Watch V6 box without HDMI cable?

Quick question regarding wireless HDMI.

We have one of our Virgin boxes (we have 4 all together) in the kitchen. It's installed out of site in a cupboard and a HDMI cable is run around the wall in trunking to the back of the TV.

We are having a new kitchen fitted next week and unsightly cables/trunking are just not happening. So the question is, how do I get a picture on the TV in the kitchen from the V6 box in the cupboard without using a cable? 

I've seen the HDMI over Ethernet gadgets on Amazon, that could work, as long as I can use two powerline plugs at each end to send the signal, running an ethernet cable from one connector to the other is no better than running a HDMI cable. Thoughts?

Hi I don't think this will be very successful, you won't have a stable enough connection which will drive you mad, if that's the bottom line then I would do away with the TV in your kitchen or just be satisfied with freeview in there. Regards Micky

What? and have no Premier League football on all day on sundays whilst cooking (and drinking)?.....can't do that!

Other option I guess is to drill out of the cupboard and run the cable outside and back in behind TV.

I agree finding a way round it is a better option than the earlier idea
