I am a bit confused on how all this works. Attached is my current setup and the order of equipment that directv says I need. We are adding a HD tv to my sons room so will move either the HD dvr or HD reciever into his room. The Genie will go where the current HD DVR is. Which tv's will be able to 'see' the Genie's playlist and can those tv's play the shows on the play list? I already have one CCK attached to our current dvr for VOD do I need another. Is the CCK what allows other tv's to connect to the Genie? I don't have an install date...well I did but the installer refused to install dure to the hight of our dish and now we are waiting for a supervisor to take a look and discuss options. Called directv twice to try get this expedited sooner then the 3-5 days to even get a call from our local office but can't get past the call center just confirming 3-5 day wait.

You will end up with one hr34, one hr21, and one h21. All 3 will be able to view recordings from either DVR. The hr34 can feed/serve 3 shows at a time and the hr21 can feed/show one (via whole home). All three can watch live TV at any time.

It also looks like he is getting a C31 client (due to the Swap/Replace DirecTV Client line item).

As for the CCK, what you have will most likely be used unless the installer decides to use a new one. One CCK will bridge your coax network for all your receivers to your home network. If you actually have an ethernet cable over where the HR34 is being installed you can forgo the CCK and just plug the ethenet cable into the HR34 as it has the ability to act as that bridge. Connection to your home network is not needed for Mutli-Room Viewing to work. The HR21 and H21 will have a DECA adapter connected behind them to allow them to participate in MRV.
