The honest answer, HR21-HR24 (though I'm not prepared to totally rule out HR20). Unless it was an upgrade to Genie, which would be an HR34.

In June when I upgraded an SD DVR to HD DVR I got an HR24. The tech said that is all he carries on his truck now for an upgrade.
It is very nice. Hope your dad gets one.
