    Genie is the product name that DIRECTV is using for their Home Media Center (HR34 DVR)/RVU client (C31 RVU Client) hardware line. It's also the name they used for a feature on the HR34 that notices your viewing patterns and records in the background other shows that might be of intererst for you to watch.

    Genie refers to 2 things actually.

    DirecTV has renamed their flagship HD DVR (HR34) as the "Genie". Unlike other DVR's in thier product lineup, some of the advantages of this DVR over others are as follows:
    -PIP
    -5 tuners
    -100 series link limit
    -1 TB Hard Drive
    -RVU client access with the addition of either a Samsung Smart TV (select supported models) or a C31 Client

    It also contains a new feature dubbed the "Genie" which automatically gives instant access to shows like yours based on your viewing habbits, tastes and likes. This feature is selectable and refinable/customizable by the end user.

    Although this is the correct answer (with some grammar / spelling mistakes :D) I really like tomski35's answer.
