I've just bought a new PVR which has internet capabilities and am thinking about how to hook it up to the network. Powerline type devices seem like a reasonable idea but I kind of want to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
The wireless signal can get a little flakey in the extremes of my house and the TV is roughly half way between the router and where the signal gets flakey, so my thought is setting up an wireless extender with an ethernet port by the TV. Ethernet to the PVR + better wifi all round (and possibly cheaper?)
Does it work though? Has anyone got an extender to talk me into (or out of) it?
I do have 2 older routers, but as far as I can track down, neither can be drafted in to do this (DG834G V1 & O2wireless box II)
Any thoughts / tips on this topic would be great.
