I recently upgraded my primary dvr to the Genie hr34 and moved my old hr21 upstairs. I don't really have an easy/wife-approved way to have a wired connection to the 21 upstairs and at the moment I don't really have an urgent need for it. However, I am paying the $3 monthly whole home fee and I'd like to be able to make it worth my while. Is there anyway to set up a wireless connection to the 21 or do I just need to get the genie mini for that tv? It's really not used much so I don't want to go to a lot of expense and effort to do so, at least not now so I'm just trying to figure out all the options.

 

The GenieGo concept seems appealing to me and could be beneficial for our weekend trips out of town. I wasn't able to find a lot of user comments on the GenieGo so I was either not using a sufficient search parameter or there aren't a lot of people using it. Is it worth it's cost or should I wait for an updated version. Just curious what's people's thoughts are on it.

 

Thanks.

Is there no coax connected to your HR21? If so, connect a DECA to it. You don't need internet to it. You can connect the net to the 34 and it basically gives both a connection.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

That seems easy enough. Forgive my ignorance though, but what is the difference between that one and this one: http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=deca1mr01&d=directv-ethernet-coax-adapter-deca--%28deca1mr01%29

 

The descriptions seem similar, but not completely.

The black one is newer and smaller.

They are technically the same aesthetically different

Thanks. Think I'm clear on the DECA issue.

 

Regarding the GenieGo, I have an HD connection kit for my iPad2 that allows me to view certain things (ie. Netflix) on a TV rather than watching on the small iPad screen. If I'm on the road can I watch recorded content from my DVR on the remote TV by using the GenieGo app on my iPad?

The DirecTV app does not support AirPlay, but you can use the "mirroring" function

where you iPad screen is mirrored to your TV, instead of the actual content

On the home screen of the iPad, drag up from the center to get the 'control panel'.   Select 'Airplay' and assuming you have an airplay device, select it and you'll see the 'mirroring' button.
