I've been away from the forum for several years, but now I'm back with questions about the Genie. Finally decided to get one after delaying because of an anticipated out of state relocation. The move still hasn't taken place and I don't want to wait any longer...
My question is related to the mix of TV models... My primary TV is a JVC that is obviously not RVU capable and the 2nd is a Samsung ES6150 that is. I just got off the phone ordering a Genie and a client, but I'm unsure whether I'll actually need the client and installation of a new cable to that room. The rep was knowledgeable enough, but getting irritated with my questions and wanted to finish up and move on, so I just placed the order and decided to come here for the info knowing that this is the best place anyway.
I had initially thought that I could hook the HR34 to the JVC and it would work with the Samsung without any additional equipment, but the D-tv rep said no, ALL TV's had to be RVU in order to use only the HR34.
Can I setup the HR34 the way I originally thought or do I need the client?
Are there other RVU devices yet besides Samsung TV's?
Thanks in advance for your response,

Not sure if I should call and get a replacement unit or simply wait it out after the next release.
