I still get those offers from DirecTV. Sometimes as many as two per week, wanting me to come back. NO CHANCE! I am so pleased with my Hopper and Joeys that DirecTV could offer free equipment and free subscriptions for two years, and I'd still ignore them. Maybe the Genie is better than the old HR series receivers were. I can't imagine them being any worse! For all of the time I used to spend on here researching and frustratingly trying to find ways to make my old DVR perform properly, Dish and the Hopper have paid me back ten fold. Heck, the only reason I even stop by here anymore is to occasionally read or share information in the OT forums. How great is that?! Yeah, I'm a fanboy... and I love it! :righton: That's what happens when you find a product that performs as it should. Thanks, Dish! For making my life so much easier and simpler. Your software updates add new features that are actually useful, and I don't have to spend my time rebooting and resetting crappy hardware just so I can watch TV.
