I have been back with Directv only for 3 weeks. I only had it installed on 2 TV's the Genie as well its Client as all I had at the time was 2 tv's now I am getting a third TV for another bedroom and I wanted to add a receiver, the TV will be HD and I can use the whole home DVR so would it be best just to get a standard HD receiver? thanks.
Why not get an HR?

Why not get an HR?
If you're going to shell out more money, might as well have more tuners. I would go HR but if you only want an HD receiver, aim for the H25.

At $100 you have two options. An HD or another C31. Which is better for you depends on your preference. An HD would let you watch and pause/rwd/fdw recordings. It would let you set recordings, but only with the default settings. It would let you watch live TV without taking a tuner from the HR34, but would not let you pause/rwd/fwd it.
My thoughts and opinions are my own, and do not necessarily represent those of DirecTV, my HSP, or anyone else.

The best option at $200 is an HD/DVR, but you run the risk of getting a sluggish HR21-23.
Good for you! Truth.

If you are going to have to pay $100 or $200 I would go to Solid Signal and Pick the model I wanted to buy ( still a lease but you choose the model ).
