How many rooms can I have connected at the same time to my Genie Lite + DVR kit?

Genie Lite can be connected to a maximum of 8 separate rooms, providing full DVR functionality and DIRECTV programming for each connected TV. However, only 4 TVs (including the one that’s connected to the Genie Lite) can be viewing live or recorded content at the same time. If your household is watching in 4 rooms simultaneously, the TVs in rooms 5 - 8 will display a maximum active room limit message, which advises turning off one of the other Genie Minis or DIRECTV Ready TVs to enable service in the room where you now wish to watch. If you expect to have more than 4 TVs in use at the same time, we recommend getting separate HD DVRs (non-Genie) for those extra TVs.
