So are about to move into a beautiful new house that we have just bought that has just been refurbished and has an existing virgin set up....
I would like to go for a multi room set up to create a cinema room but its on the other side of the house compared to where the existing virgin box is
I have a couple of questions
1) Does the second box need to be physically connected to the first box via a coaxial
2) if the answer to the above is no, Can the engineer run the additional coax cable around the exterior of the house from the main entry point into the house?
Basically, as the house has just been refurbed I want to avoid any sort of visible cable. If the cable needs to run on the interior of the house, something like chasing the cable through the wall is too much hassle as the second box is quite far away so is not an option. Running the cable on the outside is a potential compromise but if i cant get the installation I want without somehow hiding the wiring I will revert to Sky...
I think Virgin needs to up its game in terms of connectivity as surely hardwire connections are becoming a thing of the past?
1) Does the second box need to be physically connected to the first box via a coaxial Yes it has to have a coax cable
2) if the answer to the above is no, Can the engineer run the additional coax cable around the exterior of the house from the main entry point into the house? normally its insatlled on the outside and drilled in.
Wireless is not the furture wired will always be the better option. the more wireless devices people use the worse wireless gets its not like a wired connection that can be spilt onto different networks. Wireless is a limited recource
In the cinema room the V6 can obviously be connected to the hub with an Ethernet cable, as for the second V6 another Ethernet cable is best and you should be able to run that cable externally from the hub to the front.
