Re: Set top box wireless or not, HDMI necessary ?

Thanks for your reply. When i spoke to the first CS rep she assured me not to worry because the box didn’t have to be in the same location and could be connected wirelessly. But i was confused as to why that mattered if the hdmi still needed to be connected between the tv and box. 

The mini can get its signal wirelessly or through a wire as Dexman said. You have to get the signal from the box to the TV somehow, and that's where HDMI comes in. There are HDMI transmitters, but they are expensive, and broadcast over WiFi so your TV would have to be able to allow apps to be downloaded and installed that the transmitters use.
