Use of genie in rv without internet connection?

I am trying to set up a genie system in my 5th wheel. In my other I used wired with my swm but I have more tv's now. Can the genie system work without internet or with minimal data usage from cellular service?

All DTV receivers work without internet, you will just lose On Demand start from the beginning and paying for PPV with the remote.

Internet not required. Just for On Demand, ordering PPVs by remote, using Pandora.

 

Mini Genie Clients will not work without the main Genie. I mention this as a common question was people trying to take one of the Minis when they traveled and leaving the main unit at home.

 

It is highly recommended to NOT connect any Directv box to any kind of internet that has data caps or metered (overage or having your speed throttled when cap is reached).

I was planning on using the dvr base with 2 mini's. Can that be done without internet or with minimal data usage from cellular?

You can use any Directv receiver box without internet.
