Hey guys I got cable tv that comes into my place on the 2nd floor, I want to get it on the 1st floor but do not want to run cables, anyone know of a good device that works good to send cable tv wirelessly, its not digital cable just regular cable, want to be able to watch different channels on both tv's at the same time.

I have not tried it yet, nor do I know much about it.... buuuut i have been hearing alot about these slingboxes (http://www.slingmedia.com/go/slingbox) lately. Look into it, i have a feeling it could work for you if you have an extra PC laying around

Sling box won't do what I want. as it changes the tv channel, plus I want to watch it on my TV not computer. But thanks for the info.

Slingbox makes a base station that you can hook to your TV.

Dang, I thought they made an accessory for the slingbox that was a control station you could hook to tv.

Oh, I found it. It isn't out yet. It's called Slingcatcher
