Works but if I was doing what you asked I would be putting the receiver closer to where its needed since the remote control issue is likely to be questioned next.
Since no source devices are noted I think you have an incomplete question.
I'm having a covered patio built on our new house and will be putting a TV out there. What's the best way to get a signal to the TV? I'm not exactly sure yet where the TV will be going and how long of a run it will be. The signal will be coming from a receiver that will be just inside in the living room that will share a wall with the patio.
My best guess is that it will be about a 30-50' run. I've read about HDMI with redmere as well as trying to run it over cat 5/6. Just wanted to see if anyone had opinions or experience doing the same and how it worked out.
