XMBC on two TV's

Sat Nov 28, 2015 7:42 pm

Currently I have my PI directly connected to TV with HDMI.

But I was wondering if it possible to place my raspberry Pi nearby meter box in de hallway. And from there use it as media player XBMC for two televisons....

Your question is unclear.

1) if you want to connect one Pi to two TV's, showing the same output, you need an HDMI splitter

2) if you want to connect two TV's to one Pi, showing different output, NOT POSSIBLE

One Pi with one output. But one TV stands in living room and the other one upstairs. Are there HDMI splitters that long?
There is no other way?
There are HDMI splitters and extenders for 15 meters..but how about the quality and Rasperry PI is maybe cheaper less work and I can do more with it!
Maybe just buy myself another PI.....
