Besides running a very long cable from my Genie to the outside TV, or paying the obscene amount of money to get the new C41W installed, is there a way to run a wireless setup with any 3rd party adapters?

I had a customer 6-7 months ago whose son was using some device from RocketFish that was sending HD video from HDDVR to tv located in another room wirelessly. Check the internet or try Best Buy. There are plenty of devices that will send SD wirelessly. Read the reviews. Personally, I'd pay more for something that works with less issues.

The problem with most of the cheaper HDMI wireless setups, is that you run into sub-par HD video. There are some good ones out there, but cost around $500 or more. Can you possibly pull Cat-6 for HDMI over Ethernet Wiring? You would need a MUX (Multiplexer), to allow you to split the feed from the Genie to the other or multiple locations, but that may be the best way to go.
If you go to Video Equipment Wireless HDMI Systems at Markertek.com the Gefen is really the only one that I would go with. There is also the HDMI over Coax setups, if you can or already have Coax at that location Amazon.com: hdmi over coax: Electronics

While there are many devices that does HDMI over wireless, they tend to be very expensive and their results may vary.
At this point, I would not even consider the C41w as their are not ready for prime time yet and their not available in all markets yet.
a good hard wired connection is your best bet

I really just want to be able to bring a TV outside once or twice a week and watch TV. I don't need anything permanent. Is there an easy way to do this? It is a long run though from my closest Genie to the patio.

OK, i am good with just carrying out a receive and TV. Forgive me for being ignorant. What does it mean to run a jumper? What does that entail/what do I need to get to do that?

I think it means to get some RG6 coax long enough to reach the patio and a barrel connector to connect the new coax to the existing coax to extend the run to the patio.

Thank you all for your help with this, I really appreciate it! I went to Best Buy and found the IOGEAR Wireless 3D AV Transmitter and Receiver. Easy to setup and it streamed the audio and video in HD from our family room to our outside patio with no issue.
