    I have it and like it just fine. I tape a lot of stuff at the same times, so it is convenient in that regard. As far as the internet being slow, I use the "smart" capacities very little so I don't really notice if it is slower or not.

    I believe you have the old genie Bucky or do you have Genie 2 I have Genie 1 or the first one whatever you want to call it and then tried the new Genie 2 it was a nightmare but a week later and many phone calls I got someone to take care of me and everything I had put back. Ask them about the Bugs and after trying to fix them for about a year why are you still getting black screens ETC: believe me it's a nightmare. I have the old Genie the first one works like a charm. Maybe they fixed it but I want no part of the Genie 2. Maybe someone else could tell you they have the Genie 2 and it's fine. I'm going back about 6 months ago. Get the updated DVR.
