Yes, the HR44 plus the RC71 are RF capable.  so you dont need any extenders or what not.  just set up the remote for RF

What is the model number of your genie?

What is the model number of your remote control?

You can find the model number of your remote control on the top left corner of The Remote

There is also the website http://www.waltzremote.com which will allow you to use a mobile device, computer or notebook, to control LAN connected DirecTV receivers & DVR's.  Also the DirecTV or BuddyTV apps for iOS or Android devices.
