Step 2

On your remote, press MENU, select Settings & Help > Settings > Whole-Home > Manage Client > Add Clients.

Next, enter a custom name for the location and select Save Name.

Step 7

A confirmation message will appear, select OK.

You now have two options for applying your Genie Mini settings:

a. Select DON’T COPY to apply default DIRECTV settings to the Genie Mini you just set up. Then select “”Watch DIRECTV”” or “”Browse the Guide”” to complete the guided setup.

b. Select COPY to mirror the settings from an existing Genie/Genie Mini setup in your home. Next, select the location where you wish to copy the settings from. Then select “”Watch DIRECTV”” or “”Browse the Guide”” to complete the guided setup.
