Yeah, that's important. It's opt in, not opt out etc.
It records the shows for immediate viewing. Only the HR34 has the tuners, in the current design of the feature.
We're assuming it's opt-in, can't be sure that's always the case, but can easily be turned off if the default changes.
Engadget picked up the story and the Solid Signal video.
Nice feature. Reminds me of the old Tivo, but seems better.
Maybe thats a start of more features to come with the HR34 and C31's
I hope the C31 aren't that expensive, I would like to maybe drop my 2 H25s and pick those up.
In the real world Genie's don't "recommend" they grant wishes. The Genie union will not like this. I see a Genie strike coming soon unless they renegotiate his contract and higher rates for Genies means a DirecTV price increase. :sure:
A two tuner DVR recording a bunch of stuff in the background would come near being more annoying than a five tuner DVR recording a bunch of stuff in the background.
But will Genie recommendations be available across the DirecTV MRV network that has other STBs?
I think only the C31s.
I'd rather just having all of the hard drive space be "user accessible". I don't need pre-downloaded VOD and I don't need Genie.
BTW, the Solid Signal video says that the HR34/C31s are being renamed to Genie, and that this is just a new feature of it. Is this true, or are they still going to be marketed as the Home Media Center and Genie is only going to refer to this specific feature?
Those solid signal folks are usually pretty on top of things.
Well Dish has a semi-cute name for their system, so the brain wizs at DirecTV decided they needed a cuter name.
What if I like all Prime Time shows, Can it record them all for me each night every night?
You have 5 tuners on the HR34-Genie, you can record 5 programs at the same time plus download a VOD. You are also not limited to what channels you can record, they can be any 5.
I don't like the whole Genie naming I would of left it Home Media Center
You can turnit off.
Genie decides based on what you actually watch and what you set to record, evidently. So simply using your DVR gives it info,instead of having to thumbs up and thumbs down stuff.
I know it works decent, simply because it seems to like to record a lot of things that I record on other DVRs.
