MTS Ultimate TV connectivity question
I'm considering switching from Shaw to MTS TV and internet... now as I understand, with the ultimate TV system you have your phone entrypoint into your basement, the MTS boxes/modems, and each tv has a set top box, the main tv having the "main" pvr box, correct? Now, I've read that the main pvr box would get a cat5 feed from the modem/box, and the other set top boxes would run off the existing coax...
Does the main pvr have to be fed with cat5, or will coax work? Reason being is that my demarc/phone entry point in the basement, is completely on the oposite kitty corner side of the house, from where the main PVR would sit upstairs, and the basement is finshed, there won't be any running of cat5 anywhere... Would the existing coax work or am I stuck with shaw?
