Connecting Tivo via Wireless Coax sender

Hi

I have a problem. We are converting the kitchen in our flat into an open plan kitchen/living/dining room in order to free up a room as an extra bedroom and need to move our TV and Tivo from an external wall in a room in the front of the flat into a rear room of the property on an internal wall.

Is there a coaxial wireless sender/receiver or powerline that takes coaxial so I don't have to run a new cable through the flat or install a whole new connection? Or is there a way of installing the tivo that doesn't require the coaxial at all?

I've done some Googling but it hasn't shown any good solutions.

Re: Connecting Tivo via Wireless Coax sender

It is recommended that you do not attempt to run your own co-ax as Virgin Media use their own special cable.

You should contract Virgin Media, at a charge of £99, to complete the work, including ensuring the power levels are correct and do not affect you or your neighbours' service.

Re: Connecting Tivo via Wireless Coax sender

Your only option is to get Virgin in to move their network cable to a new position (which costs a flat rate £99 however much work is involved). Doing this yourself is not an option as specialised cable is used, & then signal levels will require rebalancing at the street cabinet. There is no way to send the signals in these cables wirelessly due to the vast amount of RF spectrum that is used.
