I haven'e seen a post since 2007 on this, but wanted to see if there is any new products for transmitting cable signals to room with no cable outlet? I want to have a transmitter in my basement where I have my version fios box at, then transmit the signal upstairs. Are there any new products that have better transmission for this type of application?

The only thing that can be sent wirelessly is baseband audio/video.

No way to do the HD but they still make the devices that send modulated signals (one at a time). You must tune the device in the room that it resides in.

Meaning u can only view 1 channel at a time and the tuner won't be next to the TV meaning u have to rig some sort of IR extender and.... if that makes u happy so u don't have to lay a RG6.

Look into building an HTPC and use a CableCard tuner. Verizon charges $4/month to rent a cableCard and it is capable of decrypting 6 streams at once. You can distribute the decrypted HD TV signal over home network.
