HD 2015 GeorgeTown xl 378Ts

1.Has anyone successful setup Direct TV HD DVR in this Model
2. Does anyone know where the coax cable splitters are located.
3. New Direct TV receivers require HDMI output to the TV! Has anyone found a way to run the cable or use wireless HDMI.

Thanks in Advance

There have been a lot of discussions on this issue. You might want to do a search and find one of them.

Since HDMI cables weren't installed by the factory, the simple solution is to use an SD Direct TV receiver, coax in/out. You can purchase from Direct TV for $69.

I used a wireless HDMI transmitter/receivers in my 378. It was easy setup for all three TVs.
It all depends on where you want to place the directv receiver and if you are using a SWM or slimeline antenna

I also installed wireless HDMI in my 335 but only to one tv. Did you run three separate transmitters and receivers from one Directv receiver or can you run multiple HDMI receivers from one HDMI wireless transmitter?

I chose to place my Directv Slimline receiver under the living room TV then run an HDMI splitter, one went to the transmitter and the other to the outside TV. I connected the HDMI receiver I the bedroom TV.
With that said the manufacture, IOGear makes a transmitter that has three receivers. This would solve the issue with the Directv receiver above the passages side compartment and attaching receivers to all TV.
If one uses a SWM receiver then all that needs to be used is installed coaxial cable going to all TV. They would all be HD connected and you could watch different Channels on all TVs.

I think most folks desire HD quality picture. I know I do. It's a shame that FR didn't install HDMI cables. Last I checked, we are in the 21st century. Apparently FR hasn't gotten there yet👿

I tried to put a Direct TV SD box in but they would not activate it since everything is going to HD and I was a new customer. Had to go with the H24 HD box and use a converter (red,White,Yellow) out of box to coax cable.
I have a 2014 335 and installed a King Dome Rover on roof and found some of the coax cables are not connected to anything.
