Ooo! The remote looks smaller than the current one I have.
It is. About 2-3 inches shorter.
The tech might still needs access to the DVR. he might have to do a test called IV retest. so regardless if you move it or not, he will still must have access to the room.
Okay. Well I guess I'll deal with it when it comes to whatever he needs access to. Thanks!!
Unless you find yourself running out of recording space or needing more than 100 series recordings Id go all genie and make your life very simple. It would still be a minimum of two tuners more than you have now and three more that can record and twice as many series recording and twice as much recording space. And full access at both tvs to everything except pip.
Don't let the tech take away your old remote. It will still work with the Genie and many people prefer it to the new remote. You don't want to find out that you're one of those people after you've given the old one back.
This thread is very helpful. I have a couple more questions though. If I currently have two DVRs and a receiver, is any additional wiring required or is it just an equipment swap? Also, if I replace one of the DVRs and keep the other, do I lose the recordings that are on the one that remains?
You already have SWM, and replacing one of your DVRs with a Genie would not go over your current tuner limit. More changes are required if you had two DVRs and a genie, but not in the wiring to each room, just coming off the dish.
Recordings on a DVR you keep will be unaffected.
I'm using both because the new one is missing some of the functions of the old one like the "yellow button menu". Other than that I like the new one.
the yellow button was replaced by the INFO or DASH keys, depends in which screen you are on
Thanks, I'll play around with those!
Hi again! I am just checking in, I wanted to ask a quick question. I know I may be just being worried, but today was when I was upgraded from hd receiver to a genie. So now I have HD DVR + Genie, and I went into my online account to see the list of my equipment. This is what it shows:
I asked the guy that installed the equipment said that he deactivated and activated the genie. But as of right now, it still states that the genie needs to be activated, and the old box hasn't been deactivated (removed). Is this because the account hasn't been updated or do I need to do the removing of the HD receiver and activate the genie?
What you showed us are services, not receivers. The receivers are $6 per month.
And as a service, GenieGo really has nothing to do with the Genie. It actually has it's own hardware.
Funny enough that the wording does indeed make them look like receivers...
