Right now we have 3 DVR boxes. One up Stairs, one in our living room, and one in our bedroom. The one thats in our bedroom is bigger and wider than the other boxes and it also has our internet modem connected to it. What i want to do is disconnect the modem from the box and bove the modem upstairs so that we can connect it to our game console up stairs. Can i do this without messing anything up? We want the modem upstairs connected to the game system but we want to keep the dvr downstairs. HELP!!!!

Basically recommend tech visit, $99 service call, $55 per wire run.
Wire 1....NID to new RG location, cat5, new jack wall plate or biscuit
Wire 2... RG to DVR, either Ethernet preferred or coax.
How are other two tvs connected, if wireless, then WAP goes with RG.
If coax need a 3rd wire from RG to coax splitter.
If Ethernet from DVR can add gigabit switch by DVR for about $60...
Example of switch. http://www.att.com/equipment/accessory-details/?q_sku=sku3950269
So possible billing, service call ($99), homerun ($55), feed to DVR $55, switch $52 total $261.
If need wireless receivers add $49 per receiver.
be aware this will be listed as a move request, may be charged DOD (dispatch on demand) fee $149 instead of $99 service call.
