doubt it can be done without some sort of computer control

as you need something to establish and control the VPN or IP transmissions. Maybe one of the ultra small plug like mini PC devices from Marvell will be the answer for you. Here's a wiki on it.

What kind of video?

by CharlieSpencer In reply to Video Over Ethernet

What's your input source?

Google 'video ethernet' or try Black Box's catalog.

response from your other post

There are a number of devices that will do it. I purchased one at Home depot to monitor the pool. It has a closed solution that broadcasts via rf to a box that is a network access point, then you hace the option to pipe it directly via RCA cables to the tv or over the network.

I don't think they'll do the job - he wants to go over a WAN

not a LAN, so the sender unit has to be able to establish and handle either VPN or continuously send out IP packets to an identified station as the signals will be probably going over the Internet - at least through a number of routers as it crosses the different networks.

Those units you mention all appear to be for hooking up to a local area network, and most are for a dedicated network to display on your PC.

Call it a monday brain fart. I had lan on the brain. The only devices I have seen for wan connections just stream from an IP address. You would have to have a receiver that could browse then output to a tv.

He does use the word 'Ethernet' in the post title. I too assumed that's what he meant. Now I don't know if he wants to use wire or wireless...
