Welcome to IWETHEY!

New OK, didn't think to ask ... what about the second TV?
Right now I've got the DVR connected to the TV in the living room, and a second cable box with the downstairs TV. If I switch to Roku or something else like that, how do I watch on the second TV? Do I need a second Roku and net connection?

New Cheapest is just buy another Roku
Otherwise you're talking about a shared cabinet with multiple outputs, remote IR blasters, and so on.

I did hear about someone who just output the Roku signal onto the shared coax, but you'd still need a remote solution.

New Thought so ... this just became less convenient
I don't have ethernet to the the basement yet.

New You could bridge it
Dunno what your main wireless router is, but I used an AirPort Express to extend a wired port to our living room.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Doh! Roku has wireless, should have figured.
Still means I'd need two of them, and no DVR functionality.

New What's the DVR for if you're cutting the cord? Broadcast?

Still have to figure out where to get the cable ones.
