Can i hook up my televison to an HD terminal (Netbox) that is in a different room. I have an outdoor television but would like to leave the box indoors.
Thank you for the speedy reply! Sounds simple enough. In terms of the remote will there be any compatibilty issues that you would forsee ? I am assuming that I would use the netbox remote and the transmitter would take of comminication to the HD terminal ? Thanks Again
Actually. you need IR transmiter itself.
Those are different than your Video Transmitter. It essentially repeats your IR remote feed on the other side to the nextbox. Since it is "Line of Sight" Technology. IR (InfraRed) is short range you can't throw that much distance. So IR Transmittor works.
I don't recommend a wireless one for that. since you'll get a delay as much as a wired one. but either way there is a delay to extend and port IR range regardless if you go wireless or wired with the IR Transmiter.
I do however recommend, AnyPlace TV At Home Edition, then you can control that box through your wifi network - It has a built in Remote in the App
(You can actually control your NextBox from anywhere even if you were out of town.)

True. Guess it depends on the location.
I know my brother used to do it... but the TV and box itself were inside, he just had a view from his window, into the house so could watch it from there with the window open for audio... he would sit in his hot tub there with the remote.. BUT it also had an awening over it.
One other option as well.. depending on if the user had potential OTHER equipment as well which would be connected (bluray or other devices).
The harmony smart control system (this is one, but there are other more advanced ones as well)
The little pod, you leave near your equipment for it to do the IR from there.
The remote itself does not need to be in visual range.. its radio frequency. And also does it over wifi with smart phone apps. Do doesnt have to be anywhere near in sight.
Little less wire running, etc than an wired IR extender, etc.
