Do I need additional equipment to connect more than one TV to a
Genie® HD DVR?


You need one Genie Mini or Wireless Genie Mini for each additional TV. These devices are small, convenient, easy-to-hide boxes that serve as remote connections to the Genie HD DVR receiver. So in a Genie Whole-Home HD DVR setup, one of your TVs is directly connected to the Genie HD DVR and each of your additional TVs is connected to the Genie HD DVR using a Genie Mini. You'll enjoy DIRECTV service and full HD DVR functionality on every one of your connected TVs.

The Genie HD DVR also features built-in RVU technology, which allows DIRECTV Ready TVs to be connected to the Genie HD DVR as additional TVs in your setup without a Genie Mini. Click here to find out which TVs are DIRECTV Ready.
