    I am planning on getting a Genie and with my setup 3 HDRs I would need a SWM16. Anyone know what the cost is to replace an SWM8 with a SWM16 and does Directv charge to do this? Also if you use a Genie client I assume SWM capacity is not a factor as the client does not record. Is this correct?

    There is no separate charge when your account requires a SWiM16.

    As long as DirecTV is doing the upgrade for you, the will provide whatever hardware is necessary to get you going

    They did this week out with a bad 8 in with a 16. I was surprised at that, being the 16 cost more, but maybe not for them
