Putting hdmi cable in for tv 378

Hello everyone, I want to put a hdmi cable to my tv in my 378. The receiver is in cabinet above passenger seat. How on earth do you run that cable in place of the stock one?

We wanted to do the same with our 351, but decided to get a wireless transmitter and receiver instead. Works great.

Amazon.com: Actiontec Multi-Room Wireless HD Connection Kit, Black (MWTV2KIT01): Electronics

Tie a double string on the existing wire and pull it out, use one string to pull the existing wire back and the other to pull the hdmi cable.

Much easier said than done in most cases.

Chris, can you leave the speakers connected to the reciever, wired and just use for the picture because I have surround speakers in the ceiling?

It can be done, I have HDMI wired 3 TVs to the same satellite receiver. It takes some time to plan the route, there are many ways to route the wires. Do not try to pull out any existing wires, they are usually clipped somewhere along the way. I went from the sat. box to a 3 way HDMI splitter, form the splitter to each TV. Got the splitter on ebay for around $20.00 If you take your time to run the wires and get HDMI wall plates, you will get a clean factory look.

In a word, don't. I had a new 2014 ACE motorhome with a 40' HDMI cable and couldn't transmit signal from Blu Ray player. Three players later, discovered problem to be too much cable. Recommendation is 5 feet of cable. Dealer installed a wireless transmitter and receiver as ChrisandGarren said and voila, worked great. Do it the easy way.

Maybe. We haven't tried it the way we are wired currently. Also depends on how your surround sound is wired, ours goes through the radio in the dashboard.
