    I originally had one LG 4K set (70UH6350) hooked up via wireless Don't know why C41W-100 miniGenie. It works just fine.
    I just got a 2nd 4K/HDR set (LG 65C8) connected by an existing 2nd wireless mniGenie. but even after setting the Video to all formats including 4K it won't acknowledge that as available for the new set.

    any Ideas or do I need to call DirecTV and have them change configurations????

    4K service requires either a HR54 or HS17 server. Both require C61K-700 clients.

    C41W is not a 4K box. You need a C61K Mini Genie, and it's not wireless.

    Also, what Genie DVR model do you have?
    The HR54 can only stream 4K to one C61K Mini. The HS17 supports two.

    You aren't getting 4K on the first TV, so you aren't any worse off on the second one.

    well the 1st TV is a 4K set and Amen Corner looked way sharper on 105-106 than CBS network coverage..

    If you were able to watch 105 or 106, you must have a C61K - and you have not told us that. In order for us to help you, you need to tell us exactly what you have and how you have it all connected.

    sorry, so I could swap the 2 miniGenies and get 4K on the better OLED set.
    I'll double check the DVR model when I get home tonight..

    And thanks for all the advice...

    As litzdog911 said, unless you have an HS17 you can only have one 4K mini. If you have an HS17, you will need 2 C61K's.

    If you don't have an HS17, then you likely only have 1 C61K, and perhaps the 1 C41W you mentioned in your OP. Only the C61K will give you 4K if that is the case.

    Put a c61k on each TV. You can play all but 4k on each set at the same time.
    You can also watch a 4k program on 1 TV and another resolution on the other TV.
