i need to place a camera in my garage to read a temperture led display
so i can view it from my house with out going outside
the distance is around 25metres however there is a small building between my house and the garage which blocks a clear line of sight
so i dont think wifi would work
does anyone know if an outdoor or maybe even indoor camera would work over those powerline adapters
or any other solution may work

actually, I would go with a wifi repeater attached to the middle building. put it on the "common corner", maybe kind of tucked under some cover, like the eve.
you can also look into a "antenna extension cable" for the cam.

if you like to tinker and want more privacy on the wifi signal, you can try doing an extended cable barrel antenna with a pringles (or other type of) can, for the camera, or the receiver.
Googling "Cantenna" or "pringle wifi", will get you lots of ideas.     ; )

Probably.
Easily?  It would depend on what  equipment you have you have in your "pile", TV connections you have to work with, and what you might be willing to spend if you need to convert the signal.

example:
In my current "pile", I could probably get it done by plugging an Original Xbox back into the network, and connecting to the Composite port on the TV, or a DVD/BR if you need HDMI to the TV.
A Slingbox might be another way to go, but I haven't played with one of those yet,   : )

I don't actually see how the chosen 'answer' is actually 'the answer'?
