How is my Genie Lite different from a Genie HD DVR or an HD receiver?

Genie Lite is an HD non-DVR receiver, but, unlike our previous-generation H2X models, it can be easily converted to an HD DVR when paired with the Genie Lite HD DVR Kit. The Genie (Model HR34 or later) is an HD DVR, with the DVR capabilities built-in. Also, Genie Lite comes with a built-in DIRECTV CINEMA™ Connection Kit (Wireless) for simple, self-connection to your home Wi-Fi network, and the Internet. Genie Lite also differs from a regular HD non-DVR receiver because it supports both DIRECTV Ready TVs and Genie Minis.
