    Don't forget other 'server' [HR44] is coming - gamma testing undergoing (based on a fact of spooling FW for it).

    A new model coming down the pipe doesn't change much; especially if it only adds the capability for one more client session or more factory-installed storage.

    Many of those who lust for one or more additional HR34 haven't expressed much interest in clients; their interests don't seem to require a more powerful server.

    This seems more like a business decision than a practical necessity.

    I received an e-mail about a "special offer" and a phone number for more information. The CSR said I could get a "whole home" system and installation for free and would only pay $3 per month for the service. He said what he was offering did not involve a new receiver, just networking and installation, but I could purchase a Genie for $599.

    Thank you, I hadn't read about that issue yet. That explains a lot.

    Really ? Then you lost a grip of the thread.

    We're talking about artificial constrain of mutli HMCs setups with one model HR34 now.
    I'm pointing: there will be other HMC model soon, so it will pop up more questions about multiple HMC devices in one account.

    You'd be wrong.
