    I have a question that may be dumb, but I'm going to ask it anyway. I am so in love with my hr-34 (Genie) that I do not want to do anything to hurt it, and that is where my question comes in. I watch t.v. lets say from 3 in the afternoon until 3 at night, every day. During this time I am also playing "words with friends" on my iphone. So as I am watching t.v. I will get an alert that it is time for my move, so I put the t.v. on pause and I pick up my iphone and usually take between 2 and 10 minutes to make my move, put the iphone down and boom I get another alert that it's my move, so this goes on and on the whole time. Am I hurting my Genie or some how wearing it out faster by continuously pausing the t.v. then playing then pausing?? I don't want to do anything wrong to hurt the genie, any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

    Not hurting it at all, that's what the machine was make for.
