Would this work for a bedroom TV?

We have a TV aerial on the roof, but it's getting a bit long in the tooth, but still works, it provides signal to two PVRs in the lounge, but We have a TV in the bedroom too for recording short programs just for a bit of something to watch before going to sleep I find it very relaxing, and drop off in no time, but the indoor antenna has given up the ghost, and was always in the way and was affected by movement in the room.

So is there a box of trick which I can plug the roof aerial into which would send a signal through a block wall to a receiver in the bedroom?

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

You could have something like this

or try googling wireless tv transmitters and read some of the reviews.

Those devices send a TV picture from a TV, DVD player, PVR or similar, they don't (I think) send the raw signal from the aerial, but I could be wrong. It certainly wouldn't be the first time!! (And sure as hell won't be the last either)

The TV in front room gets it's signal from the roof ariel and the transmitter then relays that signal to the other TV. My brother-in-law has one similar that sends signal from his living room TV to his bedroom. No need to plug anything else into the roof ariel. Read the reviews - they explain exactly how they work.

I stand corrected !! (But not convinced)

In my defence I would point out that the blurb states it is compatible with any VIDEO source !! It also states you can change the channel from another room via the remote control, now if it's receiving a signal from an aerial how the **** can you change the channel??? It's the TV that selects what signal it wants to receive and then displays that picture.

"For use with Freeview, free to air and Sky BOXES!!"

I still think it will send a TV signal from the output side of a TV, Freeview/Sky box or similar to another TV in another room but not a signal directly from an aerial feed. If your brother in law has one why have you not asked him what it is and where he got it from?

S'okay Andy. My first thought too, but doing it is not so easy due to the way the house is laid out, can't get under the floor etc, when we had this extension built we discussed where cables and sockets would run, and someone then decided we never had that discussion, and they needed to be somewhere else.

I could fit a new aerial on the other side of the house, but have you seen what the fitters want for an hours work, bloody ludicrous, I know the local suppliers prices, and they are having a laugh.

I think this is what I might need ??? but what a price, I'm sure I read of a device which plugs in and uses the ring main to di what I want, but might have misread it or am mis remembering it
