Now I'm looking to add another receiver for a 3rd TV in a bedroom where there's no cable coax connection (hence what I thought was a need for dropping a genie mini at that location). I could be missing something and this may be what you are recommending but I suppose I could keep my current DVR, give up the current receiver (H24-100), add the new Genie DVR and a single mini. It seems that gets me the 7 tuners with only one mini 'stealing' one tuner from the mix.
Thanks again for the feedback on this. I'll likely DirecTV tomorrow and see what this setup will cost me compared to my current monthly bill.
We upgraded to the Genie (HR44 & Mini Genie). DTV Installer took our two DVR's. Upgrading was an excellent decision.
