Before proceeding, please make sure your replacement Genie 2 (HS 17) server is installed and turned on. Each Genie Mini or Wireless Genie Mini client needs to paired to the main server individually.
Place your replacement Genie 2 server beside your non-working server. Transfer one connection at a time to the new server – except for the power cord. Plug the power cord into the replacement server, then into a power outlet.
After a few minutes, the ADD CLIENT button on the of your Genie 2 server will flash green.
Go to the nearest TV connected to a Genie Mini (or Wireless Genie Mini) and turn it on. If you see WIRELESS CONNECTION LOST on the screen, continue with these instructions. If not, skip to Step 3.
Once connected you’ll see SATELLITE DISH SETUP on screen. You can activate your Genie 2 server online or by calling our automated activation line.
Heads up: You’ll only need to activate the Genie 2 with the first TV/Genie Mini client. To add additional clients, proceed to Step 4.
You need to pair each Genie Mini to the new server, even though the location may have been previously set up.
Note: The ADD CLIENT session (indicated by the flashing button on your Genie 2 server) times out after 60 minutes. To add more clients/TVs, press the ADD CLIENT button again for more time.
