The advantage to a single box is that all the scheduling logic is in a single place. Managing recordings across multiple devices can be a PITA.

I just ordered the Genie and the Total Choice package. I am paying $35 a month for the 1st YEAR! $55 for the second year. That covers the Genie and two clients for three total HDTVs.

Also, I ordered it through Costco and got a $200 cash card to Costco.

My phone (two lines) and internet (15 down, 5 up) are through Verizon.

My total monthly bill for all three for the first year is $115. Second year $140.

Nicely done!
