Please can anyone advise if they have connected skybox f5s (not from sky) to tv with hdmi but using wireless adapter or something?
We have wall mounted tv and our concealed wall hdmi cable head just came off and we can;t open the wall again. So thinking for connecting tv via wireless if possible. we have strong wifi router near tv if that helps. Thanks

go on you tube and follow insrtuctions to make box wifi send you link

You guys it's not making the box WiFi it's hdmi WiFi. It will be very pricey and not sure if sky box will be compatible

check out techmoan wireless hdmi

I doubt this is possible at all. How are your cables housed in the wall? If they're just loose behind plaster board you may be able to use the broken cable to pull a new cable through?

If you do end up re-running the cable, either install hdmi wall-plates (so the cable going into the TV is not the one running through the wall) or use the ethernet-hdmi converters. It's much easier to reterminate an rj45 plug.

Tape a new cable to the end of the old one and pull it through.

2 ways that might work.
Would a micro hdmi cable fit through to the tv (just put adapter on end)
You can send hdmi over an ethernet cable (you need 2 cables to allow for all the connections)

You would need to terminate your own cables if the connectors are to big to fit.
If your having trouble threading cables, use a measuring tape to pull wire through or one ot these

Thanks all for your replies.
HDMI cable is plastered in the wall not movable. Simply put I don't know how to fix broken HDMI head which goes into the tv. TV has 4 HDMI ports normal size.
Still unsure if there is something available to connect skybox fs5 to tv hdmi wire free without spending too much.

No, nothing will be cheap for this option. Why would you plaster cables into the wall oO

What about drilling out through the wall and back in again behind the tv.
Do you have other hdmi cables in the wall, an auto source switching box would work if you did

Sorry only had one hdmi cable put inside wall, wish would have thought of hdmi socket in wall instead.
This aliexpress one looks interesting. Thanks for your help.
