Moving receiver/DVR and protection plan
Posted 22 April 2012 - 03:09 AM
I have a spool of RG6 cable and I could also do it myself by running the lines along the edge of the room to the new location but I am curious if this move is covered before I go and buy cable trays and covers.
The living room and dining room are open to each other so they actually make one large room really. This is a condo duplex unit and this is how these rooms are. So the move is literally simple across the room.

Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.

The Protection Plan will not cover that. That is an expense that you will have to eat if you want a tech to come out and do the move for you. The PP is to get service fixed if you lose service and for replacement of detective equipment. Neither of which is your issue in this case.
I thought as such, but had to ask.

1. Shop for low voltage contractors in your area
2. Ask friends for reference's of same
3.Ask your neighbors if they have had any work done and inspect work and get a reference.
Any Electrical Contractor will install rg6 (request Solid copper core in your bid) also suggest you check your electric service in the new location - getting a Electrical Contractor you could install a 20 amp dedicated circuit as well instead of just plugging into a (possible) over loaded 15 amp circuit (other stuff usin the same circuit in your home).
