Any Experience with Wireless HDMI for Satellite TV?

I am toying with the idea of getting the Winegard PA6002R Pathway X2 and using wireless HDMI to broadcast the picture and sound to the TV's.

Does anyone have any experience with this or know of less expensive/ more straight forward options for hooking up the satellite dish?

My thought is that the satellite would connect to the cable input in the electrical compartment. I would then connect the satellite receiver to the connection in the front passenger side overhead compartment and steam the signal wirelessly to any of the TVs.

Any ideas of experiences would be appreciated.

This is actually exactly what we have done - we have a tailgater, which we hook to the "cable" coax in the rear compartment.

Inside, in the cabinet over the passenger seat is where our satellite receiver is - and the HDMI output goes to a transmitter there, with the receiver plugged into the TV (we actually have 2 transmitters with a HDMI splitter, and a receiver for each TV, main & bedroom, because the one we bought can't link to 2 receivers)
We originally had one and just moved the receiver between the main TV and the bedroom, because we didn't watch them separately. with the HDMI splitter, you do have to watch the same show on both TV's however.

This is the transmitter/receiver we used.

works well, most of the time- we do end up with a sound mismatch occasionally, but it usually corrects itself after a few minutes.

Let me know if you have more questions.
Thanks
Garren

Here is what I used. An omega HDMI transmitter that has 2 different input sources and one output for the TV and then it transmits an HDMI signal to the bedroom TV.
I connect one of the inputs from my satellite receiver and the other input from my Sony Blueray DVD home theater.

This way I can watch directv, DVD stereo on either the den TV, bedroom TV or outside TV.
Omega has transmitters that have multiple inputs and outputs so you can watch different inputs on different outputs at the same time.
