I have a room that I would like to put a tv in. The problem is it is impossible to run a coax to that room. Does Directv offer a tuner that connects wirelessly to my existing service? The room is in a condo

I was thinking of getting a Slingbox but that would require me to watch the same channel that was on the main TV.

A workaround for you would be to use a Client (C31) that is hooked up to a wireless-CCK. A few people have done that. It is definitely not a supported setup though.

and the success of this method vary widley on many factors, such as house construction materials a this can affect your wireless network range also having too many devices in your LAN can have negative effects as well

Nothing is "impossible", if your worried about looks I could likely carpet fish a line into the room. It wouldnt be free.

I was looking at a video about the wireless cck. I'm guessing the c-31 hooks up to that to give you a full channel lineup. I'm a little baffled as to why it would be unsupported though since all the componants are Directv. If it's the answer to what I'm trying to accomplish the issue of it being a supported setup or not will not matter if I don't have any other choice. The condo is my brother in laws in Florida. He just got Directv. The main TV was not an issue but trying to get it hooked up in the bed room is turning out to be a pain. The installer told him he would have to take down part of his ceiling and recomended a contractor for the job. We are trying to avoid that route.

It's unsupported because DirecTV probably wants a C31 connected to the SWiM via coax - the RVU connection slows things down as it is and then add wireless on top and there can be issues. That said, works very well for me. What kind of wireless signal is there in the desired location? How about other networks interfering?
