I’ve been a DirecTV customer for well over 15 years or longer. I can’t remember not having a satellite dish, so it’s been a long time. My 2yr old DVR allows for 2 shows to be recorded while playing back a previously recorded show. With all the new Fall TV shows, I sometimes have conflicts and can’t record everything I’d like to. DirecTV has just upped the ante with their new Genie DVR which allows 5 HD programs to be recorded at one time. This DVR features a 1TB drive that can store 200 hours of HD programming or 800 hours of SD programs. That is a LOT of episodes of Big Bang Theory! The Genie serves your entire home, so you can enjoy DVR service on every TV, except without needing a separate DVR connected to each TV. Pricing isn’t mentioned except that the Genie will only be available to new subscribers. That’s disappointing as I want one. Now. Read more about the Genie DVR at DirecTV.
