Question about wiring when moving
Posted 01 October 2012 - 11:11 AM
Do I still need two coax lines run for each dvr? The living room won't be a problem. Its a straight drop to the basement but the upstairs room is where I think I'll run into problems. It looks like to me when they first built the condo that the coax cable instead of dropping from the room to the basement on an interior wall, goes up, through an attic space and down and exterior wall to the basement. Seems like it would be real tough to run coax again. So I was hoping just to use the existing coax in that room. Can that be done?

The bigger issue is mounting the dish and getting the single cable from the dish to the interior.

You won't be able to use the same coax for anything related to cable (tv or internet), so be sure to figure out everything you have and how it runs before disconnecting anything that you might want to keep.

The distinction between condominium and townhouse is important. Most condos have Rules and Regulations that favor whatever carrier got to them first (usually cable TV).
I should be good on mounting the dish, 2 of the 4 condo's, I guess townhome really, already have a dish.
