Swisscom tv in a 2nd room

I am trying to have my television signal sent to an alternative room and would like to know if anyone has already done this setup? Back in the UK I used a little device called the 'magic eye' a quality £10 box that would send the Sky signal through an aerial cable.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Setup situation:

Lounge (downstairs): Router + TV + Swisscom TV box (connected via ethernet cable)

2nd room (upstairs): TV

Well it's a pertty simple job to wire up two TVs to a single receiver, if that's what you want, but as with the Sky one they'd both be limited to showing the same things, with no ability to view different channels.

Depending on the age of the TV and other connected equipment, you may need a splitter box, a one-to-many scart connector, or a simple aerial cable such as you mention.

Or just use a computer, phone or tablet in the bedroom. The Swisscom subscription, plus free app, allows you to watch all the channels direct from the internet anyway.

Thanks for the quick reply. It's the "wire" up aspect I would like to try and avoid. The two rooms are a long way from each other.

I know I could use an ipad or or computer but I have a perfectly good TV sitting doing nothing.

No wires necessary Swisscom have these and they are fantastic, but they cost. Forget all the adapters you can buy in the shops these work.

but the OP's looking to pipe the output from an existing TV Box to a 2nd TV. This is to plug the gap between vDSL router and TV Box.....

Re: Swisscom tv in a 2nd room

I was going to suggest something similar, but non Swisscom, proprietary brand, which I recall seeing for much less (than 100?), in electrical stores.

But again, will only transmit the same channel as the master TV/digibox.

Apologies with the previous post, went of at a tangent. With the powerline boxes (shop bought) they didn't cut the mustard in our old house, Swisscom boxes work without any issues.

Re: Swisscom tv in a 2nd room

I think that your best bet is a video sender with remote control coupling.
Just on ebay.

Anyone have any recommendations of what you can obtain locally.

Been there done that - the quality is shocking. Too many walls in between me thinks. Thanks for the idea though

Went for these little bad boys in the end:

Not cheap I know but we have got some decent line speed capabilities and a boost for the wifi.

Re: Swisscom tv in a 2nd room

I think any solution will cost,

The Powerline adaptors ór any shop bought adapters don't work well at all in our old house, hence the expensive Swisscom ones are the only I have found which do work, they are fantastic, but cost. http://www.swisscom.ch/en/residentia...htlos-duo.html

I have Zattoo http://zattoo.com/#preview streaming onto the TV in the cellar through www.videoweb.de
Quality is Ok but you will need a good internet connection in your bedroom and need to pay for the box.

Having a second Swisscom TV box in the bedroom.

If you have a Apple smartphone there are other solutions to get the signal on the TV.
