Outdoor multi room box

Hi, I'm looking at using an outdoor tv and wondered if a virgin box could be installed outdoors but under cover of a glass roof veranda rather than indoors as normal?

Re: Outdoor multi room box

They are not designed for that sort of environment you would need to put it on the other side of the wall (indoors) and drill through the wall for an hdmi cable

Re: Outdoor multi room box

A glass roof will cause high temperatures and most likely reduce the design life of the box, so I find it unlikely that VM would permit this installation. As an alternative consider a long HDMI cable.

High temperature in the summer, low temperature in the winter, condensation, also putting a non ip65 outside is possibly illegal (I'd have to research)
