I would like to move my tv across the room but I don't want to have all that cable all around the room.Is there any way too run this wireless? FYI, I have the gateway system.
You won't be able to connect through wireless here. If you do not want to run a cable we would need a technician to install a new cable outlet where you will be placing your TV. If you'd like further assistance with setting up an appointment for this, let us know!
Thanks Jeff. I was afraid of that. Oh well lol
Actually, there is. If you use the HDMI (High Definition Media Interface) cable between the portal and the TV, you can purchase a pair of wireless HDMI transceivers on Amazon, they are around $250 each. This will probably work, however you are still faced with pointing the remote at the portal to change channels and for other functions, which may not be desirable.
You can do a similar thing by purchasing an long HDMI cable, which will also be expensive (avoid Future Shop, and Best Buy, etc, they are grossly overpriced), however you still have the same where-to-point the remote issues.
Thanks so very much. Those are good suggestions but (1) like you say, it would be inconvenient to change channels & (2) the price you quoted for the wireless parts are way out of my price range. Oh well here I go again with 30 -50' of coax, but I have a great stapler that has a cable guide to prevent running a staple into the cable. Thanks guys so much.
Make sure that you use RG-6 not RG-59 cable, as the frequencies used by MOCA (media over cable architecture, which is how the gateway talks to the portal), are above the highest cable frequencies and at the top end of what RG-6 can handle. If you use RG-59 you will have virtually no signal left after about 10 ft.
