I have an office that I would like to put directv in, the problem is there is no coax run to that room, and the basement is finished. Is there a solution for this without cutting drywall out to run another cable?
This is from the weaknees.com blog and not sure if you need an HR44 Genie.
We don’t have a ton of information yet about the upcoming C41W – the wireless Genie Client from DIRECTV – but we’ve got some info. We have a new DIRECTV Genie C41W page on our site which will be where we’ll take orders for the item once we have an idea of when we’ll have it in stock.
This unit will work off a wireless signal from a DIRECTV wireless base station. This is NOT a Wifi adapter, nor will a Wifi adapter help or interfere. And, the Wifi built into the HR44 won’t talk to the C41W (although that can bridge internet to the C41W through the proprietary wireless connection).
The C41W will ship with the RC71 remote. DIRECTV says the C41W is expected to work through roughly five walls and 75 feet. Like all wireless products, range and signal quality will vary in every house and simply won’t work everywhere.
One wireless base station can handle all of the clients. But you will also be able to have multiple base stations to get better coverage around your installation. All base stations need to be wired into the SWM network.
More info as we have it .
when is the C41W going to be available widespread for all to obtain and use ?
the C41W is not yet available. Perhaps the cable can be run on the outside?
DirecTV does divulge this kind of information
You do understand that you would need a HR41 Genie, a C41W Client and a wireless video bridge to feed the signal to the Client? May be cheaper to run the cox behind the baseboard maybe?
the C41W works with both the HR34 and HR44
Gotcha, thanks. So the OP would need a HR34 or HR44 Genie, plus the other items.
