You beat me to it.  Thanks again.

 

BTW, after getting Android phone setup for GenieGo, I went out and bought an ipad.

Which one?  although you should have waited as the newer iPad is rumored to be coming very soon

Retina Display 128GB.  I wanted it for a vacation in early October.  So, waiting probably wasn't an option.

That's been out since I think January or February. They just snuck it in without much fan fare.

Personally, I think they should offer the iPad 2 in 32 this coming year, and the ne wine in 32 64 128 only and get rid of 16. Of course I also think they should to that with the iPhones and that didn't happen.

Yup, very disappointed.  and even now that the new 5s has 64 bit architecture, it means that apps keep getting bigger and bigger as one apps has to support now both the 32 and 64 bit system.  basically two apps in one.  throw in if the app is universal, and then you get all versions in one app.

Did you think that I was asking you questions just to hear you speak?  You made a compelling case for going with the 128.  So, that's the way that I went.

I have a feeling you'll have different apps for offering bit architecture and it'll auto download the right version.

Just had an HR44 installed in Lincoln Park, NJ over the weekend.  Installers said they had just got them in 2 days earlier.  The one installer was teaching the other about the setup.  Quite comical....

HR44-700 installed in Scott Depot, WV.  Tech said they just got them during the past week.  Installation of the Genie and 2 Minis was smooth and silk and I am VERY happy with them!

Yep, born and raised in Foxboro, as a matter of fact!  Work has taken me to West Virginia (and erased my Boston accent over the years) but I still follow all those teams...

If you are only purchasing 1 DVR, can someone explain why you would purchase a 1TB  HR24 rather then an HR 44 particularly since the HR 24 typically costs  more then an HR44?

The HR24 is only 500GB, not 1TB and does not cost more than the HR44.
