The Genie will work with the Trav'ler or home style antenna on a tripod but nothing else.

The Genie will *NOT* work with the Roadtrip antenna, but is does work with the Winegard or a SL3 open face portable antenna (which you can find for free).

If Winegard told you they can, they can. However, it really doesn't matter. Where ever you get it you will be "sold" a leased receiver that remains the property of DirecTV and you will need to agree to the same 2 year contract.

We have a Genie and an HR24 in our unit. And have had that combination for over 7 years. We have the Trav'ler on the roof.

We use the Genie and and H25 but I think the Genie and a client would be more effective as everything you are watching is also recorded which does not happen with our current setup. We also have a Trav'ler and it was a simple upgrade when the Genie first came out.
