HD antenna Bluetooth transmitter

Installing TV above mantle with no cable run to it. I would like to connect an HD antenna, but I don’t want to run cable to it either outside or inside the wall. Is there a device that would receive the signal from the antenna then push it out to a Bluetooth receiver plugged into an HDMI slot?

Re: HD antenna Bluetooth transmitter

Hi there, Keno65,

 

Welcome to our community. I'm right there with you in regards to keeping your walls cable-free. From what I understand, though, most (if not all) TV antennas must be physically connected to your TV, and after doing some digging, I was not able to find a suitable Bluetooth or Wi-Fi transmitter to do this for you.

 

I know you mentioned you would prefer to not run cables outside or inside the wall, but would you be open to using some type of cable management to conceal the cables instead?

Re: HD antenna Bluetooth transmitter

I did just such a thing for my parents.  The best case scenario is to have the antenna as high as possible on a roof and hard wired to the TV.  

 

The installers simply used the exisitng cable in the house and ran to the nearst cable from the antenna.

Thanks for the response. Looks like I’m crawling through the attic to run cable. The previous homeowner used an exterior conduit to run his lines. I just don’t like the look of it.

Re: HD antenna Bluetooth transmitter

The people we purchased our house from used external conduit to run speaker wire from the basement to the upstairs.  I ripped it out, didn't like the look either.

 

However, I would advise caution before going into the attic.  Be very careful not to disturb the insullation. Mine would be a  nightmare as there is a lot of blown stuff in there.
