I'm just confused by your post. Exactly which boxes do you have? the Genie can't force the other box resolution, so you need to tell us step by step what's going on.

If you want TV in two rooms you won't save anything by going to a Genie, since you would need a Genie mini-client in the second room and that still has the same monthly charge. If both your HR24s are...

Don't understand. An Hr44 IS a genie. Do you mean yo have one genie (Hr34 or Hr44) and one HR24 DVR?
Replacing the Genie with an HR54 and then using a C61K client will reduce your tuners to 5, but...

Rumor is that the next box will be a combined DirecTV/Uverse DVR which will be a server to multiple clients, so the HR54/C61 architecture is a taste of things to come..

You are absolutely right, but as I remember the MDU customers don't have a direct relationship with DirecTV, only with their MDU installer.

You can't do that. The satellite list does not show 110 or 119 so none of the channels on 110 or 119 will appear. It's clear he has a 3LNB dish.....and will be good to go to upgrade the LNB to...

If you have a 3LNB dish and you have done sat setup correctly, you won't see 110 or 119 in the sat screen list at all.

If you have the 110 and 119 satellites when you look at the signal strength screens then you have a 5LNB. If you only see 99/101/103 then you have a 3LNB.

If the source is still 1440x1080, the Hopper3 can't change that. Your TV is already upscaling the signal to 1920x1080 and I doubt the Hopper 3 can do any better than your TV.
