When I originally got DirecTV we put the Genie and WVB in our master bedroom because that was the shortest run of coax from the dish which is almost directly above. The WVB feeds two other TVs, one in the kids' playroom (directly below on the first floor) and the living room, which is on the 1st floor clear on the other side of the house. The tech at the time mentioned that the signal was weak, but it worked fine. I don't have a particularly large house either-2600SF. For two years we had no issues whatsoever, but now the living room TV just flashes "Connecting..." continuously. If I move the Genie Mini around it will go from solid red to flashes of green briefly, but that's it. I tried resetting both the Genie and the Mini multiple times to no avail. Nothing has been moved or changed, I haven't constructed any lead-lined walls between the bedroom and the living room, etc... I suppose I could try a longer HDMI cable to see if I can get it close enough to the Genie to get a signal, but I'm wondering if the Mini itself went bad?
