One of these with a run of cat5 between will do the trick - way more reliable than a wireless set up.

Bonus is it gives you the ability to control another piece of kit (eg a Blu-ray player) from the second room further down the track as well.

If all you want is a good picture in the second room, and are happy to run/get run a piece of CAT5, then this unit from Jaycar (http://www.jaycar.co.nz/productView.asp?ID=QC3681) will give you a composite signal and IR control from the second room, if you aren't already using the composite output.

I use it successfully over 90m's of CAT5 each week to transmit video, haven't tried it with IR, but for $110 + CAT5 cable, it's a cheap and solid option.
