I just got told by Directv customer service that this was not possible and I don't believe them so I decided to try here. I apologize for not trying to find this exact configuration anywhere before just asking, hoping someone could just give me a yes or no to start.
I have 3 HD DVRs, 1 HR34 and 2 HR24s in 3 different rooms. They all have direct satellite coax connections. They all have ethernet connections to my FIOS wireless router. Everything works great and the HD DVRs all network together to view each other's playlists. In addition, I have a strong wireless N signal from my FIOS wireless router throughout the house.
I want to add a 4th flat screen in an exercise room where I do not have an ethernet cable or a satellite cable and don't want to pull one. I don't care if I just 'extend' what is being veiwed in another room, or if I actually put another receiver in this spare room. I would hope that there is a way I can connect something to my 4th room flat screen and wirelessly connect back to one of the other DVR outputs, or to the satellite feed if it is another DVR. Directv says this is not possible, and that it is in 'beta'.
Can anyone explain what my options are? There must be a diagram or white paper somewhere that lays out how to connect this and what products I need?
Thanks for your help!
