Genie2 Series Manager Detail

Genie2 Series Manager Detail

I have been having problems with my Genie system and am contemplating upgrading to the Genie 2 system.  

 

While I understand the additional storage capacity and that it is now capable of recording seven shows at one time (versus five) no one has been able to tell me if the current limitation of 100 shows in the series manager has carried over into the series 2 units or if it has (hopefully) been increased.

 

It is amazing to me that no one at Directv has been able to answer what should be a very easy question.

 

Does anyone have a definitive answer??

Re: Genie2 Series Manager Detail

The HS17 Genie Server is still limited to 100 Series Recording entries.  

 

Be careful about "upgrading". Search the forum here.  Still lots of growing pains with the HS17.

Re: Genie2 Series Manager Detail

If you want more Series Recording capacity, consider adding an HD DVR to your current setup.  

 

What Genie DVR model do you currently have?  What sort of issues are you having with it?

Re: Genie2 Series Manager Detail

another limit is no other dvr's or receiver with the hs17

 

so if you have any of them, they would be replaced with minis

could eat into the 7 tuners
