What is the best way to enjoy HD DVR service on every TV in your home?


The best way to enjoy HD DVR service on every TV in your home is with our state-of-the-art Genie® HD DVR. With 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 or Wireless Genie Mini. This setup allows you to enjoy DIRECTV service and full HD DVR functionality on every one of your TVs, all from one Genie HD DVR.

You can also record and watch on all your TVs with a regular DIRECTV HD DVR for one of your TVs and a HD-capable receiver (models H21 or above) for each additional TV.

New Customers: To get the Genie Whole-Home HD DVR setup with your DIRECTV service, just select a Genie HD DVR and one Genie Mini or Wireless Genie Mini for each additional TV when you place your DIRECTV order. Order DIRECTV

Current Customers: Call 1-800-531-5000 to ask about getting a Genie Whole-Home HD DVR setup. If you currently have an HD DVR and at least one other HD-capable receiver in your DIRECTV system and aren't enjoying Whole-Home DVR, you can call that number to activate your system for Whole-Home DVR.
