    Probably to simplify the installation for 5 tuners instead of 10 which a SWM 16 is required, or maybe 2 Genie's don't play nice together compared to HR2x/H2x or C31/41 clients but one will never know.

    They should allow 2 Genie's for subs that only have genie or genie clients C31/41, But should stay the same for everything else depending on how many HD DVR's, but should allow for H2x customers only.

    Imagine what would happen if DirecTV "discriminates" on who gets the 2 Genies…..

    So what benefit is the extra $2 charge for someone that already has a genie and has been with directv for years?

    Ordered the Genie via PP. The earliest Saturday available is on the 11th. They can install it any day of the week, including tomorrow, but I prefer to be here. I also got Encore and Showtime free for three months. There will be no charge to install, including changing swm to handle 9 tuners. Might be a charge to wire the other bedroom for the H25 that will go there, but we shall see. That will give me an HR34, HR24, and two H25's.

    There should NOT be a charge for a "relocate"

    Wonder if a H25 is an upgrade to a HR22?

    Going from any model reciever to another is an upgrade even a hd to a hd dvr or vice versa as an upgrade is changing out your reciever or adding an additional one. DirecTV uses a funny (or rather old) definition of what they consider upgrade. It isn't necessary getting a more advanced reciever. So yup that would be an upgrade :)

    So can someone explain to me. I just got a Genie for the 2 yr agreement. now i have a genie and 3 hd-dvrs. once i get it, i will have no reason to keep my protection plan as they really wont be able to upgrade anything for me. can i cancel the protection plan? I have had it for 9 yrs and barely ever used it.

    thanks.
