All DirecTV boxes require HDMI.
The only wireless option is a couple models of Mini Genie Client (C41W or C61W). It is still HDMI to the TV. You have a wireless video bridge (WVB) on the coax that serves as the wireless antenna to the wireless Mini.
TV's are only wireless to your home internet for streaming options only. TV providers (satellite, cable), game consoles, DVD players, etc. are all wired to the TV by HDIM, or older A/V cables.
