    i am getting the genie 2 with 2 more 4K mini's
    one of the t.v's is not 4K if i have the tech disable the 4K on the mini that's hooked up to a non 4K tv will there still be handshake issues???
    does it matter where the genie 2 and the power inserter are in the system as well

    You can’t disable the 4K on the mini If the TV is not 4K the mini will just default to the highest resolution it supports and you won’t be able to watch the 4K channels And Not really on the second part

    Will they even put a C61K on a TV that isn't 4K?

    Since your TV wont support 4K that resolution would automatically be greyed out

    You still wont own it, and will pay $7 a month for the privilege to use it.

    i can handle the 7.00 outlet fee. but i can't swallow hundreds of dollars for stuff i don't own. now if i destroyed it beyond normal wear and tear that's different..

    but only those what C61K will allow you change, after its negotiation with the TV via HDMI protocol;
    also, just in case - if the TV is UHD/4K kind but don't support HDCP 2+, C61K will not allow to check/uncheck 4K box

    The policy says NO, technicians are not to install them on a tv that doesn't support 4k. The real answer is it depends on the tv, if its a newer HD tv that likely won't have HDMI issues (handshake) they will likely install it, if its an older HDTV or off brand and likely to have issues they likely won't install it.

    I have a C61 client hooked up to my 4K tv but, I don't have 4K service /reciever. My reciever is the HR44. The C61 works fine. It may do the same in your case .

    The C61 (HD capable, introduced five years ago) is not the same thing as a C61K (4k capable, introduced 2.5 years ago).
