Considering a DirecTV Genie

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have 2 HD DVRs and one standard receiver. If I get a Genie, I would want to keep one of the HD DVRs that has a lot of shows on it and replace the 2 other receivers with Genie minis. If I get a new Genie, is it possible to set it up such that there is a combined playlist that includes existing shows on my old DVR with new shows recorded by the Genie?

Thanks!

Is there some special configuration that I need to ask for or will the "standard" installation allow me to view existing shows from the old DVR in the Living Room.

I should have mentioned that I plan to install the Genie in the Family Room and move the existing DVR to a bedroom.

So to summarize, existing DVR that is in the Family Room has a lot of shows that we want to watch. If I move that to a bedroom will we be able to view existing shows from that DVR in the Living Room once the Genie is installed in the Living Room?

You'll need to have the multi-room viewing on your account and the connected home networking, which is fairly "standard" these days.
