Default Cable Signal Broadcaster

I was wondering if there is a device that can broadcast my cable signal??

Problem: Cable guy wants me to pay for set-top box + 150 rs p.m. for additional TV. Tata sky wants me to buy a new digicomp + 300 rs p.m for additional tv

what if i can buy some type of device (like a wireless modem) that takes the signal from my cable connection and broadcasts it over my home. I can add wireless receiver to second TV and plug in the wire from device to 1st TV.

If this device costs less than 4k, i will break even in a year...ofcourse, if a neighbour wants to sign up, breakeven time is even lesser.

Anyone...Been there, done that?

I would like to correct you on the TataSky thing. TataSky will cost you 3000 for the additional set-top box and only Rs. 100/pm (over your primary subscription) for the additional tv. So if you have 2 tv's, you will pay them 400/- per month.

a - Illegal -B the signal is encrypted and as soon as it comes to the digi comp it gets decrypted to the channel you tune to, so if you use some thing like this with 1 digicomp every TV will show the same channel

the tata and dish both give one setup box for 300 per month and the next one in the same address will be 100 extra so it is better to have two setup box and it is better also.....

If you have an option to ship from abroad, then I think radioshack had a device which does what you want. Look it up.

Will the radioshack device work on encrypted signals? I doubt it.

I was researching the topic not very long back...you could transmit the cable signals over wireless and receive them on second tv set only incase you are using unencrypted signals ( no dish tv or tatasky)

However availablity in india is a problem :-) they are listed around 125 USD including one transmitter and one receiver, let me know if you find any better alternative
