Just to be clear, Bell Fibe TV is not wireless, but all the new set top boxes are.
1)The fiber will enter your basement at the demarcation point. It will then plug into the Bell modem that will be installed at that location. Older systems ran an ethernet cable to the PVR somewhere in your home near a TV, but today, the PVR is wireless, and as such, doesn't require a cable to connect it. The other TV's in your home each get a small receiver that is (an always has been) wireless.1) how will Fibre cable be installed (it can reach my house), and come into my basement (where currently I have one cable). I want the pvr here and also the modem as all my entertainment equipment is set up here.
2) My second tv is on the 2nd floor. Do I need another HD PVR? and how does the fibe signal get to this TV or HD PVR without running a any cable or wire?
Hey elyk,The other TV's in your home each get a small receiver that is (an always has been) wireless
Interesting.Just so you know, not quite true, the other receivers have NOT always been wireless.
No problem. The wireless receiver still has component video and composite video/audio outputs on it in addition to the HDMI.Thanks for all the replies. My second tv is really old (2003 sony plasma) and does not have hdmi input, only dvi and the 3 rgb cables. Would it be a problem with the wireless receiver?
Yes you can but you will lose any discounts that you have and will have to pay rental fee for PVR and receivers.Can I run my Fibe TV if I change internet provider?
I would have though that too, however, as an FYI, in our area of Toronto near Yonge and Lawrence, where they just finished adding Fibre, we got a promo in the mail and it mentioned 300 mbps (IIRC), rather than Gibabit. Not sure why...Yes you can have both Gigabit Internet and Fibe TV on the same connection.
