I picked up a new Sony RVU Tv to connect up to my genie. While samsung has been the only compatable tv for some time, Sony now has some 2013 model. I plugged it up, updated my software and registered as a client. I was then prompted to call directv.
So the Tech support superviser says that sony is not even in the pull down menu to allow them to activate it. It is not compatable. Even though the model is listed on the directv site as compatable. So be careful if you sell or plan to use the new sony r series! It does not work right now.
