I plan on getting a new tv stand.


Nope no crawl space since I have people living under me.

That's a problem, gonna have to come thru an outside wall then. Back corner bring behind-then under couch and coffee table then throw a rug over exposed cable. Sounds pretty fly by night but seems the choices are limited.

Through outside wall and down under wall to wall carpet (not a rug) across to area where TV will be. You can do the under carpet yourself with a flexible fiberglass extension pole made for that purpose.

I'm having a hard time invisioning this.
But yeah I'm thinking bringing the cable through the outside wall would be best, just installers won't run a cable across a walkway.
I am not sure how to do it under carpet without damaging anything.

There's no way to get wire to where the TV is currently located, the installers aren't going to run cable under the carpet. Best to move the TV to an outside wall.

Maybe have them bring the wire from the top floor room and down.

I see UVerse ran their cable across and I think they might be able to do the same with the rg6 cables.

No wires
Use a C41w wireless client with a Genie base receiver

Doctor j

Still need to install the genie receiver somewhere, I guess upstairs has to do to put the main genie and down stairs the crappy slow genie. I guess that will have to do.

Another reason why the Directv installer will not install your dish.

The only solution you got is to go under the carpet.

Hmmm, under the carpet? A bit worried an RG6 would be sticking out too much no?
I think I'll go for the clean look and have the main receiver upstairs and the wireless downstairs so it would make things easy and practical for the installer. Then I can always have someone do some custom work for me later down the road, all I want is my damn TV service, tired of missing 3 weeks of TV shows.

Go wireless with a Genie base. Wireless client in LVR


Sent from my iPhone using SatelliteGuys

In my opinion for a living room I'd want the actual genie there because most people here agree that the genie clients totally suck!!!

Unless you have a HR54 and a 4k tv....then you would still be stuck with a Genie and pay an extra $7...
