Hi Evan!

This is fantastic! Great job!

I know content is the next item you're going to work on, but how will the
content be directed to the TVs? Do you plan to have the same content on
both TVs simultaneously or some kind of a slideshow that would loop?

The reason I ask is that I've played around with devices that convert HDMI
cables to Ethernet for long distances (100+ ft) since HDMI has signal
degradation at that length. Monoprice sells them

I'd be happy to help any way I can.
