Anyone install a wireless HDMI in their motorhome

I've been using Dish in the motorhome with a Weingard Pathway2 dish. I purchased two receivers with the intention of installing one in the front tv and 1 in the bedroom. I have not to date ran the HDMI cord to the bedroom or activated the 2nd receiver.

I've been thinking about just using the front receiver and splitting the HDMI signal. Running the HDMI cord to the rear is a real challenge.

I think I would like to try a wireless system.

Has anyone installed one of these HDMI systems in their motorhome? Can I get some guidance on what system is best and installation guidance.

I've been using one for a couple years now in the MH and last summer added one to our S&B. In the MH I got tired twisting my neck to watch the front mounted tv. We have an open counter space at the rear of the main living area that is large enough for a free standing 42" flat screen. Have power there but was going to be difficult to pull an HDMI cable. Wireless works great and the tv is at the right level and viewable from all seating area.

Probably several choices but I used, Best Wireless HDMI Video Transmitter | The Wirecutter

Good luck,

Wireless HDMI | Long Range Wireless Matrix PRO | Wireless Video :: GWHDMS52MB

This is the latest and greatest thing on the market. I used the earlier model in my previous coach that worked flawlessly.

Dennis it looks like the unit just mirrors the main TV, am I correct?

Correct. Dish box feeds the transmitter and local tv. Receiver connects to the remote tv.

I installed a Iogear http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It has two HDMI inputs and works very well in our Palazzo 33.3.

We use an Actiontech and it works great. It was cheap. Got it on EBay.

I have the iogear 3dhdkit. Works great. It has 2 inputs, (Direct TV receiver and Blueray player), 1 HDMI output and 1 wireless output that I have connected up to my bedroom TV.
IOGear has other models that has 2 inputs and 2 wireless outputs so you can watch different channels on 2 different TV's.
Search YouTube for wireless HDMI for reviews on numerous brands and models.
Very easy to hook up.

I just installed the ActionTec ScreenBeam today. Got it on Amazon for less than $50. Works flawlessly. Before spending 4 times as much for the more expensive unit, remember this - HDMI is a digital standard. That means that any unit that sends in HDMI will have equal picture/sound quality. About the only thing more money can buy you is extra range.

I did also picked up an Actiontec on ebay and use it at home for the TV out by the pool. Works great and the signal shoots thru 2 concrete block walls to get there. I will be moving it in the MH for our next trip to handle the rear tv.

We use the one posted in the first link at our stick-n-brick. It's what I'll use if needed in the coach

I am interested in your opinions if this would work for putting a TV outside the RV.Like on A picnic table to watch sporting events or movies from a blue ray player
