Moving Hub 3 away from V6

Hi all. 

I have moved my tv to a part of the room that hasn’t got a virgin access point (virgin won’t come for 99 engineer). It’s not far from my current virgin point so used an 
coaxial cable to move it through some trunking, it all works fine. Now I’ve moved everything to end of the property, as expected I’m struggling with WiFi signal at the other end of house. 

The plan was to run Ethernet cable back through the trunking and have an WiFi access point (at the same point) or use a power line which does work. Are these my best options? If so any recommendations on what to buy for an semi non tech person?

It does seem crazy to be moving hub 3 from centre of the house and then wiring back to same location. Can anyone think better way of doing this? I.e can you keep the hub at same location and just move the V6 by having an extender for broadband only part from hub?

Re: Moving Hub 3 away from V6

you can't modify/move your coax yourself. Thats against the T&C

Thank you for replying. When you say modify/move does that include adding extension cable to locate the V6 and hub 3 in different place. I haven’t touched the box on wall just added a cable?

yes any bad cable or DIY jobs can inject noise into the network and take down the services of everyone in the area.

that can lead you with no services and a very large bill from VM

Re: Moving Hub 3 away from V6

Oh right had no idea. Guess this comes up a lot. 

So only way to move the V6 / hub is to get engineer around? I did have one booked in but was cancelled few days later.

Any other advise to achieve this? I’m sure lots of people are doing diy jobs if engineers are not coming, it going to be busy after lockdown. I moved around my house based on the booking so bit stuck now so any help is appreciated.

The thing with that is you be pointing the remote where it is and not where the TV is.

Here is a HDMI I got for hooking up my PC to TV that good quality.
