An attic install will probably work. There are a greater number of variables since every attic is different. The construction type, presence of metallic objects (e.g., foil-backed insulation, ducts, metal bracing, wire mesh/stucco, etc.), and roofing material can all impact performance, so the degree of signal loss/degradation is unknown until you try it.

Most attics have only mild losses, so there's a good chance that going up one antenna size (to an HD7696P) is enough to make up for the difference in signal strength. My guess is that the HD7696P + 7777 will work great. The HD7695P might also work, but I'd feel more comfortable with the extra margin for error that the HD7696P offers.
