Anyone have one of these yet?  If so, is there a best way to obtain.  If not, any idea when they will be available.

Best way to get is to buy from 3 party authorize dealer like solidsignal

Solid Signal did have them available until a couple days ago but have sold out, they're trying to get more.


See post My Setup for configuration info.

GenieGo is treated as GenieGo 1 and GenieGo 2 being equal boxes. Just like they consider the HR21, HR22, HR23 and HR24 as equal boxes, HD DVR's or HR34/HR44's as Genie. So if you ordered from DIRECTV you might get either model GenieGo.

if you get one from a tech that may be the case as warehouses have to deplete old inventory first before the even get new inventory. as far as drop ship, well the same would apply but no one knows how much inventory DirecTV has of the old version and until they run out of that, they wont be shipping the new version.  the good news is that since the GG is owned, once is gone is gone, so from there on, only GG2 will be shipped

At one point SolidSignal had them, don't think they've been able to get any more.

 

Of course speed is the biggest benefit. I have one, but generally still do any transcoding I need the night before.

Did you buy from SS as well? Did you specifically order the 2?

I ordered my first Nomad/GenieGo from Directv on Monday and received a GenieGo 2 on Tuesday. The Win7 program and iOS7 app are obtuse and inelegant, but the thing works as promoted.

I have a Genie Go.  Is it worth getting the 2nd version?  Doesn't it only transcode faster?  I'm thinking that wouldn't be worth the upgrade.

If transcoding speed is important to you then yes, plus it does OTA recordings for the AM21 also which the GG1 doesn't do.

I think they sent down an update for geniego1 because mine has been transcoding the ota from the am21.
