My current setup is as follows:
HR24 as my main DVR with 2 coax feeds and internet connection
H23's and H24's throughout the house, all networked.
I like that i can watch recorded shows from anywhere.
I am moving in a week. not sure what to do for the new house. my options are:
1. Optimum online cable. Very inexpensive ($50 extra as i pay for internet/phone through them), but i know the equipment they give you stinks. I can go with all Tivo boxes, but it gets expensive.
2. Keep what I have and move it all. I will need to run Coax and Cat-5 throughout the house (it's already built and finished, but the prev owners only had 2 TV's with DTV). I don't want to trust DTV's installer as the house is fully built, i don't want them messing up my walls, etc.
3. Ask DTV to upgrade some of my gear (the 4 TV's i mainly use) to Genie. I don't know the advantages to genie, but i read that each "remote" genie box can only get a Cat-5, not a Coax, and then watch live TV or recorded. If that's the case, it saves me on cabling.
Would love to hear everyone's recommendations. Thanks.
