So when I called DIrect TV about reducing the price for NFL Sunday Ticket the rep also offered the free upgrade to the Genie. She also said that with my current set up (I only have two HD receivers) they could ship it to me and I could hook it up myself or they would send out a tech at no charge. Needless to say I told her I would think about it. My questions are first of all, can I hook it up myself, or was she incorrect. Second, if I can hook it up myself, do I stand a better chance of receiving a HR44 having it shipped as opposed to having a tech come out? Thanks for the help.
