I have a Dish receiver that has 2 tuners in it.  I also have 2 TVs.  One is wifi equipped, then other is not.  Is there a way to send the AV signal from the Dish receiver to the two TVs wirelessly?  I want to plug the TVs into power and watch Dish.  I don't want to run cable throughout the house.  How would I do this?
Thanks!

If your tv is capable of picking up analog UHF, you can use a mini-UHF ransmitter to accomplish this...

They run between $25-$50 or so...

Here is an example:

A wireless AV transmitter/receiver set is something to try as suggested by n2fc above. You probably want to extend the Infra-Red to control the dish receiver like the one below.

It might work & is worth a try... If you look at the customer reviews, however, they seem to have issues with DirecTV not working...

That is not to say that Dish will behave the same way, but I would be wary!

So long as you can return it if it does not work as advertised, it is worth a shot!

Since it says it does NOT use wifi, I presume it transmits over your AC power line...

You are also limited to only ONE TV set as it includes a single transmitter & receiver.

That's for HDMI. If your Dish Network receiver has HDMI Out and your receiving TV has HDMI In, it's worth trying.

You probably want to confirm that it has an HDMI pass-thru so you can still connect HDMI to the non-wireless TV, which I assume is currently connected to the Dish receiver.
