I like the PIP option

I like the PIP option and the faster UI...but would prefer not to see all my kids shows in the playlist...and somewhat concerned about HDCP not allowing me to continue to record shows to my DVD-R.  So just weighing the pros and cons...

If the kids have their own DVR, you can set it so as to not share playlists and you won't see their stuff in your playlist.  This can be done on a unit by unit basis, but can only be done, or changed, on the local unit.  In other words, you couldn't remotely change the setting on their DVR, you would have to go to that unit to make the change.

Well, HDCP has not change from that of the HR2X DVRs. So whatever you were ding before will work with the Genie.  HDCP is only enforced on HDMI, so component and composite are up for grabs.
