We just upgraded from our old 15 year old Direct TV receiver to the new Geni 2, BIG MISTAKE. The color scheme and tiny font makes it almost unusable.
We have a fairly large room and have to get up and walk closer to the screen to read anything. The controller is a pain. It is 1/2 the size of our old one and the tiny keys make it almost unusable. We made the mistake of hooking it up to our home WiFi which has a limited data.
We did not stream anything, but the first day it sucked up 13G of our 30G monthly limit.
At least they included the option to disconnect it, but I'll never dare try to stream anything from it. I don't know who designs this stuff, but it certainly is not for the benefit of the paying customer.
Product or Service Mentioned: Directv Receiver.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
