Is it possible to get DirecTV on a TV in a room without a DTV box in it?
We recently closed in a room and want to put a TV in it. Instead of getting another box from DirecTV and paying an additional $5/month for it, we would like to use the signal from an existing TV in the room.
I had a friend that did this about 10 years ago and it worked just fine. You have the same show on each TV, but that is not a problem for us.
The problem and question is how do we do this. The room does not have a cable outlet so we would have to get one installed if it is even possible. We do not want to do this to save money (we already have 6 boxes that we rent each month).
I tried searching the net, but could not find much except for the X10, but it seems that you could only send just a PPV movie or maybe just one channel. It would be nice to be able to change channels while in the other room.
The TV signal was shared through a wireless signal.
Based on where the new room is, I cannot run a cable to it, so splitting the cable from the box is out of the question.
I was hoping to be able to somehow send the signal from the box to the other TV (maybe wirelessly).
This is what I found online and looks pretty good:
I guess I cannot post URLs... The site is X10 and can beam the signal wirelessly.
