I've been a customer with Directv almost since there was a Directv. I was fine with my most recent receiver (HR44) until my 1080p TV finally died and I replaced it with a Samsung KS8000 in 2016. At that point I was out of contract and the only uses I had for Directv were sports and news because PQ and sound are better via streaming. Immediately after cutting ties last month and planning to just use Directv Now, they announced a price increase. On top of that, it became apparent to me that they are going to be working out kinks for some time to come. I got a fantastic deal by coming back to Directv. The biggest surprise I have found is the performance of the 4K Genie Mini over the Genie box itself. The PQ on the 54 seems equal to what the performance was on the 44. But the Mini just seems to have a much better PQ. Perhaps it is a little slower, but I don't really care so much about that. I am just curious if anyone else feels that the mini PQ is superior to the Genie?
