Finally had my parent's install done 8/24/2013. Installer showed up with HR44 and three C41s. Install went well and sent him on the way. Then I called in and added two additional RVU clients (Samsung UN32F5500 TVs). I bought DECA adapters off Amazon and installed them myself rather than paying DirecTV $50 each for them. The CSR on the phone had a bit of trouble because he had never done an RVU client activation for a customer only for install techs. Eventually after putting me on hold a few times we were able to get it all figured out and up and running. So my parent's now have the HR44 in the living room and C41s in the kitchen, salon, and family room, and RVU TVs in two of the bedrooms (five clients total).
Everything works great, and I was able to verify my assumption that if you try to turn on a fourth or fifth RVU client while three are already being used you will get a error screen telling you that you have to turn off one of the other clients (it even lists the names of the clients active I believe). I had taken a picture of the screen to post here, but accidentally deleted it. The RVU TVs seemed to respond pretty quick for the most part. When you first turn them on it does take a little bit longer for them to start up, but then they run pretty smooth. Channel changes take a bit longer than the C41 clients too, but not anything horrible. Overall I think my parents will be very happy with them.
Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
