My Genie gave up on me last week and I lost all recordings and settings. Is it possible to transfer from old to new Genie?

Unfortunately no. And even if you could, with a defective/dead old DVR, there would be no way to transfer them anyway. Hopefully you can find those recordings via OnDemand or as repeats and record them again.

DTV is for time shifting programs not long term storage and when the hard drive fails there is nothing you or DTV can do to recover anything from it.
