A television signal can be transferred from one TV to another video display, providing that both have video inputs and outputs. A wireless transmission system can transfer the signal and is available from an electronics store or the TV accessories section of a department store. Audio/video cables found in most households, but which can be acquired from the same stores as the wireless transmission system, must be used as well.
