I have a problem that I don't really know how to solve (I mean, I know how to solve it in an ugly way but I'd prefer a cool one :))
Premise: I'm using Unitymedia, a German Internet, TV and phone (the last two over internet) provider. They sent me the Horizon HD, a big box which does everything. Data connection is made over a cable, specifically this one.
I only have one internet plug, which is downstairs. For space reasons, I want to have the TV upstairs. But this means that:
I have to buy a 20mt data cable, for connecting the plug to the Horizon HD which will be upstairs. (Ugly solution)
I have to...what? :-)
- I was thinking about connecting the data plug to the Horizon HD downstairs and then plug into the decoder an HDMI-WiFi (like a miracast or something similar) stick. Do you think it is possible to transmit the decoder UI over WiFi? Or am I forced to connect the HDMI cable to the TV?
- sub-problem: how can I change channels if the TV is upstairs and the decoder downstairs? :-(
- I connect the data plug downstairs to a small WiFi router, then I'd connect the Horizon HD to this WiFi router. Again, do you think it is possible?
- please, tell me what you would do :-)
