I just put in an order for the Genie DVR. Intsallation is scheduled for tomorrow. We will be keeping our HR20 for at least a few months so we can watch the shows already on it. Both DVRs will be connected to the same TV since we only have one TV in the house.
The main reason we have never added another TV is because our house walls are all tongue and groove pine thoughout the whole house and we din't want to put holes in the walls of the other rooms. So my question is... will the Genie allow us to put a TV in another room without punching holes for the tuners? If so, how does that work? Does it requires some extra equipment?
And will our old DVR, the HR20, need tuners connected if we are just watching the recordings and not using it to record anything new? Is it possible to view its content through the Genie DVR?
