Do you really mean uverse? This is the Directv forum, uverse is a different service and different forum.

Wireless video bridge (WVB) is an accessory for DirecTV.

You've posted in the DirecTV forum.

If you want help with U-Verse, post in their forum.

Ok, you do have DirecTV. Thanks for clearing that up. Your last post is a bit garbled, so let me see if I understand it correctly.

You are asking if the big box behind the TV is the wireless video bridge (WVB). What is the model number on it?

What model Genie do you have? As a note, it is an advanced HDDVR, not HD DVD. (records on internal hard drive and does not use an external disc).

Your "Genie mine" is a Mini Genie Client. If it is model C41W or C61W then that is the wireless model that connects to the WVB. The wireless range between WVB and Mini Genie is up to 80 ft in ideal conditions. At 96 ft you are too far and would need a wired connection instead.

You may need to add another WVB to so it will be closer to the mini.

Keep in mind that adding another WVB it still needs to be wired on the coax. So if you are just adding a TV, or simply moving to what would be the furthest ever location, I would considere a wired Client (receiver/HDDVR preferably) instead for more reliability.
