I just got off the phone with DTV and am having one of my ancient HR20s replaced with the Genie. They would not provide me C31s, however, because I have 2 other HR20s in the house and they say it would be best to just use those. Is this true? I see all this stuff about using the Genie with the H25 so I assume the HR20 will still work to play content from the Genie just like any other shared DVR.... but since I have not seen it called out I wanted to make sure. If I'm going to be stuck with a Genie that can record all these shows but can't be watched from other TV's with my equipment, I'll call and cancel my order. Note: My HR20s are slower than dirt. I just could not take it anymore, which is why I called to upgrade. The Genie fixes one location but I assume isn't going to fix the others, which will still be locally slow and typically slow accessing content over the network. Maybe I'd be better off getting a couple free H25s and sending back my HR20s?
