Genie Upgrade w/o Install
Currently am not under contact and have 2 HR24-500s and 2 H24-700s w/ whole home DVR. SWiM install with an 8 port switch. From what I gather everything I have (dish/switch) is Genie ready.
If I call to get upgraded will I be able to have the equipment shipped to me or will it require an install tech to come out? Really don't have time to be at home for an install and I most definitely can complete the install myself.

No, you will need a tech. You already have six tuners and the Genie will make 11 in total. That probably means a replacement LNB at the dish, four cables to the house and an SWM16 multiswitch. And I suspect you don't have an 8-port switch, you probably have an SWM LNB and an 8-way splitter.
