You don't need a Client for the HR24.

Yup, the Genie and the HR24 will see each other through the network and can playback shows from each other. The client will playback shows from the Genie and the HR24 too.

You will really like this set-up! Having all that flexibility is pretty awesome.
One recommendation: Double record your favorite things for a while on both the Genie and the DVR. Just until you are sure things are working the way you want.
I actually still do it on almost all my series links. That way I can be sure if one receiver reboots or fails somehow during a recording, the other will still have it.
