New Genie Receiver, 4 other receivers now need a PIN to sync

Installed a new Genie Receiver now my 4 other receivers ask for a 4-digit PIN to apply. What is the procedure on applying this PIN to these receivers?

At the main genie:  Menu>settings and help>settings>whole home>manage clients>add clients.  If your minis are wireless you will also need to press the dash (below the 7).  Leave the genie on the pin screen while you enter the pin at each mini...same pin for all.  When you are asked to name the location tack on the last 3 characters of the mac address which is on a sticker on the mini itself.  This will help you identify it if you ever need to replace one.  Once they are all added, select done on the genie and exit.
