This is not a new DVR. This is nothing but the HR34 with a new name and a firmware update to include the Genie feature. This DVR has been available for about a year now, I’ve had one since February. Those that download the CE beta firmware on their HR34s have had the Genie feature for a while now.

I just signed up for DirecTV today. Had reps at Sam's Club plugging the Genie and they ambushed my Wife and I. Is it good? I'm coming from Time Warner Cable/Tivo Premiere so I don't know anything about all of the different HD-DVRs and such. Hoping we made a good choice at getting the Genie. Thanks in advance.
