Re: V6 Ethernet connection using a powered netgear hub

So from you've answer that would mean I would have to run 20 plus meters of coaxial cable from the back to the front of my house.


Correct, yes - all VM boxes need a coax connection, and the V6 needs either a wired or wireless internet connection as well.


@Ashg wrote:

From what I understand you cannot do that because of the signal drop.


Emphasis added. You, the end user cannot do it. However VM will be able to because they can play with the power input to your property, apply and attenuators as appropriate to ensure that both units have the correct power levels.

Plus I would have to do that internally which is not possible.


The VM tech would route it outside for you as needed.

Re: V6 Ethernet connection using a powered netgear hub

that is the correct answer, you need a coax connection for all boxes and as the terms you signed up to you can't modify the network (cable)

As long as you're connecting the box to coax, and an internet connection fast enough to support any streaming you may wish to do, it doesn't matter how that connection is routed between the box and the Superhub.
