Like to install HDMI cable to both front TV over drive and the bedroom

How hard is it to do this? Any suggestions on how to do it? This would be for my 2007 Phaeton.

I don't know about a Phaetan but on my coach it is easier to go down to the belly and back up with a cable.Lot less cabinets and trim to remove to hide the cable.

It would be easy to run the wire through the basement. It would also be easier to run cat6 wire and get a cat6 to hdmi converter than trying to guess what leigth hdmi cable you need(cat6 to hdmi converters are available on amazon fairly cheep) I instaled a 4x4 hbmi matrix on our new coach it was $300.00 and works great.

And don't forget wireless HDMI. No cables needed.

When we were at Red Bay in August we were having an issue with the color (a bad board) on the front (above driver) and outside TVs. One the locals rerouted via HDMI in the VCR. Took him about two minutes and charged me $20! Not sure what he did but certainly the best $20 I spent.

Depends on the quality of the wireless unit .. I have a iogear .. About 150.$ and it works great but won't go very far .. Like from the front to the back especially if many walls between the tv and the transmitter mine goes about 20 feet with a clear shot. I didn't want to tear things up to route the cables
I second using Ethernet cable with baelens ( converter boxes ) on each end if your running cable .. Much easier and no chance of signal loss on long hdmi cable runs,

First is this a Gasser or DP? (Routing is differnet)

I know Gassers best so this is how I'd do it.. Down the "A" pillar, to under the dash, Through the firewall (likely via existing grommet) to the engine compartment, Down to the frame rails and back at least as far as the WET bays.. From there on my rig I can come up into a utility channel and that runs behind the Bedroom TV .. I'd drill not a single hole doing this.

(not even my Dealer could figure this route out ... They drilled holes)

HDMI. Cables are limited to some maximum length. May be better to go wireless.
