They make an RCA cable to coax converter. Just do a search on google. Bestbuy has them. Hope this helps.

Even though the newer receivers lack a coax output, you may be able to use the existing coax to move the SWM signal itself around your RV. That would mean that you would need to have receivers or mini-Genie clients in those other locations, but at least you would be able to get signal to those places.

Alternatively, you could install a Genie as your main receiver and use wireless mini-Genie clients in your secondary locations avoiding the need for coax entirely.

BOB - I received a letter in the mail from direct tv that in April the old rg6 boxes will not work and to contact direct tv for the new boxes. Somebody told me that the new boxes are HDMI. I was wondering what about our tv's that are not HDMI.

I just switched myself to H-24's, but they don't record, But the HR24's do...and both accept a coax in and HDMI out to tv....I got mine from Direct as they're the same price no matter where you look....
