Hmm, after futher research, I'm tempted to go this route: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=109&cp_id=10110&cs_id=1011012&p_id=8123&seq=1&format=4#feedback&ref=cj I could put the Genie Mini in a room that does have coax and ethernet, and then use an HDMI/IR extender in any room that only has ethernet. It's a little pricey, but probably cheaper than hiring an electrici...

Unfortunately no. Townhouse, middle unit. I still may talk to an electrician to see if there's any way to "properly" run a new coax line through the walls and to the room I want. Thanks again for your help.

Yeah, sorry, don't mean to be argumentative. I'm just frustrated that there's no way to utilize an existing ethernet network. I ordered an extra (third) Genie Mini client box at the time of my installation and committed to the 2-year contract for it, even though the installer wasn't able to hook it up without coax in the room. I took the gamble that I'd be able to find a ...

Yet they are working on wi-fi support?

See, this makes even less sense to me. Third-party TVs are able to hook into my whole-home DirecTV setup with only an ethernet connection, but DirecTV doesn't offer a way to do this themselves with their own dedicated clients? In general I never want to rely on built-in software in a TV. Having a separate client device gives you much more flexibility. If I could just plug...

OK, thank you for the fast reply. Disappointing, but at least now I know. To be honest, I don't understand why they would work on a wireless client before even adding ethernet support. I never like to rely on wireless for video streaming.

Is there any way to "bridge" from ethernet to coax? My Genie HR44-500 is connected to my home network via ethernet already. I have one room that I would really like a TV/Genie Mini C41 client in, but the room only has an ethernet port and no coax available. And there's no easy way for me to run coax to this room, especially given that I'm in a townhome and somewhat restri...
