Guys,<br>
Forgive me if there's an obvious solution, but I don't know of any and that's why I'm asking!<br><br>
I'm looking to put a 15" LcdTv in my kitchen. I'd really like to get either the basic channels or the channels from my cable box onto this unit, but wirelessly. Is their a device I can purchase that will render this possible? I don't care if the TV in the kitchen is showing the same as the cable in the living room.<br><br>
Is there a way go from the TV jack, to a box, to the lcdtv, -OR- Tv jack, Tv tuner in a PC, to a box, to lcdtv? Looking for options here, I'm really in the dark.<br><br>

You may look here. I haven't used them in a while so i don't know what they provide nowadays, but they specialize in remoting different things. Kinda hard to explain.<br><br><a href="http://www.x10.com/homepage.htm" target="_blank">http://www.x10.com/homepage.htm</a>

not what i am aware of i think the best way to do it is with cables tbh, there will be no interferance that way, and i am more than sure it will be cheaper to do.<br><br>
EDIT: ok then it can be done. XD

And no one with any sense can steal your connection...use the cables.<br>
Just wire it up so that the cables are out of the way.

whats nice about X-10, is that everything goes through your powerlines. So it's really not wireless.

I'm not sure if you could use a sling box in your situation... You could look into it though.<br><br><br>

I originally used it for controlling the lights in my house. Now it looks like they got into security stuff too. It was great, I was able to control anything electronic in my house from the WEB!!!! I have had no use for it lately so i don't know how solid they are now, but It's definately worth a look.

I checked. I think the slingbox is more for having portability of your movies whereever you are in the world. You'd mostly be using this with a laptop I believe.

You can use it for your tv too. I'm thinking about getting it for my phone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
edit: I think you'r right though about its mainly for "pc's" not tvs. :/

Slingboxes are designed to send you your TV signal to you anywhere in the world. You need broadband ofcourse, but it's pretty cool. And the quality is great.

I'll have to look into this, for $50 bucks..It might be worth giving it a shot.
