Genie Installation & External Hard Drive Questions
I’ve always had a great DTV installation experience because I always come here first for advice and I end up teaching the install tech a trick or two so thanks in advance!
1. I currently have 4 HR-22s installed each with 2 tuners active. I am replacing one of them with the Genie. I believe I currently have a 8 line SWIM switch (forgive me if terminology is incorrect). In order to utilize all 5 tuners on the Genie and use 2 tuners on the 3 remaining HR-22s I believe I will need to have the installer put in a 16 line SWIM switch? Or something at least above 8? And other adive
2. I’m going to purchase a 1 or 2 TB external hard drive for the Genie. Any recommendations? (I’ve had a Western Digital hooked up to one of the HR-22s that has worked flawlessly and I have to keep it on there because my wife will not let me delete her 100s of Oprah episodes that I know she will never watch but it’s not worth the “discussion”.

Thanks in advance!
