Thanks, guys. Not something I'd use...but as long as you can stuff the genie back in the bottle, I'm OK with it (and happy for those who like it).

If you use My DIRECTV/You Might Like, you'll luv Genie. If not, you'll probably forget about it after awhile -- if it lets you.

Of all the things that D* could do to improve their system, this wasn't even on my radar! :(

I see exactly zero sales/marketing advantage this brings to the table. And at best it is a marginal item that any would consider when deciding 'dish or direct'.

I'd rather they spend some time fixing 'channels I get'.

The document states that this feature will only be available on HR34 systems. That leaves out most customers.

Your HR21 recommends stuff you might want to watch as well (My DirecTV). The main difference is that Genie will record it.

Yes this will be HR34 only, and if you don't like it, the feature is very easy to tuen off.

Much different. The Tivo version allows you to rate programs with 1,2, or 3 thumbs up, or 1, 2, or 3 thumbs down, depending on your preference for each show. It then learns from those ratings, and eventually after a period of time, will only suggest things you really like.

Although I see no reason why this should be limited to the HR34, I don't really care either because it sounds pointless..

It records the shows for immediate viewing. Only the HR34 has the tuners, in the current design of the feature.

We're assuming it's opt-in, can't be sure that's always the case, but can easily be turned off if the default changes.

Nice feature. Reminds me of the old Tivo, but seems better.

Maybe thats a start of more features to come with the HR34 and C31's

I hope the C31 aren't that expensive, I would like to maybe drop my 2 H25s and pick those up.
