I'm assuming you want to watch cable in two rooms but don't want to do another cable run and box?

That device will work, the reviews are mixed. I would do some reading before buying.

I used to do this in the days before HDMI with just coaxial by splitting it and running another cable to the second TV. The problem was then changing the channel from the other room. I got a device to do that but I won't get into it. I see that the iogear device you ask about has that capability. For the price of that device you could pay a monthly on another box for a good while.

You could do the same with an HDMI switch but would have to run an HDMI cable to the other TV. The problem with HDMI wireless transmitters is the cost and that they are prone to interference and there will be lag.

Here's is a bit more.

Short answer - No. Don't waste your money and time.

Any of the systems like this suffer from extreme low power output and interference from other electronics. The fault lies with the FCC only allowing incredibly small parts of the RF spectrum for use with home devices of all types. That might have been fine for the 1960s, but is a roadblock today.

I have something similar to this that got consigned to a junk box. It worked (sort of) at about 15 feet. Running cable is a PITA, but the only way for reliable results.
