I'm just wondering, if there's any consumer level Personal Indoor HDTV (ATSC Compatible) VHF/UHF Transmitter available?

I'm looking for a solution by which I can redistribute HDMI or combo of DVI w/SPDIF signal coming out of any of the devices listed below:

- DVD Player with HD Upsampling with HDMI output (such as Model: JSI 4127 - I'm not allowed to paste URLs, yet, because this is my 1st Post :D)

- Cable Box with HDMI or DVI output

- HTPC with HDTV (DVI or Component) Output


In other words I'm looking for a solution similar to the good old VHF / UHF Analog Video Indoor Transmitter, but for DIGITAL HD output to be wirelessly transmitted over VHF/UHF so that HDTV in different rooms to be capable of tuning onto this on one of the free channels.

I think such a solution will simplify the setup/aesthetics of any HTPC project.

Appreciate, any leads to such products or ideas for DIY projects.

No, there is no easy method to distribute HD around a house yet, most distribution methods are hard wired and only work with component connections.

Please change your font color, not all of us run the black background.

You don't need to choose a color tag at all.

No such animal currently nor likely in the near future exists. Real time MPEG encoding and frequency agility being two major (pricey) obsticles.

If we atleast know what the Broadcasters use to convert an MPEG2 HD Stream into TS (Transport Stream) HD / VHF or UHF RF Freaquency; that should probably give some idea to build our own or pursue an economical solution... I'm still dreaming :)

OTA uses 8VSB
Cable uses QAM256

Pick your modulation format and start pricing and designing. If you come up with something that works at an affordable price (I.E. <$1000) get it patented quickly.

Also... make sure it complies to FCC regulations.
