Can I switch the connection of Genie boxes between my rooms?

When my husband and I hooked up with DirecTV we hooked up 3 TV's. One in our living room, one in our bedroom, and one in my son's room. I didn't realize it at the time but somehow the main connection/Genie is in my son's room. Is there a way to switch the boxes between the rooms. I want the main Genie/box/connection in my living room or my bedroom.

Yes you can move it (Just a take Picture of the location Before you move it)  Then Find where all your wiring Comes into the house from the DISH - The room it's connected to NOW (RG6) -where ever you move it That needs to be connected to the same SWM Wiring block port as it was (only to the NEW room) as it may or may not supply power to the LNB.

I let my husband know what you said and he said he can do that. Thank you for your quick response and your help in resolving the issue.
