I had a 4k PVR located in my media room connected via ethernet to my actiontech router. However, I would like to use the ethernet connection to provide a hard-wired connection to my network devices in the room (apple tv, tv, receiver, etc.) Is there a way to connect my 4k PVR via coax as I have two extra coax's in that location. My actiontech has a coax connection right now and my master bedroom 1080p box runs on coax currently. Any help is appreciated.
You could try a gigabit ethernet switch between the PVR and the wall. That's what I did for my PVR and the other hardwired devices I have beside it.

I got mine from the TELUS installer when he installed the boxes. If you happen to get a visit from a TELUS tech and you ask nicely they will most likely give you one for free.
I'm hoping that because its actiontech it will work. Telus hasn't really been all that helpful on this. I've offered to purchase an adapter from them but they are telling me that I need to have a tech come out and that it would be a billable service call. I never thought moving a tv would be so difficult. Thanks for all your help.
I believe that Actiontec MOCA adapter is the same one that Telus uses to connect to the T3200M.
You can find it at better prices by checking Craiglist. There's someone in the Vancouver area selling them for about $70 I believe.
You should get very close to full speed through MOCA as you do through CAT5 for Internet, even up to the 920Mbps range
If you already have an Ethernet cable connection to the box, like the OP does, a cheaper route would be to get a small gigabit switch for $20 - $30 which will give you 4 or 5 extra connections instead of just 1. MoCA is the last resort when all you have is a coax cable.
