So, I have a genie and 3 mini wireless clients, and the system has been great for me. An occasional freezeup but nothing bad. My contract ends in 5 days, and I'm looking to add rooms and readd discounts to my bill that are expiring. I called yesterday to loyalty and tried to add 2 wireless genie boxes, but he said it kept forcing him to add contract. He put me on hold, and got a tech on the line, and he said I cant have more than 3 wireless boxes which is why it was really blocking the order, but he could send me wired clients no problem. He mentioned the 3 clients at a time, and said he could send DVRs instead. I asked if those would work where all programming would be on all boxes and he said no. We proceeded with the wired client order (for free) assured me there would be no contract at all for this, and the install is set a couple weeks out. I came home to further research and found that I can have more than 3 wireless boxes connected, just cant use more than 3 at a time, but now I'm thinking I should change the order to HR24 DVRs. It seems I can see all recordings on all DVRs, I canNOT set a recording from a DVR to record ON the genie, which is prob not a big deal. Question, can I pause rew, ff, and DELETE a genie recording FROM an HR24 DVR? Can I pause, rew, ff, and DELETE a recording on the DVR FROM the genie or genie client? If internet is only connected wirelessly to the whole home, can I access full on demand features from a DVR if it is only connected by coax cable in a basement wire nest point that feeds out to each room? (main genie is up on the main floor above the basement, but coax reaches up there now and is connected to the genie? Does ANYONE ever get this type equipment added by loyalty department without adding 2 years to contract? I was told the current order for wired clients would NOT come with ANY contract, but the email we got last night (which might be a form letter) clearly says upon receiving any new equipment, once the installer is done, I'll be required to sign a 24 month contract agreement, and early termination is $10 per remaining month. I don't plan to leave DTV, but I just hate being under required contracts.
