    Ok So I have 3 Premieres and a Stream now.

    I am moving into a new house in 3 weeks and I am all about jumping to Direct TV. Mostly because i dont like my cable company. I do like my Tivo's but i need a lot of boxes and I think sticking with Tivo is Cost prohibitive.

    With Direct TV

    I Plan to get a
    Genie(Living Room)
    HD DVR(Master bed)
    genie client(Kids Room)
    genie client(Kids Room)
    Regular HD Box(kids room)
    regular hd box(office)

    Total Tuner count is 9 with 7 that record

    I would like to shift to a Roamio and some minis. But debating how to do it.

    Total Monthly cost with Direct would be 80 for the first year and 123 after.

    My current cable bill is 100 including the Monthly Tivo fee's.

    I think I would need a Roamio, Roamio Plus and 4 mini's to match what i want with Direct TV

    Biggest Plus Direct TV has is the unified playlist among the DVR's..

    Genie is a solid dvr. I switched back to comcast because of a great deal they were offering. They also had the new x1 dvr platform. This was the worst POS that has ever been put on the market. We just changed to the tivo Roemio and mini and love it.
