Is there any way to convert the hdmi signal from a vip reciever to rg6 coax?

If the answer is yes, will the signal still be HD when it gets to my LCD?

I have patio that has a RG6 cable drop. I would like to put an LCD out there. I would like to use the HDMI out on my vip211, convert it to RG6 and then hook to the LCD on the patio. Obviously it would be a mirrored image of the LCD that the 211 is currently hooked up too.

Thanks...

HDMI to coax baluns/extenders do exist - but be prepared to pay $400+. Just search Google. It might be cheaper to pay someone to fish an HDMI out there for your though.

If you think of what you're asking... what you are asking for is something to take the HDMI output and re-encode it to MPEG4, or MPEG2, or whatever so that the other device can re decode it... you basically need a mini-computer to do that... which is why such devices exist but are fairly expensive.

Just be careful which one you purchase and make sure you can return it if it doesn't meet your expectations. Typically these run at 5 Ghz and some run at 60 Ghz. At 60 Ghz you will not be going through any walls and these are mainly for the connections in the same room. At 5 Ghz you can get through one wall but multiple walls could be a problem.
