Genie Mini Client
Posted 31 March 2013 - 06:41 PM
And on the Genie Mini Client. Can it use WiFi or do I need a coax run upstairs to the bedroom?
What about cost, how much are the mini clients and would this only be $3.00 more for whole home, or 3.00 and another receiver charge monthly for the mini client?
Sorry for the newbie questions but I'm late to the whole house DVR DirecTV solution.

The clients need a single coax. It connects like a regular receiver (non-DVR) but you get full access to the Genie server.
No single answer on cost. You have to call to get a price on the equipment and you might read through other threads to compare pricing.
The clients cost the same per month as regular receivers.

The cost for the Genie and any other installation required is highly variable (anywhere from zero to several hundred dollars) depending upon your current contract status, your payment history and other factors. You'll need to call to see what your final costs would be.
