How do I convert my Genie Lite into a Genie HD DVR and enable DVR capabilities?

If you already have a Genie Lite, you can convert it into a Genie HD DVR by adding an external hard drive called the Genie Lite HD DVR Kit. You can order the kit online or by calling us at 1-800-531-5000. Once it’s paired with your Genie Lite, you’ll be able to enjoy full HD DVR functionality on every TV in your home.

An additional Advanced Receiver Service (ARS) fee or DVR Service fee is required, depending on when you started your DIRECTV service. Please sign in to your DIRECTV online account for more information on ARS and DVR Service fees.
