Anyone know if those small Genie receivers that they are deploying are convertible from IR to RF? Any issues with shoving those things behing displays?

Not sure on the rf, But the thing is pretty big. It's about the footprint of the HR24 (or bigger) and twice as tall.

Do you mean the main Genie receiver or the smaller clients. The Genie is an HR-34 and is ir and rf. the last DirecTV roadshow that I went to said that the clients were RF ONLY. I have my first Genie and client install scheduled tomorrow so will give you more details then.

Client is IR controllable for sure, did it yesterday. It also has a USB port so I'm hoping it takes RS232 as well. Didn't try that yet.

Hmmm, RF only. Time to figure out IP, or is 232 an option for the HR34?

the clients are shipped with the RF remotes. The Rf ant. is built in the unit itself. they will support both IR and RF....they are very easy to hid behind a screen

Genie, clients... Don't these things have model numbers so we can KNOW which receiver you're talking about? Apparently there's more than one client, and maybe they work slightly differently. Model A does this, B does that....
We can't give you a good answer, or maybe any, without the make and model of everything.

I'm controlling my HR34 using serial control (and a USB to serial converter).

I hope I get the C31s, with the HR34.

DTV subcontractor may balk at my request to position the dish on the back of my house. May have to hire a different subcontractor, fortunately I know some good ones.

They have to give you the C31 clients....unless they are charging you $99 for each H25?

Has anyone verified if the IR code is still the same as the older series H20, H23 etc?

Yes they will do both out of the box as long as the installer provided an RF remote with it. Turn the remote over and look for the FCC sticker
