How to make TiVo box work from loft and watch tv in lounge

Hi does anyone know how I can watch tv in my lounge and dining room when my TiVo box is in the loft. I do not want any cables running round skirting or up walls. I have heard that if i get the TiVo box attached to the TVs cables running to all the rooms and then use some kind of wireless magic eye system control the box from both TVs. Any help would be appreciated or alternative way.

 

thanks

This doesn't sound practical how are you going to connect HDMI from TiVo to tv which needs to happen, to sent signal to tv in HD & SD don't think they make one long enough.

I was going to use existing tv cables in wall. First connect TiVo box into booster in loft attach this to existing cables therefore feed TVs in other rooms it is how I can then control channels if this all works. That is the master plan anyway. I have done it before with sky TV.

you can not do that wth tivo. and if you did could the quality would be really bad. the tivo needs a HDMI connection for HD

Exactly what I said. I think it's a pipe dream
