Longer runs can cause a whole host of issues. Max I have done is 50 feet, I would not reccomend over 40 feet (15 meter)"lokar" said:My graphics card has an HDMI out that I use to go to my TV, I would recommend that since you can get some pretty long HDMI cord lengths although where your computer is in your house could be an issue.
You would actually be surprised at how many TVs only do wifi these days."peds48" said:what is the make and model of your TV? is rare that a "smart TV" does not have an ethernet port. making me believe that your TV does not have any streaming features. I have a Samsung TV that is not an "smart TV" but have a useless ethernet port (apparently for software updates) which it has not got any in almost year and a half since I bought it.
Many devices are capable of providing "smart" features such as roku, vudu, and many blu-ray players. HOWEVER, the only way you can get directv on your TV is through a directv box OR one of the samsungs with RVU built in (but that requires a coax and HR34 [genie])."westview" said:Maybe I did not explain my situation very well. I have a wired router. It is connected to my DVR with an erthernet cable. I can download movies from Direct. I would like to connect it to my TV. However my TV does not have an erthernet input. Could I get an adapter that would work?
