    I want to put a 15 inch flat screen in my basement bathroom (which is located about 15 feet from my theatre) that will show the same DVD/TV movie that is playing in my theatre. What adapters, cords, etc. do I need?

    See if the player's S-video jack is alive at the same time the component jacks are, and if so, use the S-video jack for one of the TV's.

    Alternatively see if the main TV has a "video out" jack. Connect this to the second TV. This may require that you use all composite rather than component video connections and if so, scratch this idea.

    Using Y connectors will probably degrade the picture severely.

    Other alternatives get expensive. I don't know where to buy component video distribution amps.
