Question Fiber Optic Extenders

Hello members,

I have what may seem like an odd question but I have exhausted my Google and Bing Search capabilities.

In my previous life as a Network Admin, I leveraged Routers and Switches for years to carry electrical signals over vast distances via Fiber Optic Multi and Single Mode bundles. Indeed EOE conversion is mature and thriving. However, I keep striking out when it comes to Video (not baseband, but Cable Television Video signals via Coax)

So, here is my ask. I have recently moved into a new home and my office is now located in the Kitchen. My living room where the FiOS signal comes in and where the hub and primary cable box is, sits far enough that the route for cables to the Kitchen is against my Wife's better wishes. She has flatly prohibited me from running cable (unsightly as she calls it) to the Kitchen where I have a TV and of course all my computer gear etc.

Right now, I have the main FiOS router next to the TV so Wi-Fi is working OK throughout the house.

So I had an idea. I was able to negotiate with my wife to let me run white or paintable fiber cable from the Living Room to the Kitchen. My challenge is I can't find a way to carry the coax signal for the second cable box.

I would love to use a Multiplexer that can take Gigabit Ethernet and Coax Cable Signals at one end, Multi-Mode Fiber on the other and then a matching Demux at the other end.

Am I looking for something that does not exist? Do I have any other options? My goal is to bring Ethernet and FiOS to my Kitchen over the smallest possible physical link.

Thank you!

WOW, thanks for that... this is actually encouraging. Worst case I could use 4 strands instead of 2. Unfortunately for me my floors and ceilings are SOLID SLAB concrete

Prices are high, but, Optical has never been cheap
