    Anybody know of a way I can send the picture/sound from the Media box to another TV in the house?

    I have the MCE downstairs runngin via VGA and an AMP (coax for sound). I would like to be able to watch whatever is playing upstairs.

    Links I have

    1xCAT5 cable - currently used for networking the MCE (goes to 8port Hub in loft which connects to PC in office, giving a hardwired network)
    1xCOAX going to loft booster box which then feeds upstairs TV's - Sky currently goes into this so the sky channel being watched can be viewed from anywhere.

    Any advice?

    Easiest solution would be some way of converting the VGA+Sound to COAX and feed that into the loft also so other TV's can be tuned into this signal - is this possible ??

    Not aware of a coax solution, but a modded xbox with the microsoft xbox mcx kit would do the job, or the new xbox 360, which has built in media center extender functionality. These will both use the Cat5e connection, and quality should be excellent.
