One HTPC, Multiple TVs/Monitors

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
What would be the simplest and cheapest way to set up one dedicated HTPC (which I already have) to be able to be viewed (HD content) to multiple TVs throughout a house? I don't have gigabit ethernet (does it matter?), and the TVs are in seperate rooms. I tried streaming HD Video (~700mb, 25 min show) and it was choppy, so I'm not sure NAS/Media server approach will work well (the HTPC/Media Server is wired by a PowerPlug AV Network adapter [Linksys], so that may be the problem). Any software or hardware solutions or helpful tips? Just trying to see if there's anything I've missed.

As always rep for helpful answers!

Same thing on both tvs or different?
Rocketfish makes wireless HDMI (havent played with it though)
But with a solid N signal you should have been able to stream your show via wifi no issues..
