    Yes you can watch anything recorded on either one on the other. :)

    Hi Tony
    I have a Hr24 working with an HR54 and you can watch and record from both.

    I doubt you will get DirecTV to replace the minis with HR24s at no cost. But they will work just fine in your system with the Genie. If you exceed 8 tuners (which you will if you have a Genie and two other DVRs) you may need a different LNB (which the installer will replace if this is the case). You will have three todo lists, three series managers, etc. They don't integrate all in one like the Genie and minis do. You can watch any recording on any box on any other box. The HR24 can only stream to one other device at any given time. The Genie can stream to three other devices at any given time.

    Your only upgrade right now would be to 4K or swapping a client for a HR24 which would require cables being run if you don't have them already. Frankly unless your system doesn't meet your needs recording wise I'd leave it alone right now there is no real upgrade for you.
