TV is not Connecting to Genie Mini

Every time I try to watch Tv on my Genie Mini it says connecting. I tried resting the box and still does the same thing.  All of my other TVs work fine it is just this one.

Your main Genie DVR just needs to be connected to the satellite coax cable. Doesn't  matter if it's connected to a TV for your Minis to work.
