I need some help figuring out if I should upgrade a DVR to a Genie in my system as it is currently set up.
I have an existing Whole Home system with four DVRs and two standard receivers (3 HR20s, 1 HR 24, two H24s). I am doing some remodeling and need to have a second DTV line brought into one room that is changing from a standard receiver to a DVR. I have DECA boxes on all my equipment. I am also getting a Samsung tv that is RVU capable. My question is about whether to upgrade to a Genie as the DVR in one room rather than the standard DVR. Reviews seem mixed, I don't want a huge hassle with Genie mini's needing re-setting, etc. Can I use the Genie as just part of my existing system and just keep all the wiring I have? I assume my switchbox is 16, since I have 10 lines coming in now.
Thanks for your help. I always like getting new toys but hate the hassles when things don't work well together. I don't want to ask DTV this question because I assume they will just sell me as much as they can.
