You'll need the Slimline SL3 or SL5 SWM dish. This dish uses a mast with 2" OD pole.
This LNB uses 1 single cable from the dish. Then it will use SWM splitters for the receivers. It can suport up to 8 tuners. The Genie (HR34) has 5 and then two 31 RVU clients for a total of 7.

I'll let others reply as to the 130' from the dish.

Call DirecTV and they will set up everything you need.

A C31 RVU client does NOT take one of the SWM tuner slots, so an HR34 plus two C31s is only five SWM slots. Each C31 does however use one of the C31 tuners when it is watching "live", so if both C31s are watching "live" the HR34 has only three tuners available for watching/recording.
