Genie HR44 UPgrade
Posted 12 August 2013 - 05:31 PM
I received the SWM LNB from Amazon.com today, and hooked it up to my HR-22 and HR-24. Had to go with the complete satellite setups again, but didn't take too long. Everything working perfectly, so ready for the Genie. Sure hope I get a new HR-44 and don't have to arm wrestle with them.

I came across your post recently. I have an almost identical situation to you - I currently have an HR20 and HR24 in 2 rooms, and I'd like to upgrade to Genie. I also have an old lifetime DVR subscription (from old Tivo) - there's not many of us who have this, DirecTv once told me less than 200! I'm also a subscriber since 1994. Its always been a bit of an effort to work with upgrades and make sure they keep my lieftime DVR subscription. What did you find out for the costs from DirecTV? Did they give you any break on the monthly fees?

They don't usually discount monthly fee's like $6/receiver, or the MRV fee, but occasionally they will credit you some back for the HD fee's....
