    Hi all,

    I tried searching for this and could not find an answer maybe someone here can help!

    I have a few C51-100 mini receivers left over from my old DTV. I no longer use the service and DTV does not want them back. My mother has DTV and she has an old SD receiver (along with one HD receiver).

    My question is, can I swap out her old SD receiver and replace it with one of the C51-100s? Or does that little guy need to be paired with a Genie?

    Thanks in advance!

    The C51-100 is a "Genie Mini Client". All "Genie Mini Clients" require a Genie.

    eCycling is your best option.

    that's a mini client for the genie. i would ecycle em. direct dose not sell the genies at all there all leased units. if your mother ever wanted to upgrade it would more than likely be better for her to to a new two year and get newer hardware with how techs changing anyways
