    Is the Genie setup the same as my older model HR-23 ?
    I am scheduled for a new install of a Genie and clients in a few days.
    What should I expect ? Thanks for any advice.

    Pretty much but it has 5 tuners so it depends on the other receivers you have. If you stay under 8 and have a SWM LNB then it will just be a receiver swap and nothing more if you go over 8 more work will be required.

    It doesn't need an external DECA for whole home.

    Also, the user interface and menu structure is the same, so setup from a user perspective is the same.
