If I should have DirecTV install a Genie DirecTV advanced receiver to replace one of my installed 7 HD DVR's, I am wondering if in the future one of the DVR's needs to be replaced, will it be replaced with another DVR or will it be replaced with an MRV client?

According to the old terms (as well as the current Protection Plan terms) any failed device would be replaced with a unit that has "comparable features" (as determined by DIRECTV).

DIRECTV has recently taken the extraordinary step of updating the ELA to instruct you call DIRECTV at 1-800-531-5000 for more information regarding failure of leased equipment.

As a DIRECTV customer, which the prior responder isn't, I've had a Genie installed for awhile as a tester and during that time I needs to get to HR24's replaced. Both times DIRECTV sent another HR24 and not a client and I haven't seen or heard anything saying that HR2X's replacements would be a C31.

See post My Setup for configuration info.
