I'm sorry if this explanation is incomplete or leaves something out - I'm trying to figure this out & may not be using the right words.

I've been using a wireless TX/RX to send A/V to a remote TV (Ammon Brite-View HD Transmitter & Receiver BV-2882 with Tivo/cablecard & DVD in; HDMI out to main TV, wireless out to remote kitchen TV), although I've been considering a wired connection & HDMI matrix. I recently replaced the TV with a Samsung TV with WIFI & can now receive streaming video (Amazon Prime Instant Video, HBOGo) through the TV itself. The TV has no HDMI out. Is there any way to distribute content that is rec'd by the TV that doesn't go thru the TX/matrix?

Thanks much,
Marsha

I'm willing to go out on a limb and say "no". The TV is there to show you stuff sent to its inputs and now the "smart" TV have one of those inputs as the internet. TVs don't do video output. You can use "smart" boxes like some cable/satellite boxes, game consoles, apple tv, etc to do this, but I'd be rather surprised if there's any TV out there that can do it.

Easiest way to distribute that content:

Just put one on any non-smart TV biggrin.gif Cheaper and easier than a matrix...
