We have a slight problem with the TV connections in our bedroom. The TV is on one wall, but the cable connection is on the opposite wall. So far we’ve just been running a cable across the floor. I don’t like this option, but it’s a bit pricey to have another jack installed in the opposite wall.
I thought I had found the solution with the Leapfrog Video Transmitter. The device allows you to wirelessly transmit a video (or audio) signal from a source like a VCR, cablebox, DVD player, etc… to a remote TV (or stereo).
The solution almost worked. The video came through, but we were getting a little noise (video & audio) in the signal. The devise works on a 2.4GHz frequency. We live in a nine story building, surrounded by other people, and I think our area is just a little too congested with other 2.4GHz devices. It was so close to working well, but it wasn’t quite good enough. I think the devise would actually work well, if you lived in a neighborhood that had some decent spacing between houses.
If you live in a less congested area, this may be a good solution for you. Circuit City has the transmitter for $99.99.

I bought one of these over a year ago for our church. It works great to go from the sound room to our projector up front for much less than cable.
