Isthere a way to stream hdmi from a satellite dish to the apple network so that I can select any apple tv in the house and watch the satellite.

Another way of asking is that I want to be able watch the output from a single hdmi unit to any of the rooms in the house.

The short answer would be no.

There are devices better suited to that task.

Here's one. (http://www.slingbox.com/go/slingbox)

Very nice product, thanks. It does not let you watch from a TV though, just pc, mac, playbook, ipad etc.

You could get a sling catcher used.

It will probably cost you 3-4x more than it cost retail.

By the way - I assumed that the sling catcher was still available at retail. I guess not. You could use a HTPC of some sort to catch the sling content for your TV.

Hopefully someone else has a better idea.
