Disclaimer: I am sure this question is answered somewhere already in this forum. Sorry if it is, I looked but couldn't find a simple (non-technical) description. My situation: I am in the middle of a remodel of our house. The walls are open (no drywall yet) and no insulation to get in the way of wiring. I would like to have my electrician run wires from the DirecTV dish on my roof to the location where I plan to install the Genie. And, I would like to wire from the Genie to the Genie Client locations (not interested in connecting via wifi). I assume that if DirecTV were to make an install visit now, without the TVs placed where they will be when the remodel is finished, then they will tell me they would rather come back when the TVs are installed (but then it will be harder to wire with the walls closed up). My questions: 1) What kind of wire and how many wires do I have my electrician run from my Slimline-5 dish to the location of the Genie base (to be)? (Any other DirecTV connectors/adaptors that happen right before or at the Genie box can be done by the DirecTV installer when the time comes). Let me know best case what to do -- we have the electrician and this is the best time to do it right. 2) What kind of wire do I have my electrician run from the Genie to each Genie Client location? One client is about 30 feet away from the Genie base, the other will be less than 5 feet away). 3) I plan to connect the Genie system to the Internet. Do I only connect the Genie to the Internet or do I also connect the Genie Clients to the Internet? Should I a run Cat5 wire from the Genie to each Genie Client location or run Cat5 from my router to each Genie client? 4) Lastly, my dish is a Slimline-5 (according to the Menu -> Settings & Help -> Info & Test -> More System Info). Will this dish work with Genie or will DirecTV have to replace? 5) Anything I'm forgetting? Thanks so much for your time.
