I have Telstra clears cable tv thru their top box and I believe that signal can be relayed to another T.V. set in another room. Can anyone help me with that??

What about one of these. Saves running wires, costs $100 and transmits audio and video wirelessly up to 33m.

I'd check some reviews first though.

I had installed a little box that feeds the signal back up a cable and then to any tv in the house. Works perfect with both my TBox (ie can have either show on any tv so you can flick between 2 things on sky). So yeah it can be done but mine is just called a backfeed.

You can also get wired or wireless remote extenders so you can change channels in your room.  Also, does the box have more than one video/audio out?  You don't really want to end up having to run your TV in your lounge just so you can watch the TV in your room.

Yes they do have more than one out. I actually run 3 outs (wrote about it in the beta review here -

Also while not asked yes you can playback on the TBox to the feed and watch the playback. One reason I moaned during the beta there was no Playback list option (and still there isnt sadly).

Get a wireless sender with remote extender. Quality can be better than an RF feed around the house. Plus, you'd be able to use the remote and change channels from the other room. Get a 5.8ghz one if you have wi fi in your house to avoid interference.
