Upgrading from HR22 to Genie

HR22 Upgrade Genie

Best Answer inkahauts , 01 December 2013 - 03:18 PM

And I'd go all genie and kill off the HR22.

Actually what I'd do is add a genie and mini genie to the HR22 and when you are done watching everything on it deactivate the HR22 and be at an all genie system. But you can take as long as you like as long as you don't mind the extra receiver fee while your doing that. Go to the full post

Thanks for all the great info.  I talked to DirecTV again today, and she confirmed that the programs could not be moved from one DVR to another.  She did tell me about the Genie Go.  I think that's what the other store rep was talking about on Friday.  From what I understand, the Genie Go allows you to copy programs to it from another receiver.  The bad thing is it does it in real-time, meaning 100 hours of programming would take 100 hours to copy.  That, and the $150 cost. :)  As I told the rep today, that's a lot of $6 / month fees.

 

I'm probably going to hold on to the HR22 for a month to get the stuff off of it.  Then decide what to do with it at that point.  I'll probably deactivate it and send it back.  Then hold off on getting another unit until later.  I like the idea of buying an older receiver or DVR.  Getting the RID will allow me to ensure the device is able to be activated.

 

One more question.  Can the HR22-100 do Whole Home DVR?  She told me it couldn't, but another rep said the HR21 could.  If the HR21 can, the HR22 should be able to since they're essentially the same, right?

Yes, it'll be fine for Whole Home service.

 

As to GenieGo, it's a great travel companion, but it transcodes show to display on an iPad or similar. Much larger screens would be pixel-starved.

if if a show is deleted from the DVR it will get deleted from the GenieGo.  I also would assume that if the receiver is removed from the account, the recordings will be deleted on the GenieGo as well.

 

and GenieGo recordings on a mobile device will "self destruct" in 30 days

HR21 on up all can easily be used in a whole home DVR set up. HR20 is generally the one that has to be done through the cinema connection kit to add it to the whole home dvr because it doesn't have the right ports on back to added it to the moca set up and that is provided it is hooked to the satellite using a legacy port (HR20 that is).


Don't be afraid to be yourself.

what? There is no difference is connecting either an HR21 or HR20 to a WHDVR network. They both can be part of the network and they both are SWM compatible. The only difference is the HR20-100 that needs a special configuration.
