Default Upgrade to Genie

Call directv to hassle with pricing, anyway long story short they offer
the genie for free with a 2 year contract, i have 2 dvrs now and have heard the genies have problems so if you where me what would you do i have been with direct 14 years because of the nfl sunday ticket and also was able to get some better deals on my package.Also i think one of my dvr is having a hard drive issue because it is getting loud and i have to cut off sometimes and back on so i can change the channels.

If they're going to send a tech out to install the Genie then you can insist on an HR44 or refuse the install. They will probably only have 44s anyway. The older HR34s are the ones with the problems. The HR44 is a great unit, go for it!

They will send an Installer out -just as well as they will go over your existing system and make sure it's up to the task.
I would keep What you have and add the Genie (or) replace the HDDVR That makes Noise with the Genie - You will get a HR44 - While you wait try this on your Noisy HDDVR - From the menu -go to search (type in) CleanmyBox - as a Key word then do a search on Cleanmybox -see if that helps
