What is DIRECTV's new GENIE?
For the last few months I have been hearing buzz about the DIRECTV Genie, the word I have been getting from a number of contacts was that it was DIRECTV's answer for the DISH Hopper AutoHop commercial skip feature. However I was sent something last night that shows this MIGHT not be the case.
So what is it?
Take a look and tell me what you think the new DIRECTV Genie is...

Just a WAG, but it looks to me that it will be a rebranded system consisting of the HR34+RVU clients, making it a direct competitor to the Hopper/Joey setup in ads.Lloyd
Receiver : Dish Network Hopper w/Sling + Hopper

Considering that I might be switching over to Directv due to loss of BTN, I'll certainly be keeping my eye on this thread.
