Don't know if this option was mentioned :

Connect the output of your mythbox to a modulator and feed this back to a coax 
cable if you already have that available through your home to transfer 
video/audio. Buy a remote extender to extend the remote control to the other 
room and control your myth box.
If no cable is available buy a video transmitter which already includes the 
remote extender.

Disadvantages :
1) video is not perfect (lower quality than a direct output).
2) audio is not in dolby digital, just stereo.

Advantage :
cheap and doesn't require another frontend.
