    Do you get a strong TV signal ? Perhaps a small indoor DVB antenna would work.

    Hi...it is wireless between the transmitter and your aerial. You can't have a wireless connection between the aerial and your TV. It would be illegal and interfere with others.
    You either can use the complicated system in post 2 which still requires a cable connection or find a way to run an aerial feed. I'm sure an aerial installer would find a way of running a cable.

    order pcb

    Depending on how strong the signal is in your area you might not need one at all..

    I have a TV in the office for playing old NES & SNES games on. When tuning it for the consoles it picked up all of the freeview channels - the coax wire from the tv to the console (around 1m) was long enough to act as an aerial.

    The alternative would be an indoor aerial - there are a load of decent ones that will attach to the wall quite discreetly.

    Would this interfere with other homeplug use?

    Interesting - yeah the rPi route does open up a lot of "but I don't want a separate PC" options since they're so cheap. I can't recall since I never used one but they support WiFi now, or easily can? So I could plug one into the loft by the master aerial cable. Otherwise I'd have to find a room which has both ethernet and coaxial sockets.

    I still would need something in the office to get the signal onto the TV. I could use a 2nd rPi I suppose as a VLC client via HMDI-out. Or I wonder if one of these Google/Amazon dongles can consume VLC?

    Only issue here is it starts to get complicated when I want to change channel. I like things simple so in my mind I've got a Coax -> wireless adapter and a wireless->coax adapter, so my TV is ignorant of all the clever stuff happening and my remote still works. Maybe this isn't as simple as it seems although I do come back to the "just have a small local transmitter in the house and a portable aerial on the TV" option.

    Sounds like a job for a Raspberry Pi type thing.

    Found this:

    Watch and record live TV on your Raspberry Pi | TechRadar

    Presumably you can skip the recording part (unless you want to) and just keep the streaming to the browser part. As always with Linux though, it's only free if your time is worthless ;-)

    Actually a secondary issue is that this way I need a PC to watch TV, not a TV. Again, I don't want to set up an additional PC in my office just for TV and I'd rather not have the TV as a 2nd monitor on my main PC because a)it just gets a bit over-complicated b)I probably want a 2nd monitor for work.

    Very interesting though, I might revisit it another time if I have a similar but not identical issue.
