    Well, got no answer to that question. Could he have meant "swap a client FOR an HD DVR"? And, if he did, why would he say that? I'd much rather have an HD DVR than a client.

    +1 on that. Don't know why someone, who already has an HDDVR, would want to replace it with a client.

    I have 2 HR-22's and will eventually upgrade to a Genie. At the end of the day, I will have a Genie and 2 mini clients or a Genie and keep the 2 HR-22's. If the mini clients are faster then the HR-22's at changing channels, Browsing the Guide and DVR, etc. then I will change out the HR-22's for mini clients. I have not been able to confirm if the mini clients are faster or not. 5 Tuners is enough for me since I currently only have 4. So to answer your question, I think speed is a valid reason to go with the mini clients if they are indeed faster and you don't need the extra tuners.

    but even if the clients "were" faster, you already (paid) have two HDDVRs that cost the same as having two clients. You can always have the HDDVRs replaced when they fail.

    Genie with two HR22's is 9 tuners to record. Genie with two clients is 3 tuners to record when the clients are active. Just need to be sure of your needs.

    I just got a free Genie upgrade from retention without the need for PP, Im still several months before the contract expires, Now if the techs carry the HR44 that will be even better.
