[mythtv-users] mythtv and a central wiring closet

I have a question for anyone using a central wiring closet (CWC, home
run or Node 0 arrangement) along with a MythTV setup.

My current diagram has MythTV in a rack in the CWC.  It is connected to
the cable box and also an antenna.  My question is this: in a CWC
arrangement what is the best way to send the video signal from the
MythTV box to the TV?  Do some video cards have coax outputs?  Mine
doesn't.  It has a DVI out, but running a DVI cable to the TV seems
unfeasible (it's around 40 feet to the TV from the CWC).  I'd like to be
able to use the MythTV feed in any room that has a video (coax) jack.
What are people using in this arrangement?  Is this even an optimal

Thanks.  I also apologize if my question isn't entirely clear.  I'm
still reading about a lot of this and I don't know that I have a clear
grasp of all the jargon yet.
