Great job as always.

 

While I prefer the HR's the Clients are a good cost saving method of getting a full Whole home system.

I actually did replace my H25. It's not for everyone, but in this situation I'm fine with it taking a tuner for live. I just like having full DVR functionality and management.

Thanks

I'm not at all sure your comment is accurate; certainly it's true with a client in the mix, but I've read that some have a stand alone Genie (and no Whole Home.)

I suppose that an existing customer could get a Genie without having WHDVR active, although I can't imagine why someone would want that.  :lol:

 

I guess I was thinking of new customers where it is mandatory and included in the advanced DVR fee.

Yes, I agree. Though a Genie with nothing else fits some folk's needs very well.

And they don't connect physically.  By each connecting to a coax, they are "shared".
