I've had DirecTV for about 4 years, and have been using the HR24's for the last 2, and am very interested in upgrading to the Genie, but want to make sure I won't regret my decision.
I'm curious about 2 things, reliability and performance. I know that when the HR34 first launched, I saw a lot of posts about crashes, freezes and miscellaneous issues. Is the latest software release stable enough that both of these are things of the past?
Regarding performance, for those that have come from the HR24, is the Genie as fast as the HR24? Will I notice significant delays in scrolling, and general usage?
I plan on keeping one HR24, and swapping the other out for the Genie, and then swapping the other 2 HR23's out for clients. Anything i need to keep in mind? I know that I'll only have a maximum of 7 tuners, but that's more than enough for us. I really want the ability to manage all my recordings in one place, and more imporatantly, want to have PIP back on my main TV.
Thanks for any responses!
