Piggy back hdmi output from dish box to far away tv

So I hung an 32" HDTV in the garage (slowly turning into a man cave). I'm in an apartment and the garage is downstairs. By not directly below. Right below I'd another apartment. So running a cable will be a b!tch. Is there a way to wirelessly get that tv to talk to my other direct tv box and piggy back that box to that tv? I've heard of this being done but I can't find what I'm looking for online.

If I run an hdmi cable to that tv it'll hafta be a 100' cable, but then I still can't change the channel through the wallS.

Any key have any experience in doing this set up?

You can use cat 5e/cat6 and buy a transmitter and receiver to do the conversion. Category cable is cheap and far easier to run. Check monoprice if you do not want to spend a lot. This is your best option for running any sort of long distance application for digital video.

Preciate it. I went to best buy and found a wireless hdmi transmitter an receiver kit, works great! I can change the channel and everything from the other cable box no problems.

FYI there are wireless transmitters and receivers for HDMI, but can be pricy if you get the 60Ghz variety. If you are in an urban setting, I would not suggest anything else since you may experience unreliable results due to interference from wireless networks, cordless phones, etc.

That's what I got but can't remember the hertz rating, but it works perfectly!
