Can anyone tell me if there is a way, or any method to get my digital cable to be routed thru a wireless network, so It can be viewed on my wireless laptop. or broadcast into the wireless network. It seems that there must be a way to route that signal into the network, maybe using a CATV setup, that stuff is cheap, but will it work, will anything work?
Thanks for your ideas and help.

Greetings Hoops48197

How about checking out a device called Slingbox.

Takes tv signals (Sat, cable, analog, ect) and puts it through your home router. Then from anywhere you can get a internet connection you have your TV on your computer. You can do from the Computer anything a handheld remote would be able to do to the TV.

Thanks for the response, I did go and check out the Slingbox, It will work, no doubt, in fact I may go get one tomorrow. I did some more checking, Comcast (my provider) says that you have to have there wireless network installed, by them for a fee, KMA, I have wireless, I want to force that sighal into the wireless, somehow. They need to make one box does both, a wireless for networking, and a cable signal out to broadband or something. I need another beer, so I can get a better perspective.

Thanks for the help
