It really depends on what you want to do. If you need more tuners for recording or more space, it might be worth it to upgrade to a Genie to replace one of the HR24's. Just be aware that if you do that, you will be over 8 tuners and DirecTV will need to do some work to your setup. They would replace your SWM-LNB with a legacy LNB and then run 4 wires from the dish to you where you have your current main splitter. A SWM16 would be added there and your receivers would then be run off of splitters from the SWM16.
I still use my HR24-100 and have no problems with it. It's just as fast, if not a little faster than my HR34. I only upgraded for the ability to record more things at once and to have some more recording space.
