Genie or HDDVR Upgrade
I currently have five standard Directv receivers, two of which are DVR. I was offered to upgrade to the Genie 2 with five wireless receivers.
What seemed like a good deal on the surface, doesn't seem so great now that I've done some research.
Our setup is: standard receivers in each of 3 bedrooms
DVRs in living room and family room
Is it correct that if we were to switch over to the Genie 2, we could only use 3 clients at a time? That just wouldn't work for us, as we often have 4-5 tvs going at once.
I'm thinking I might prefer to go the HDDVR and standard HD receiver route. I hate that I have to switch any of this, as I couldn't care less about HD. I also am frustrated that Directv can't ship equipment to me, but only can schedule an installation. We are capable of installing ourselves, and it is a huge hassle for various reasons to have someone come to the house.
I appreciate any insight or advice.
