    I’m wanting to add a tv via a c41W and noticed I have to install a Wireless Video Bridge.
    I only have one TV right now, with an HR44 Genie. My question is this, do I need anything like a splitter? Do i just connect the WVB to the coax coming from the SWiM and use the pass through port on the WVB to then connect the Coax to the HR44?
    Thanks!

    BTW side note, does anyone know where to get a WVB Gen 2?

    If you are getting it from Directv they'll install anything you need to make the wireless client work.

    I installed a WVB myself and used the pass-through method. No splitter.
    Works fine for me.

    ok that's cool...
    has anyone been able to get WVB Gen2? the manual is on the directv site and it is a huge upgrade(main feature is it uses wireless a/c instead of n)

    That only matters for newer clients that actually use 802.11ac. The C41W doesn't, the C61W probably does but where it would really matter would be with the forthcoming C71KW which can do 4K wirelessly.
