Direct TV

Before I go and waste my time, I am curious if anyone has already done this. I have Direct TV in my house. I have the Genie DVR and 4 other Genie boxes. I wonder if I can unplug one of the boxes and use it in my TT or would I have to use the DVR since it is the brain. Thanks.

You have to have the DVR.

I take one box out of the bedroom and change the settings on that box to match the dish that I am using and watch TV.

I also have the Genie DVR. I have a separate DVR that I leave in my fifth wheel all the time. It costs me an additional five dollars per month, but it is worth it not having to transport it back-and-forth to the house and reprogram it each time. When I have my camper in storage beside my garage, I have the DVR connected to a portable satellite dish just like the one I use when I am out on the road. That way I do not ever have to change the settings or reprogram it. We are weekenders only, going out 15 to 20 times a season. It isn't worth the trouble to haul that DVR back-and-forth to the house each time we go out. By the way, the DVR in the fifth wheel is not connected to the Genie in any way.

We get lots of free air TV most anywhere we go. Can watch movies and sports with computer/Netflix wand Apple TV.
