Genie, available only from DIRECTV, is a state-of-the-art Whole-Home HD DVR that lets you enjoy full HD DVR service in every room of your home--without needing a separate receiver in every room. In a Genie Whole-Home HD DVR setup, one of your TVs is directly connected to the Genie HD DVR and each of your additional TVs is connected to the Genie HD DVR using a small, convenient, easy-to-hide box called Genie Mini. You can enjoy DIRECTV service and full HD DVR functionality on every one of your TVs in this setup.
Other features of Genie include:
The ability to record any five shows at the same time, all in HD. So no more recording conflicts.
A full terabyte of recording capacity, so you don't have to keep deleting recorded shows you want to keep in order to make room for new ones.
Genie Recommends—this is a special feature that recommends shows based on what you already watch and even to record them for you, so you can watch instantly.
RVU technology—the Genie HD DVR features built-in RVU technology, which allows RVU-enabled TVs to be connected to the Genie HD DVR as additional TVs in your setup without a Genie Mini box. How do I know if my TV is RVU-enabled?
