I'm trying to put a TV in a room where my house cut off the Coaxial Connection to, and the room next to it has Ethernet ports that are connected to my AT&T Router. Since Ethernet is much more easier for me to handle than Coaxial (Flexability around walls), is there a way to link/connect a Uverse reciever with Ethernet?
(Purchasing a wireless reciever is not in my budget right now.)
If so, here's my problem:
Let's say the room with the Router is room A. The room with the Ethernet connection is room B. And the room that I want to connect the cable box to is room C.
Room B is not directly connected to the router. It's connected via a powerline adapter in Room A with brings the signal of the Ethernet to Room B. Room B then takes the ethernet from the powerline adapter and goes into a Ethernet Switch. From the switch is where I want to connect Room C to the cable box system.
Is this possible?

Room A is significantly further away than room B. Room B is about 10 feet away, while Room A is 30-40 feet away. If I run it from Room B, I would use significantly less ethernet cable, plus it's easier to conceal.

You can always try what you want to do. If you are mixing TV and internet on the same switch, be prepared for flooding the switch.
