Equipment - DirecTV

#1
What DirecTV equipment is required for my Samsung "DirecTV ready" HDTVs?

I've been told one Mini Genie, two Genie Mini with one Big Genie, one Genie Mini with one Big Genie..... and no Genie Mini or Big Genies at all since both of my TVs are DirecTV ready. I also use the Samsung built in apts for Netflix and Amazon Prime and so far, no buffering issues. I have also been told that using the DirecTv boxes are the best bet because the hardware is easily interchangable whereas if I have a glitch with the Samsung DirecTv app, it could become a bit more difficult problem to resolve. Can someone please help. The Vodka bottle is heading to empty.
