Hi been looking around for some device that can take a HDMI signal ( from sky / Blue ray HT )and stream it over my internal network at the same time as having HDMI pass thru

At the moment I have found this http://ascent.co.nz/productspecification.aspx?ItemID=381867 but it is not quite what I want as it does not provide the pass thru 

My goals here are to

a- be able to watch HDMI content on the main TV in the Lounge preferably without a 2way HDMI splitter
b- have HDMI receiver  in bedroom to watch on 2nd TV
c- use VLC on my mac/PC to watch TV also

 the mentioned device defiantly does b and a would require a splitter not sure about c thou ???

Does anyone here use such a device to confirm or know of any other units available

That link you posted looks like it is only a receiver unit so you will need the sender as well.
I don't see the sender on Ascents website though.

is your internal network wired? if so then for (A) and (B) you are probably looking for a pair of HDMI over CAT5 or HDMI over CAT6 devices rather than an HDMI over IP device.

for (C) you would need something to transcode the HDMI signal to a PC compatible MPEG stream (mpeg4 h.264 avchd etc). a better option would be to follow some posts here on how to get your SKY via a media center product and then use a XBOX or other type of extender to watch it from remotely
