I am considering adding a wireless genie mini to my home, I already have the Genie HD DVR, Directv tells me I need a Wireless Video Bridge, but they said they don't sell them. I see them available on ebay and amazon (they are expensive), is that my only option or is there something else I can use to connect to wireless mini to the main dvr? I hope that makes sense! Thanks.

if you're out of contract, which it doesnt sound like you are, you can usually add wireless mini's for free but have to pay the $99 + tax for the WVB. otherwise its an additional $99 for the mini itself as well. on the rare occasion D* DOES waive the $99 WVB fee, but this is much less common since AT&T took over. usually something was royally jacked up and took considerable amount of time to fix.

I've never seen an upgrade offer with wireless. But I think one of the reasons thay always charge for the WVB is that as far as I know you own it, it's not leased.

yes the WVB is owned hardware, like the GenieGo was, but i've still seen it. southern Wisconsin is pretty D* heavy don't know if that has anything to do with the available offers.

I would have kept the two hr24s, just my personal preference.
