Although I have installed all the cabling in my house and set up the whole home system, I'm looking for help with what receiver setup would be the best. Not an area I keep up to date on. I'm able to upgrade receivers thru the protection plan. Present list of receivers is:

 

H24-700

HR22-100

HR21-100

H24-700

HR24-500

 

What should I be looking at for the upgrade? What should I keep, what should I upgrade?

Thanks in advance for helping!

Only thing is a Genie. I'd personally get rid of the HR21, though that would require a SWM16 as you'd be over 8 tuners.

 

Upgrades are between classes, not in the same class so no HR24 upgrade from 21 etc.

I'd probably drop the HR21 as well and get a Genie. It has the smallest hard drive and you'd then have 9 recording tuners as opposed to your current 6. If you really need additional recording capability, you can drop one of the H24's for the Genie, but I'd rather have speed and the H24's are pretty quick, especially compared to the HR21. - Merg Sent from my iPad using DBSTalk mobile app

Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

They may require an installer to come out, but in case they don't, remember to not overload one side of your SWM.
