Genie not recording 5 shows at once.

I just hooked up with DTV and got a genie, no minis, only have 1 TV. I know, WHAT? I'm more than happy with 1 TV. Anyway, I've never had a DVR before either. When I go to record shows (Mostly Starz or HBO on demand ) it puts them in a queue to be recorded. It does not record 3 or even 2 at a time. Is it because of the types of shows I'm trying to record or because I don't have any minis hooked up?

OnDemand shows are actually downloaded via your internet connection and have nothing to do with the Genie DVR's five satellite tuners.  Only one OnDemand show can download at a time.  But you can set up five simultaneous recordings from satellite channels.

Thanks for the fast reply. When you say satellite channels, I assume you

mean anything other than on demand? vs something to do with the

satellite tuners..... Yeah I know, I have no idea what I'm doing.

Correct.  "Satellite channels" are the channels that you tune to with your DirecTV Receiver.  For example, ESPN on Ch206.   These use the Genie's satellite tuners.   "OnDemand" shows and movies are downloaded via the Genie's internet connection and don't use a satellite channel/tuner.
