I love Directv. Ive had Dish, Time Warner and have seen my local telco companys fiber optic (Verizon Fios) version and Directv as a whole including their customer service, which by the way still works deals like the car dealers used to do ! Why oh why do they let the Genie out of the bottle with half baked i.e. software or firmware ? Now the 44 is on its way to save the day ? where will that leave us with the HR34 ? Do we really think it will be any different. I have had my Genie for 3 days, one of which I have been to busy to play with it because I'm writing a rant (yuk yuk) and I have already rebooted to the tune of 7 times to stop weird things that have been happening to it. Do most of the people here just keep trolling hoping the next firmware will fix it ? I have seen people that say they have been waiting a year ! What is going on with Directv or their equipment ? I know its everywhere but I really would like a stable unit like my HR25's are.
