Coax

Have a new router with no coax outlet. My DVR connected with an Ethernet cable to my old router but my other two TVs were connected with coax to the router. Can I connect my other TVs to the back of my DVR using the coax?

Re: Coax

No, the recievers have to be connected to the gateway...

 

The 210-700, the newest gateway released 3rd quarter 2017, has no coax output. All receivers have to be on ethernet connection either as hardwired or wireless receiver. There is a limit to number of wireless receivers supported.

 

Options...

* replace two receivers with wireless, normally one time charge $49 each. 

 

* rewire from coax to ethernet, billable charges

 

* ask for older gateway that still supports coax output, models 589, 599 or 5268. However in the future these may not be available.

 

* switch to DirecTv which uses coax.
