The April-May 2013 issue of Sound & Vision has a less than stellar review of the Genie. It says that the Genie is slower than the HR24 and has lags when the Genie was doing "other operations". On a few occasions it took a Mini more than a minute to display a picture". Several times the Mini locked up -froze and that the reviewer had to pull the plug to reboot. "Once a recording started to macroblock and the froze. Several reboots were required during the review period." Has anyone else experienced these issues? I was about to upgrade, but I don't want more hassels.
