Thanks for the response. I guess I am just displaying my ignorance but I thought that my use of the term "DTV" describing my other recorders and the term "Genie" made Directv evident. Perhaps the "d" might have stood for "digital" rather than "direct" and maybe there are a few recorders called "Genie." My bad.
I am always entertained by a reference to a thread to answer a question as if one has been somehow less than diligent in asking the question rather than researching. I guess it keeps the forum cleaner to segregate questions but asking a questionon page 65 of an old thread certainly doesn't speed finding somebody who has the answer. Anyway thanks for the help.
