Ok, I admit it - I haven't done much research on Genie yet, but I figured I'd post a quick question to get some feedback to see if it was worth looking into a Genie upgrade. I currently have one HR24 DVR and three HR22 DVRs. I also have Whole Home Service and all but one of the boxes is hooked up to my network and to the internet. So, I already have the ability to tape 8 things at the same time, and watch most of those on any of the three connected DVRs. So my basic question is - is it worth upgrading to a Genie with 3 mini-clients? What are the primary benefits over my current setup?
Also, is it hard to get the Genie hooked up to the internet? I have a friend who upgraded and through he'd be able to get it connected just by plugging it into his network via ethernet cable (like he did with his prior box), but that didn't work. He was told he'd need to purchase a connection kit. Is that true?
