replaced to be compatable. The H20-100 is in my RV , and the HR22 and HR20 are at my lake home so to me they really don't need replaced. Do I tell Directv this or do I just swap them out when the installer comes. By the way, I want to keep the HR24's in addition to the genie at my primary residence. Thanks for the help.

    No they don't need to be replaced. The non HR24s would need a DECA for internet connectivity, but you said they are not even inside your house. So that is a mute point.

    Do I tell DTV that they are at a second home or that I just don't want to replace them?

    I think I would just tell them you don't want to replace them. But you also need to make sure that they don't deactivate them either.

    What you are doings is against DirecTV ToS. Dont be surprised if this thread gets locked.

    The H20 is NOT MRV compatible, so it will need to be replaced. This is standard procedure

    Won't it work with a Deca? I don't have any plain receivers, just DVRs and clients, so I have no experience in this area.

    The H20 does not have an ethernet port.
