HR54-200 vs Genie Mini vs Genie 2
I'm trying to get the most recent information regarding 4K. I currently have a HR54-200 HD DVR and a 4K Genie Mini, but both of my TVs are 4K. When I call DIRECTV, I am told that I have the most up-to-date equipment and it is not possible to get 4K on my second TV because the HR54-200 is not 4K ready. I went to a AT&T/Directv store and they said I would need a Genie 2 receiver ( the reviews look bad??) but then I can get 4K on multiple TV's. We actually have 5 TVs that are 4K, but I am mainly interested in the family room TV and the master bedroom TV. The master bedroom TV is a LG OLED 65" B8 and has the HR54-200 HD DVR and the family room TV is a Sony 75" XBR-75X940D, which is DIRECTV 4K Ready TV. It is hooked up to the 4K Genie Mini. I know there aren't too many 4K channels available, but we like the 4K UHD rental movies. Thanks.
