And I've been gone over 2 years now... but I miss this place and DTV DVRs. How are people liking this new Genie unit?

How is pricing going? Does anyone bundle with FiOS Internet?

Genie rules
Pricing should be good if youve been gone 24 months
Yes DTV bundles with FIOS

Isn't this only in areas that have FIOS Internet but not FIOS TV? I didn't think they would bundle together if FIOS TV is available?
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."

You might be correct I know some of the bundle options are dependent on zip code...but they are a partner

You can order FIOS internet at the time you order DIRECTV service if you order it through DIRECTV. You will not get an intigrated bill but you can still get a bundle savings.

Very cool to see you back here Cap!

If you take a journey through the First Look area and some other threads...it should hep you "catch up" with some things you have missed on your DBSTalk "vacation". :D

There have been some neat things over the past year or two, and probably plenty more to come ahead. Welcome back.
