Is there a way to take your coax cable coming out of the wall, put a splitter on it that splits it into (1) another coax that would go into the back of the TV and (2) into an adapter that allows me to use RCA's to connect to the TV.
If so, I could watch regular cable on all TV's and use the input channel to watch my TIVO on all TV's. I would only need to get a high powered remote control so that I could control the TIVO from anywhere in the house.
I'd say just run a coax to the other TVs, and use an A/B switch.
The type of RF-to-a/v device you're talking about doesn't seem to exist out there.
Trust me, I've looked.
The only time I found one was by Go Video about ten years ago, and the thing stopped working after about a year. When I phoned them about it, they said they didn't make it any more.
I wonder why.
There are plenty of gadgets that do the opposite of what you want, that take A/V signals and convert them TO an antenna signal, but to take an antenna signal and convert it to A/V, you'd need something pretty fancy.
Once in a while you can find wireless A/V transmitters, but I'm not even sure where you'd get one these days.
