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?
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.
6 TV's in the house on FiOS and we only pay $4.99/month to connect them all!!! Power to the CableCard and WMC7!!!
