So I have some general technical questions, more out of personal curiosity than anything, that I was hoping someone could comment on. I currently have a DirecTV HD capable satellite dish, an HR21, an H25, and a D12. First some questions about my current setup. The dish visually appears to be an AU9 SL5, although I can't find a model number on it anywhere to confirm that. It has one cable coming out of the dish, which goes to a green rectangular box with one input on one side and four outputs on the other side. The box is labeled "SWM" in large letters and I think I can see "SPLIT4" or something followed by a model number (it's tacked to the underside of an awning). These four wires go into my attic, but I can't see where. My first question is that, based on some YouTube videos I've watched, I would have thought that there would be a gray heat-sink looking box (also called a SWM?) in the loop somewhere, and that it would feed into the green SWM box that I found... but I don't see the gray box anywhere. Is that unusual, or is it just a dated setup? This becomes more important in my next question. So the next question is, is the above setup "Genie ready" or would I need to have an installer come out if I decided to order one? Now for some questions about the Genie itself: Currently, I have two separate wires coming out of my living room wall that go into the two coax inputs on the back of my HR21. I understand that with the Genie I now only need one coax going into the box, and that from that one input I essentially have multiple tuner capability (for DVR recording, PIP, etc.)... is that correct? I have read some general grumbling about the Genie not integrating well with a Slingbox, but other than some vague references to IR issues I haven't really heard what that is all about. Thoughts? I have read that the Genie GUI is "slower" than past models. I have an HR21, which is annoyingly slow. Would it at least appear faster than this? I have a multitude of tiny little boxes feeding into my HR21 (one is labeled a DECA, which looks to be a converter, which feeds into what looks like a mini wireless router of some sort that plugs in my actual router). I think that I have read that the reason the Genie is bulkier than some past models is because it integrates all of these components, and so all these extra external things would not be needed with the Genie. Is that correct? Regarding the Genie Mini Client, I can find very few explanatory details on DirecTV's website. Based on the use of the word 'client' though, and a mention of the protocol 'RVU,' from what I can surmise this thing is a wireless dumb terminal being served up from the Genie HD DVR. Does that mean that this client box does not require a coax input? If that's the case then this is very exciting as I could add more TV options around the house. Am I correct in thinking that the only input to the client needed is just simply power? If I went the Genie route the Genie Mini Clients would replace all of the additional units in my house including the D12, is that correct? I noticed that the only usable outputs on the back of the Genie Mini Client appear to be HDMI and "A/V Out." I am not sure what the heck A/V Out is... it looks like the splitter ports that were used with old camcorders way back. Can that port be used to connect up with an SD TV? Finally, do you know what the max number of Mini Clients per Genie is? Thanks if you made it this far in my post.
