Since you already have 3 HD-DVRs that means you currently have 6 tuners on your system. If you were to replace one of your HD-DVRs with a Genie, then you would be up to 9 tuners. That requires a SWM-16 install which you are very unlikely to have currently. In my opinion you should order it through DirecTV so they come out and get everything set up right for you. If you don't know much about it, setting up a SWM-16 on your own can be somewhat difficult. Not to mention by the time you buy a SWM 16, the power inserter, splitters, LNB, and Genie you are probably looking at spending over $400, ordering the Genie through DirecTV you will likely be able to get it for $300 or less depending on your account status.

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
