I don't like having all my recordings on one HDD, first, so I have four standalone DVRs. But a guy buttonholed me in Walmart the other day. He had a little table set up and was hawking DTV. I said I thought the Hopper approach was a better approach than the Genie, but I agreed with him that DTV is a much better company. But I complained that DTV only lets one Genie on an account (same with the Hopper, I think), and he said "no, you can have more than one". Not sure I believe him; his argument against the Hopper was that it 'records everything'. Well yeah. Duh. That's the idea. He said 'it ties up the tuner with recordings so you can't do anything else during prime time". And we all know that isn't true, and that you can break that tuner away for offhand use and even turn the Hopper function off, so I don't know how much credence to give to "more than one Genie". He was not a 'Genie-us', apparently. Bottom line, can you have two Genies on one account? If I could get two Hoppers, I would be tempted, but since I have like 900 hours of recorded shows on DTV, I am kind of stuck here anyway. And, DISH sucks, but that is beside the point. DTV DVRs suck a lot worse than they did a few years ago, too. That HR24 sometimes takes a minute to display the guide, with all that app crap shoveled into it. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. If it gets much worse, Netflix here I come.
