    What is RVU?    RVU is a standard that is being set by several companies to progress how electronics communicate with each other for TV, internet, and more.

    The Genie DVR acts as the server and allows the C61K to act as a client.  This makes it possible to have a completely silent box with full DVR capabilities.

    RVU Enabled require a Genie DVR to function.

    - Gainesville, FL -
    I hooked mine to Visio 70 4K TV. The picture is stunning when I play youtube 4K videos. I don't get to watch much 4K from Directv because to get the 4K channels you have to buy their most expensive package.

    I haven't had any problems with the C61K box.

    I have been watching the Olympic 4K feed from Rio. It's stunning clarity. I was watching the veins bulge in a runners arm last night.
