How to install GenieGO

Print
Sure. Before you begin, make sure you have the following:
  • A wireless broadband Internet network. You'll need to know the name of your network and your username and password.
  • An available Ethernet port on your wireless router.
  • An HD DVR (model HR20 & later or R22) connected to your broadband Internet network.
    To check, press the DASH button on your remote control. If you see Internet: Not detected on your
    TV screen, click here.
  • A computer or a mobile device. View device requirements.
  • A DIRECTV online account username and password. If you haven't already, you can create an account now.
If you're all set, we can get started. First, you'll need some information about your DIRECTV setup. Is your HD DVR connected to the Internet with a Wireless DIRECTV CINEMA™ Connection Kit (pictured on the right)?
