Extend range of cable TV?

I have a gazebo out back that I sometimes entertain people at. Is there a way I can wireless receive a signal from my cable box back there and hook that up to a TV? Just wondering if there is an easy way to extend my cable TV without having to run coax and a cable box.

Have you tried using Windows Media Center plus an extender? I can stream live TV to my xbox with a wireless connection.

Thing is you either need a TV Tuner Card and antenna or a Cablecard tuner.

The Slingbox would probably be the ideal way to do it I guess because I could also view on my phone or laptop when I'm away from home. I'm guess the only way I could see it on a TV would be to hook up a computer to it right and stream it through that?

Yup...or use your TV as a monitor on your computer.
