Ok, the actual multiswitch must be on the roof with the Dish, so I never saw it.
I remember the Rep saying something about wireless, so I assume it's a HR44 Genie, but the way the house is, I'll still use Coax since it's there and not an inconvenience.
Each C31 watching Live TV uses one of those 5 tuners, a HR24 or H25 will not (not a huge deal), BUT are you saying the HR24 cant watch the Genie recorded shows or is difficult to access?
MRV = multi room viewing?
I dont have any lag with the whole home dvr service, I do recall people mentioning lag on the guide with the C31's though. The rep approved me for 2 C31's, I have a H25 that I OWN(not leased), so I could always switch it out and not affect my contract.
