Since they haven't fixed the Whole Home Bug yet (4 months) and they want me to upgrade the 2 bedroom DVR's to fix the problem. Does anyone know what boxes they will make me get.?
I will loose my East - West feeds of CBS and FOX that I've had for 18 years, but I really need the whole home from my master bedroom since I can only record 5 shows on the genie.
I'm also going to cancel HBO & Showtime and I guess I should do that before I upgrade my equipment and get locked into another 2 year deal?
You can see my DVR's in my signature.
Thanks

Upgrading will not solve the whole home bug. It only applies to a system with the new GUI and additional receivers which is why AZ does not see it, and mdram because he has an HR34 which does not have the GUI.
In any case there are no upgrades to the HR series DVRs other than moving to clients which is not really an upgrade. I suggest you hold off on changing the hardwareuntil DirecTV actually fixes the whole home bug.

There isn't even a way to know If they are working on It, when I call they sure act like It's my fault. I guess I'll tell them to quit charging the 3 bucks for Whole Home and wait a while longer.
Thanks Tex

The only way a show appears on the Genie Is If I start watching It first In the bedroom for a few min. then It may show up on the List. Otherwise nothing shows up from either bedroom. Now the 2 bedroom DVR's can see each other just fine.

The update got to 72% and it shut itself off and hasn't turned back on after 45 min. Should I try and turn it on?

I talked with them today and got someone that knew what she was talking about, She said they are working on the problem and will let me know when It's fixed. Then I canceled Starz and Showtime.

Genie hard drive died yesterday lost all my recording's, In 20 years this is a first for us but I still want to cry about all my shows I didn't get around to watching. They said it would be 3 business days to get a replacement unit mailed to me ( You every notice things die on Thursday?) so I can only "watch" TV in the main room. I guess I shouldn't have griped about the bug in the new guide. lol

You can check to see if Whole Home is authorized on your server. Go to Settings - Whole-Home. It should say if its authorized. If its not you should call in and asked to have it authorized.

Since Directv requires you to have whole home it should be automatic that you get it. Probably doesn't work that way, though.
