A follow up question to this... I'm about to be a new account owner, and have chosen the HR34 for our living room and Genie C31 clients for the bedroom and office to run off it. I was planning on adding an AM21. Assuming the AM21 identifies the additional locals in its scan will I be able to watch the channels coming in on the AM21 via the Genie clients, or only on the HR34 itself?

You can either watch an AM21 OTA tuner live on a C31 client or an OTA recording, both work.
The AM21 provides two OTA tuners to be used in some mix of watching on a C31 or watching/recording on the HR34.

One more follow up question.. can you exclude some channels the AM21 finds on the HR34? For example we get an ETV station with about 5 subchannels that I don't really care to scroll through. Can I have it not display those, or is it an all or nothing deal?

Yes you can edit off air channels and prevent the channels/sub channels from displaying in the guide.

To add to this I believe you can do it in two seperate places as well. Inside the antenna set-up screen, as well as in your cutom guide if you are using one. I think I make sure to include all of them in the antenna set-up screen, but then only include the ones I really want in my custom guide. That way if I ever do want to check out what is on those channels for some reason I can just switch my guide over to all channels, and they will show up, then I can go back to my custom guide to get rid of them again. This saves me from having to edit the channel list in the antenna set-up section over and over.
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."
