    Is there such a thing as a wireless satellite dish.
    I don't want to install a cable all the way from the roof to the living.
    Can this be done wireless?

    Never seen one. Anyway, it would still need a power cable, so you'd be gaining nothing. Satellite dishes don't have to go on a roof. It can go anywhere, as long as it can "see" the satellite.

    I am 99% sure you will need to cable it. I have my dish at the back and my box at the front of my house, so they used loads of cable, it makes you think you got a bit more for your money though!

    Yeah I think so to. The bandwith needed to transmit all those channels would be huge.

    I was looking into something similar last year, but couldn't find anything. What was suggested to me, was to site the dish in the garden, preferably near an outbuilding, and run it all from there using a video sender! Not exactly a perfect solution though.
