Guess no one wants to answer this one.
OK I will
In short NO it doesn't have the Genie recommends list on the other HD DVRs.
Its still the list of 8 under the " MY Directv " of whats currently on.
But HD DVRs are still fully functional in the VOD section so there is nothing the Genie gets that the HRs don't as far as programming.
Just a side note, I will never upgrade to a C31 unless Directv wants to drop of the HR44 along with it.
My next Upgrade I'm dropping one H25 and upgrading to the HR24.
Thanks a lot for the answer. I was hoping that the recorded shows would be accessable but it's not that big of a deal that it can't.
