Ok. I have two wall mount LCD TVs mounted pretty high up on a wall. I would like to use a ROKU and have the same thing play on both TV's same time. They are about 40' apart, and I don't want to run a new wire if I can get out of it. I already have old coax cable running to both, and that could be an option, instead of doing it wireless. However, I would need some type of HDMI to coax converter or something to make the ROKU work... Ideas there instead of wireless? Would this work? http://www.amazon.com/C2G-42409-RapidRun-Digital-Passive/dp/B001UEKZ00/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1390954321&sr=1-1&keywords=hdmi+to+coaxial+adapter

On wireless I have read a lot of different threads here, and looked at more devices than I care to mention on amazon and ebay, then went to the mfgrs website and read about them some more, etc and so on. I see a lot of the thumb drive style receivers, which would be ideal, but I am having difficulty determining if one transmitter will work with two receivers when reading. I also thought of using two separate transmitters, and two separate receivers, and using a HDMI splitter coming out of the ROKU and run that to each separate transmitter. Would this be the best way? I am also worried there might be a lag on one or the other if there was some type of sync or timing issue, and then audio would be off...

Could I use this to split the HDMI output from the ROKU: http://www.amazon.com/HDMI-Splitter-Premium-Cable/dp/B000FMJLQC/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1390954753&sr=8-6&keywords=hdmi+splitter
And then this to transmit to the two TV's: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A807VZY/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2EVBW1ZAR0ZV2&coliid=I1OVXI7XH9ZUWY

What would you guys recommend? Ideas? Brand?

Seriously, it's probably more practical than the electronic solution under your constraints.
