    Does DirecTV allow more than one Genie DVR per account?

    The simple answer is no. Whether it is a technical limitation of the Genie platform or just a policy I dont know

    Since we have some users who got to beta test Genies and have more than one, I would say it is a policy decision and not technical. It may change in the future.

    Pretty sure it's a bit of both. I'm willing to bet the ranch- or a half acre of it- that one day, one fine day, all our children will be able to have multiple Genies.

    At this time it is technical. Multiple Genies + Clients do not play well together (or I suppose you could say there is a legitamate technical reason the policy is enforced).

    It's no secret i have two genies And i can tell you there's technical reasons. Ill say the number if reasons has changed over time. :)

    There's also IMHO logistical issues of several types that would need to be worked out to first for it to be available to everyone. I suspect sometime next year we might see two being allowed. However I don't know if or when we will ever see unlimited like we do now for regular two tuner DVrs.

    Well, wonder if there is a market for a five tuner DVR that does NOT work with RVU clients? An HR25

    As someone who has 2 Genies I can tell you it's definitely technical.

    Is it technical from an RVU client standpoint or from any H/HR as a client standpoint?

    Herdfan we really can't say what the issues are.

    But look at it this way, it really doesn't matter either. I don't see any way they are going to release it till you can put together a system that has two genies a wired mini a wireless mini a hd receiver and a hd DVr and have everything work right. And not all those solutions work correct right now.
