Why do that? Run an HDMI cable (or coax or Cat-5) from your computer to your video screen. Cable runs are not that hard to do, and while it may seem daunting, trust me, it is so much easier to just have to run the video from your computer. HDMI over Cat5. Of course I'm sure coax or fiber would preferably over twisted pairs ... but if you run any kind of modern line through your house it should be able to carry the video."
