Can I setup a Genie Mini (C41-500) in a room without a cable connection?

We are doing some home remodeling and need to make a room that does not have any TV or cable/directv connections into a room we can have TV/DirecTV. We do not want to make this room a permanent TV room, just temporary. Want to know if we can take our Genie Mini and set it up in this room?

Unless you have a wireless mini Genie, you would need a coax cable connection

C41W is the wireless mini Genie and you will need the WVB connected by coax to your SWM system if you don't already have one.
