What are the Genie and Clients?
■The Genie is our best HD DVR ever! It is the entertainment hub of the home and shares content seamlessly with other
connected devices, also known as Clients. These Clients can be the DIRECTV Clients or other devices such as RVU-enabled
TVs, gaming consoles and Blu-ray players.
What is RVU and how does it work?
■RVU is a software technology that is built into the Genie, enabling it to act as a server for the smaller Clients.
RVU allows the Clients to access all live and recorded content from the Genie, as well as User Interface (UI) features
and broadband-based services.
What do the Clients do?
■B y definition, Clients do not contain tuners of their own. They connect to the Genie in order to access its programming,
recorded content and other DVR functionality. Youll need one Client for each additional TV unless it is RVU enabled.
Can I use a Client by itself?
■B ecause the Clients do not have tuners, they cannot receive DIRECTV programming or respond to DVR commands
without being connected to the Genie.
How many TVs does the Genie provide with DIRECTV service?
■The Genie can be connected to up to 8 separate rooms, providing full DVR functionality and DIRECTV programming for
each connected TV.
How many shows can I record and watch at once?
■Each Genie has five tuners so you can record up to 5 programs of your choice at a time. If you are recording a show on the Genie,
you can watch it at the same time in up to three other rooms. You can also play the show later in multiple rooms simultaneously.
DISH claims Hopper can record up to 6 shows at once is that true?
■The Hopper only has 3 tuners, so outside of Primetime hours you can only record up to 3 shows at once. And even with
their Primetime Anytime feature, they're forcing you to record the channels they want you to record. With Genie, you have
the freedom and power to record any 5 shows you want at once, anytime you want, all in HD.
Is DISH's Hopper compatible with RVU-TVs and game consoles?
■No, only DIRECTV's Genie is RVU-enabled. That means that Genie works with your RVU-TVs and game consoles so you
can enjoy total receiver-less TV.
