I need to add 2 tv's (in two rooms) to my account. I currently have a Genie Gen 3 and a Genie Mini. Should I go with 2 more Genie Minis? or Wireless Genie Minis? what about the Genie Lite?

cant add a genie lite, 1 genie per account

i would add either dvrs or receivers
adding 2 more minis will cripple the record capability of the genie

Thanks for your reply. So if I add dvrs, they would not be networked with the Genie, right?

And when you say 2 more minis would cripple the record capability of the Genie, in what way exactly?

Genie clients use a tuner from the Genie, they don't have their own tuner. Any box you add, whether a client, receiver, or dvr, will be part of the network.

Right now you have 5 tuners available on the Genie, each Adel. Client you add, uses one of those 5 total, so if you have the genie and 2 clients, that leaves you 2 to record with provided all three are being used at the same time.
