Hey guys. I want to share one of my directv receivers between 2 rooms. They can watch the same thing and I dont have to use the remote in the other room either. I am just trying to do this without a splitter and running more wiring.

Is there a cheap way to do this with wireless? I can use RF coax or composite.

Thanks!!!

I use something between my home office and kitchen made my x10. Just google "transmit tv between rooms" and You'll find a lot like it. Whole thing cost me $50. It works okay. Only okay. My microwave interfears with it, though.

Got it off the internet. They have more expensive versions out there that use a different frequency so that wireless routers and such don't interfere as much. My wireless router sits between the two tv's, so I feet some sound crackling. YMMV. :)

Still, it does what I need. I'm able to watch TV in the kitchen when making dinner.

I used to use the X-10 unit mentioned but I was getting a lot of interference. The 2.4 ghz is pretty crowded (microwaves, cordless phones, wi-fi, etc.)

I switched to this:

It's more expensive, but it operates on the less crowded 5.8ghz band. I get much less interference.

This newer 2.4 gHz video sender (www.x10videosender.com/) also returns the IR remote control signal.
