Post PC to HDTV and another TV

I have a HDTV and its tuner has a monitor output and i conect into that output a wireless video transmiter to another TV in other room, the only problem i have is that i want to get the PC signal from that output of the tuner but it doesn't show anything when i choose the PC input, it only transmits when the satellite input is selected...
I start to think that a VGA hub is the only solution...
Can any one help me?

Thks in advance...

The reason the PC input will not go out the monitor output is a resolution issue. The PC input is probably 800x600 if you have a HDTV, or 640x480 if you have a SDTV. Both cases the PC input will be progressive scan rather than the interlaced scan video that the monitor output will handle. They make a VGA to composite transcoder that would allow the PC to be input through one of the TV's composite video inputs, like your satellite. Also some computer video cards will have a composite or s-video output. You could get an s-video to composite adapter, if the PC has a s-video only and the TV does not have an s-video input.

Going composite video will result in a fuzzy picture as opposed to a PC VGA input, but that's what will allow the remote TV to work.
