    I have been back with Directv only for 3 weeks. I only had it installed on 2 TV's the Genie as well its Client as all I had at the time was 2 tv's now I am getting a third TV for another bedroom and I wanted to add a receiver, the TV will be HD and I can use the whole home DVR so would it be best just to get a standard HD receiver? thanks.

    You could just get another C31 client if you wanted to.

    Or get a full H24 or H25, though you would need to get it from Solid Signal or another reseller.

    Why not get an HR?

    If you're going to shell out more money, might as well have more tuners. I would go HR but if you only want an HD receiver, aim for the H25.

    The best option at $200 is an HD/DVR, but you run the risk of getting a sluggish HR21-23.

    At $100 you have two options. An HD or another C31. Which is better for you depends on your preference. An HD would let you watch and pause/rwd/fdw recordings. It would let you set recordings, but only with the default settings. It would let you watch live TV without taking a tuner from the HR34, but would not let you pause/rwd/fwd it.

    If you are going to have to pay $100 or $200 I would go to Solid Signal and Pick the model I wanted to buy ( still a lease but you choose the model ).
