I currently have a HR24-100 HDDVR located in my living room and H25-700 in my bedroom. Both receivers can access the DVR. My issues is that I can only record and/or watch up to 2 shows at once. My requirement is to record 3 shows while watching 1. i'd also like the option to access my DVR recordings through the laptop.
I talked to DirecTV today and it seems that the Genie + GenieGo would solve my issues but they want $299 for the Genie and an additional $99 for the GenieGo. $400 is more than I am looking to shell out.
Are there any alternative/cheaper options? I'd be okay with 3rd party assuming it's not too difficult to setup.
