DirecTV Genie Question....Please Help

I have been told by several different employess at DirecTV that, YES, the Genie can be wirelss, and, NO, the Genie cannot be wireless.

We currently have an HR-22 HD Receiver in our front room, and a standard receiver in the basement. So, I know I would have to update the one in the living room.

But could the C31(?) devices be hooked to televisions in other rooms on our home network, or do I need hard wiring to each TV.

I am sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but DirecTV customer service was no help, and I have not been feeling well enough to look into it further on my own, Any help is greatly appreciated.

We really want whole home DVR service without switching to U-Verse, or having a hack come to our house and making a bunch of crappy wiring to each location.

Thanks in advance.

Yes. The client boxes need wired through a swm system.

Why not just switch to dish and get the hopper? You'd save money with a new customer offer and wouldn't have to come out of pocket for equipment.

Mine absolutely is wireless. They hook up a box to your router that connects it all.

I'm not exactly sure if I'm using the correct terminology, but they have a switch (may be what someone earlier referred to as the SWM system) that all of the DVRs connect to via existing coax. That allows each of the DVRs to communicate with each other for the whole home DVR.

Then, like The Bad Guy was referring to, they have another device that connects to your router. Coax runs from the DIRECTV switch to the device that connects to your router. That allows all of the DVRs to connect to the Internet for updates, on demand stuff, etc.

So, to answer the original question, technically it's not wireless but you shouldn't have to run any additional cabling or anything for the most part.

There is no difference between cabling for client boxes and any other receiver.

I install at least one a day.

I thought this thread was about the hot bitch in the DirecTV commercials.

Tivo brand DVR's don't work with all of Directv's features and connections even though you pay extra for them.

DirecTV has treated me like a champ. That being said, they understand my options for HD television are numerous and want my money. I currently pay $73/month for Choice Plus (250+ channels) and free Sunday Ticket. With five other options and Google fiber moving in it's a consumer orgasm.

Every receiver needs to be hooked up to the SWM switch w/ coax.
