moving a STB and TV to a different location in house

Hi all,

 

I am new to FIOS.  Can I move a STB and TV into another room in the house (like I used to be able to do when I had cable service)?  Thanks.

Plug just the cable box in.  All you need is power and coax to the box. Wait and see if you get the time on the front display after a minute or so.  If you do, your good to go.  If it stays at the 4 dashes for many minutes, then the coax jack is not wired for your service.

Yes you can, assuming the the cable jack in that room was wired for fios.

Thanks, Charles.  I don't know if it was - is there some way that I can know/find out before I move the TV?
