Hi i was wondering if the Genie comes with the new remote. My son just had his genie installed last week but didn't get the new remote they used the old one but when he called directv they sent him the new genie remote Why wouldn't they just put them in the box with the unit. just wondering i'm having my genie put in this week. Thanks
The HR34 Genie comes with the older remote, while the new HR44 Genie HD DVR comes with the new RC71 remote. But it might also depend on which remotes the installer has handy. Frankly, most folks don't care for the new RC71 remote.
