Connecting to Genie mini via ethernet

ehz

I would like to install DirectTV accessed by three televisions.  Using the Genie DVR plus two Genie minis looks appealing. 

 

Unfortunately, one of the television locations is in an outbuilding to which there is no coax run from the main house.  However, there is gigabit ethernet between the house and outbuilding.  Is it possible to connect the Genie mini through ethernet in some way?  Is there a different client device I could use in the outbuilding to connect to the Genie DVR via ethernet?

 

I suppose an alternative is wireless Genie, however I suspect it won't work because of range and obstruction issues.
