    I have the Motorola 6412 from Comcast as my PVR located in the living room. I want to be able to watch the recorded content (SD is fine) in the bedroom without running wires. I have looked into some of the 2.4GHz AV transmitter/receiver but the one I bought, a cheapo, didn't work for crap. I have been toying with the idea of the Leapfrog WaveMaster. Does anyone have experience with the this? Another product I found takes a coaxial input and puts on your existing phone line and the other end does the opposite. THe model number is CES11068 - Magic Link TV-TLA Video Link. I like this solution because I already have 2.4GHz flying around the house. Does anyone have experience with this product?

    Thanks,

    Have you got a TV antenna feed/cable drop in your bedroom? If so, a clever use of switches could allow you to cut it loose from the antenna/system [important!] and feed the output of the PVR into it instead.
    That's what I'd do. [​IMG]

    Yes I do have a drop in the bedroom. Ideally, I would like to do that way but the issue is the place I call home. It is a condo. I have no access to an attic or under the floor.

    It depends on how your wiring runs; you might be able to do it without actually having access to the runs themselves. Basically what you want to do is find the splitter where the tapoff for your living room is separated from the tapoff for your bedroom. Depending how it's set up, you may be able to disconnect that from the MATV system, and then send video up what's normally your living-room leadin and down what's normally your bedroom leadin, to your bedroom TV.

    Thanks for the responses.

    That may work if I had access to the splitter. I have no idea where it is located due to the condo issue.
