thats one thing of mine. i never trust anything wireless for BYT.

Agreed. It's one thing if you're outside by yourself, but with guests/an audience? Hell no.

I bought a 50' HDMI Cable for my NFL/UFC viewings. Never had an issue with them, and if you get it on Amazon...it's fairly inexpensive ($26.99).

It's a Blue Rigger HDMI cable, and they're specifically rated for in-wall installations. Usually in-wall installations take longer cables, so these cables are good for signals that have to travel a long distance.

What I do it that I bring my FiOS box (nereby called the second box) out from my man cave to my back porch. I split the signal from the wire that feeds the FiOS box in the den (using coaxial cable), and run it to the second box. Then run the HDMI from the second box to the projector. Works perfectly.

I use a 50-ft hdmi cable from monoprice. Got the RedMere high performance cable and it's been great: http://bit.ly/13XyVS8

I also use NFL Gamepass for streaming and AdFreeTime for subverting blackout restrictions: https://adfreetime.com/ (gets around the blackout restrictions on MLB.tv as well).

As usual I can't follow this. I run a 60ft coax from an wall connector to outside comcast box and connect to projector with HDMI.....so just run HDMI from my den box to outside projector?

Pretty much, yeah. If it's not much of a problem doing it. Would a tripping hazard result if you did that?

So would this work from my inside cable box to say 50 ft away outside?

You could get this and save about $130, although that streamer looks pretty cool.

thats one thing of mine. i never trust anything wireless for BYT.

I just upgraded my DirecTV to get a *free* Wireless Genie Mini...I can watch DVR and live TV.  All I need is power and HDMI to my PJ.

One Wireless Video Bridge (plugs into back of DirecTV box) can support up to eight Wireless Genie Clients, but only 3 clients can be active simultaneously.  The specs for the WVB (Wireless Video Bridge - aka proprietary wireless router) call for a coverage area of 70 feet and 5 walls. Of course, due to several factors like type of construction and signal interference, we don't yet know real world limitations.

I'll be testing this out sometime next week for World Cup Soccer and report back.

^^^^^^^

It worked great...although we didn't watch the entire soccer game, we did watch the first half without any issues.  We watched via DVR b/c it was too bright at 6pm (EST) to watch outside...I'll test live TV next weekend
